Possibly, if you didn't have to re-check your luggage. Canadian immigration is pretty speedy. But it's a tight connection, and a small amount of bad luck could easily lead to a missed flight, and then you'd be stuck in Montreal overnight (a pleasant place to be stuck, but still). I would never ever try it unless it was a single-ticket, guaranteed connection. ...

Air Canada note that 40 minutes is the minimum time, although they note this only applies for Air Canada/Jazz flights. I'd personally want to allow more time though

Canada cares very much about drunk driving and will deny entry to anyone who has been convicted of it, even if it was not considered a serious offense in that person's home country. Canada may also refuse entry if you were convicted of what they call dangerous driving. Based on your description, that does not seem to be what you were convicted of. If you ...

You can talk directly to someone at the baggage office from the airport. My bag had not yet cleared customs as of 8am the day after it arrived (at 3:30pm), but an Air Canada employee brought it through for me after I'd told them that I knew it was there and provided my file number. To do this, go to the "baggage claim" in the external part of the ...

As of July 2016, there are millimeter wave detectors at every single security lane in Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau airport. However, you can choose to get patted down instead of going through the scanner. Simply ask the staff before going through.

They do need an ETA. They will clear Customs, although the customs check is a less-involved one if they are transiting. I'm assuming they are EU citizens and if so, they won't need a visa. Many Canadian airports now let you clear Customs without your bags, but I'm not sure if Montreal Trudeau airport is doing that or not. 2 hours is not a terrible amount ...

As far as I could find, there isn't any search engine that can specifically find late-checkout rooms. Some hotel chains offer it on their websites or list the late-checkout in their description, but you'd have to manually go through the list of hotels in the area. For example, you can search for "Montreal" + "late check out" in Google to find some options. ...

Canadian airports are moving to a model where passengers on a single booking can transit directly from their international arrival to US preclearance without going to Canadian immigration and customs. This has been rolled out at Montreal and most other Canadian airports. From the airport website: If your flight originated outside Canada or the United ...

Unfortunately the answer is "you will probably make it" but you won't know before you get there. The minimum connection time for Canada to US for Montreal is 55 minutes. The airline determines this by monitoring the actual number of missed connections and dialing the time in so that this number is at some target. If they make it longer they will lose some ...

I presume the question is asking which part of the terminal (ie. to get to which gates) these scanners are used, and possibly even the location within security (left, middle, right) they are located. I'm presuming this because this was also my initial question when I heard about the introduction of these scanners, as if there's only one at the end of ten or ...
