Do i have to recheck my baggage?

Do i have to recheck my baggage?

I'm flying NVT (GOL airlines) > CGH (Air Canada) > YYZ (Air Canada) > YHZ.

Does anyone know if i'll have to collect my bags and recheck when I arrive to CGH?

Trying to plan for my quick layover.

Are you on one ticket for GOL and AC or separate. If separate you may need to reclaim your luggage and check it in with AC. AC and GOL do have an interline agreement, if on separate tickets check with GOL when you check in and see if they will check it through for you.

I think you will have to get your bags and change airport (hope you have left a lot of time).

Had to look up CGH and I don't think AC flies there (domestic airport). AFAIK, AC flies to GRU so you'll have to get yourself and your bags from CGH to GRU.

Yes you are correct poster 2, did not read the arriving airport on GOL, my error. I have actually done this myself and you need a huge amount of time to transfer airports, the two airports are nowhere near each other.
