Travel Tips

To help make your travel experience as easy as possible, follow these tips:

Go online

Passengers are encouraged to check-in, pay fees and retrieve their boarding pass online from home to help speed up your experience at the airport.

Plan how you will get to YLW in advance

To guarantee a parking spot, passengers can pre-book valet parking services. There are also alternative transportation options to the airport, such as taxi and limousine services, airport shuttles, public transit or having a friend drop you off

Confirm your airline’s identification requirements

Check with your airline to ensure you have the required identification and valid travel documentation for everyone, including children. If you are not a Canadian or American citizen and you are travelling to the United States you may be required to complete an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ETSA) application, which you can do online before arriving to the airport by visiting the ETSA website.

Arrive at the airport early

It is recommended to arrive at the terminal building at least two hours before your domestic flights.

Know what you can pack in carry-on and checked baggage

When packing for your trip, visit catsa.gc.ca to check if items should be packed in checked baggage or carry-on. If you're bringing gifts, leave them unwrapped as they may need to be inspected. Check with your airline to learn about their baggage restrictions and fees.
