For outbound passengers going to the United States via Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, or Halifax, US customs clearance is done at the respective airports.
For all other outbound passengers, customs clearance is done in the country of final destination (if connecting through another country, that country may require clearance).
For inbound passengers, customs clearance is done at the first point of entry into Canada where passengers exit the aircraft.
For domestic flights, it is recommended that you arrive 1.5 hours in advance. For international flights, airlines recommend that you arrive 3 hours in advance for Caribbean destinations and 4 hours in advance for European destinations. In the event of a delay, it is recommended that you check-in for the original scheduled time as flight status can change at any time. If uncertain, please contact your airline ahead of time.

YFC is the code issued to this particular airport. ‘Y’ identifies it as a Canadian airport and ‘FC’ identifies it as Fredericton.
International designation is given to airports that meet a certain set of criteria. It is not related to the number of international flights an airport has. To receive international status, the Fredericton International Airport Authority Inc. extended Runway 09/27, built a larger customs facility, refurbished the departures area, performed obstruction clearance procedures, designed ICAO Type A drawings, etc. Receiving this status was a major accomplishment and allows for more opportunities through greater credibility.
Passengers travelling to/from the US are currently required to provide the following information in advance:
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- Passport Number
- Passport Expiry Date
- Passport country of issuance
- Country of residence
- Your address while in the US, or if visiting various locations, the address for the first night in the US (except for US citizens or Legal Permanent Residents)
For more detailed information, please contact your airline.
