CATSA Implements New Enhanced Screening

On July 19, 2017, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) implemented enhanced screening measures to passenger screening. The screening will include heightened screening for larger personal electronic devices bigger than a smart-phone (iPad, Laptops, etc.)

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:

• Make sure your cases can be easily removed, or are removed in advance, and
• Ensure that any devices you are travelling with are charged and can power up.

Note: 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.
