Passenger Screening

All departing passengers are subject to security screening prior to boarding the aircraft. The Nanaimo Airport reminds passengers that sharp items, such as scissors, pocket knives, and metal nail files should not be packed on carry on luggage. As required by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA), your luggage will be searched at the security entrance to the boarding lounge.

Please insure that you are not carrying inflammable liquids, gases, or other dangerous goods in your carry on luggage. Laptop computers must be removed from bags at the security point and screened separately in order to avoid damage by x-ray screening. For more information visit the sites below:
