CATSA Implements New Enhanced Screening for Electronics
Beginning July 19, 2017, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) implemented enhanced screening at select Canadian airports, including Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, for passengers travelling to all destinations. Enhanced screening may include a secondary search and/or additional screening of electronics the size of a cell phone or larger. Passengers will continue to be randomly selected by CATSA for additional screening, which will now include screening of these electronic devices. All passengers should ensure that covers and protective cases can be easily removed and that their electronic devices are charged.
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.
