Tips for a smooth Spring Break getaway
(NC)—The month of March marks the beginning of a peak season for airports all across Canada as people escape to warmer temperatures or take advantage of the snow and hit the slopes. With more people traveling, there is often an increase in security screening-related issues however. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority offers these helpful tips to ensure a stress-free airport security screening:
• Boarding pass and ID should be out and ready to present to the screening officer.
• Overcoats including suit jackets, blazers and sport jackets will need to be removed and placed in the bins provided.
• Avoid wearing shoes with metal arches, buckles, steel toes or shanks, as well as belts with big metal buckles.
• Laptop computers will need to be removed from their carry-cases and placed in the bin.
• Other electronic equipment, such as cell phones, cameras and tablets can be kept in your carry-on baggage.
• Liquids, gels and aerosols like suntan lotion, toothpaste, shampoo and other personal products must not exceed 100ml and can be kept in your carry-on luggage.
