Connection through YUL
 
Hello all. I will be traveling to an international destination in June from Orlando FL. I have a stop in YUL with 2-hour layover. Would that be long enough? I have never gone through Canada before and don't know what to expect. I'll be flying on air canada both flights.

Edit: It's actually a 3-hour layover.

Two hours is plenty if traveling on one ticket/PNR ...

Ok, so basically I will have to pass customs, but I don't have to pick up my bags.

It's just a basic passport check and then you go straight to your departure gate. You'll be trying to find things to do with all of your extra time.

I'm pretty sure JC94 is asking which airline you are flying with.

You can buy MLL access for $25 on AC (when in PY, itís more from Flex Y). Thereís a Intl MLL in YUL, theyíre not the best lounges generally, and Iíve only been in the Dom one there but thereís a thread about it on the AC forum if that helps.

FWIW, I always buy MLL Intl lounge access when flying AC PY. At least if Iím going to be there a few hours. However you do need to buy in advance and if you get delayed and donít have much time I doubt theyíll refund it.

Not sure on other lounge options at YUL. Others may well do though :)

Ok Iíll take a look at the lounge

By the way, what do you mean by "basic passport check"?

Take a look, don't stamp it. Keeps things moving.
