CATSA has posted an alert advising all passengers of the potential for enhanced screening at Canadian aiports. We recomment passengers arrive a minumum of 2 hours prior to departure to ensure sufficient time to pass through the security screening process. For further detail please see the information below.
ALERT – Enhanced screening measures are in effect. Passengers will continue to be randomly selected for additional screening, which will now include screening of their electronic devices. If selected, you will be asked to remove any covers or protective cases from your electronic devices before inspection, and may be asked to show that they can be powered up. Before travel, you should be aware:
- CATSA’s first priority is the security of the travelling public.
- As a result of enhanced security screening measures, passengers may experience longer than usual wait times. Passengers should be prepared to arrive at the airport early and can contact their airline if they require more information.
- Passengers can check wait times by visiting the CATSA website or app.
- Passengers will continue to be randomly selected for additional screening, which will now include screening of their electronic devices. All passengers should ensure that covers and protective cases can be easily removed and that their electronic devices are charged.
- Passengers are encouraged to remove the protective cover from their electronic devices in advance of screening, in order to facilitate the screening process.
- Electronic devices that cannot be taken out of their cases or powered on when requested during enhanced screening will not be permitted beyond the screening checkpoint.
- For more information on the implementation of these measures, please contact Transport Canada.
