Flying Toronto to Vancouver and then on to Hawaii with Westjet. Will we have to reclaim luggage in Vancouver?
I am arriving from USA in YVR connecting to YYC. Both flights on WestJet. Bags will be tagged through to YYC. Will I have to collect my bags after customs and put them back at a connecting baggage counter?
Will a U.S. citizen travelling on an international flight via Canada be able to bypass Canada Customs and go direct to International terminal? thanks
Hi,
Is 1hour 45min enough connection time at YVR from PVG to PDX? This is for US citizen, the flight from PVG to YVR is Air Canada and the flight from YVR to PDX is Air Canada Express - Jazz. Is 1hour 45min enough for custom, security clearance, getting to the gate, etc? Thanks!

We have a flight booked from Victoria to Vancouver then to Toronto before flying to Lima. Our Victoria flight arrives at 8:16 at main terminal . Our flight from Vancouver to Toronto is 9:00. Is this enough time?
We’re traveling from Yvr to grand cayman. We have short connections (45minutes) for both connections, same airline. Do we need to collect baggage or go through security for the connecting us connections?
I have a connecting flight in Vancouver that is only 1.5 hours to get to another flight to leave to Tokyo. Is this enough time to change flights? Flights are all with ANA.

Any info would be great!!
Thanks.
Is there a special permission you can get to meet child flying into YVR alone right at the gate?
I am returning to Canada from the UK on Air Canada through Vancouver then to Saskatoon, my final destination. Do I need to collect my checked luggage at YVR for transfer to YXE?
hi OA, if you are flying on air Canada all the way to Saskatoon as long as your bags are labelled for Saskatoon, you just go through the connecting flights side of arrivals, and you will not have to collect your bags. If flying on a different airline (i.e. west jet), you will have to collect your bags and check them back in again through the domestic terminal.
I have 1 hour to make a connection between a domestic flight to a US flight - both Air Canada. Can you tell me the quickest way through? Do I need to go out to the terminal and then re-enter or is there a custom/immigration for travellers in transit?
