Getting Ready to Fly in Canada

By July 11, 2013

Follow me on:

As we're into another busy season for air travel in Canada, it's a good idea to get ready before you head to the airport, especially if you haven't flown for a while.

Airport Security

One organization that can help make your air travel a little less confusing is the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA), the Canadian crown corporation responsible for screening air passengers and their baggage in Canada.

Their Web site includes a What to Pack section with information on which items are permitted and which aren't. It also tells you how to speed up security screening of both people and baggage, including international regulations, and tips for different types of passengers, like seniors, small children and those with special needs. You can even check the current security wait times by airport in Canada.

It's a good idea to check the Web sites for the airlines you'll be using too.

Knowing what to expect at the airport and preparing before you get there could save you time and make your trip a lot less stressful.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to tell someone!
