When to arrive at Toronto Airport for a flight to New York

Hi,

We are flying to JFK, New York from Pearson Toronto airport. Our flight leaves at 1120 and we are flying with American Airlines. Just wondering what time we need to be there to check in and clear customs etc.?

Also, just wondering how much we can expect to pay to check in luggage, our bags will weigh about 20kg?

Thanks

1.5-2 hours before a US flight is generally adequate. Check your airline's website for baggage allowances and fees.

Hi Rebecca;

The airport's website states...

"U.S. bound flights - please check in a minimum of two hours prior to departure"

$25 for the first bag, $35 for the second bag, max 50 lb (23 kg) per bag. From https:/… .

And yes, 2 hours is about right since it's not the busiest time of day, but you will have to deal with US immigration formalities in Toronto. Don't forget to complete ESTA before you leave home.
