This question already has an answer here:

I am going back from 14 days US vacation to Germany via Denmark, flying on Air Canada from Newark, transferring in Toronto and leaving Toronto to Copenhagen (CPH) on Air Canada 4 hours later. Both AC flights are on the same ticket and I am German. On a separate Star Alliance ticket (Scandinavian Airlines), I will fly from CPH to Germany after 2 hours layover in CPH.

  1. Will I be able to check my luggage through to Denmark or Germany from New York? Don't think so, because from Toronto Airport Website I understood, that I will have to gather and recheck my luggage.

  2. I have read on a forum, that at Toronto Terminal I might get "locked" in an area, from where it is impossible to go to the Maple Leaf Lounge until it is time to go to customs and security. Did I misunderstand or might something similar be possible?

    This does not feel like a duplicate. It's actually rather complicated. Canadian airports do NOT have a concept of transit. You have to immigrate into Canada first. See torontopearson.com/Connecting_from_usa.aspx# . It's unclear whether you bags get tagged through or whether Canadian customs wants to see them. Check with the airline. You will have to collect your bags in CPH and do a full check in for the flight to Germany – Hilmar Jul 23 '15 at 13:00

    @pnuts,thanks for your words of encouragement concerning my English,but as the post by Hilmar shows,transfer seems to be pretty tricky and I`ll make a call to AC. – Birge Frey Jul 23 '15 at 22:57
  • @Hilmar,thank you for convincing me not to search for answers to questions no one can answer,as there simply seems to be no rule.Collecting the bags in CPH is no problem-small airport and time enough – Birge Frey Jul 23 '15 at 23:06
