Other Items of Interest at Ottawa Airport
The Ottawa Airport is notorious for losing checked bags or for bags not accompanying your flight (personal experience from a few IHT Team members). It is recommended you bring a change of clothes with you on the plane just in case.
If you are transiting to the United States from another city in Canada via Ottawa be very careful of your checked luggage as it will not be automatically transferred to your US destination. This is despite contradictionary advice given by airline agents. You NEED to pick-up your luggage at the carousel belt in Ottawa and re-check your luggage otherwise your bag will remain in Ottawa. There is no real logic to why this process in in place other than lack of resources available at the Ottawa Airport to simply transfer your bags for you.
