Air Canada Just Updated How Early Pearson Airport Travellers Need To Check In For Their Flights

Attention all Air Canada passengers: if you're travelling out of Pearson Airport anytime soon, you'll have to check in earlier now.

As of today, October 13, Air Canada is asking passengers flying out of YYZ to check in and drop off their bags 90 minutes before their flight is expected to take off. This deadline applies to everyone who is flying to the U.S. or to an international destination.

There will also be a brand new queue system for passengers departing to the U.S. before noon in order to help with the flow. "After you check-in, look for the signage to see which queue you should enter for your flight," the airline tweeted on October 8.

"The aim is to ensure customers have adequate time to catch their flights and to improve customer flow at the airport," an Air Canda spokesperson told Narcity via email, adding that the new deadline will aim to reduce congestion at security and customs. "Prior to this, the cut-off was 60 minutes."

A spokesperson for Pearson Aiport told Narcity via email that they aren't aware of any other airlines making changes to their check-in times.

Earlier this summer, travellers landing at Pearson Airport complained about the long lines at customs and criticized the baggage claim process.
