Streamlining Travel Experience for Eligible Passengers
Are you tired of the never-ending lines and airport chaos? Well, fret no more! Toronto Pearson International Airport has exciting news for air travellers. A new program called Verified Traveller is set to revolutionize your airport experience, promising faster and more efficient screening procedures. Get ready to breeze through the airport like a seasoned jetsetter!
Verified Traveller: Your Ticket to Swift Airport Screening
The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) is taking the lead in making air travel a breeze for eligible passengers. Recently announced by Federal Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra, the Verified Traveller program aims to streamline airport crowding, just in time for the upcoming summer travel season.
Starting from June 21, the Verified Traveller program will replace the Trusted Traveller Program, which previously offered select passengers dedicated fast-tracked lines and queues. This updated measure will expand the availability of time-saving benefits during security screenings.
Skip the Hassles: Time-Saving Perks
Get ready to enjoy some fantastic perks while zipping through security! Eligible travellers, including members of the Nexus and Global Entry programs, active Canadian Armed Forces and US military members (including reservists, aircrew, airport workers, and law enforcement), will have the privilege of keeping their laptops, electronics, and compliant gels and liquids in their carry-on baggage. Say goodbye to the dreaded shoe and belt removal!
Faster Together: Accompanying Travel Companions
The new program brings a heartwarming change for eligible travellers with children and elderly adults. Passengers accompanying children aged 17 and younger or adults aged 75 and older can now join their travel companions in the faster-moving lines, provided they are booked on the same reservation. It’s time to enjoy a stress-free journey together!
Convenience Across Canada
The Verified Traveller program isn’t limited to Toronto Pearson International Airport. Starting from June 21, eligible travellers can access these time-saving lines at select domestic and international checkpoints in airports across Canada. Whether you’re flying through Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, or Montreal, the program has got you covered!
A Brighter Travel Season Ahead
As we gear up for a busy summer travel season, the Verified Traveller program aims to ease congestion and ensure a smoother experience for passengers. Transport Canada believes that the use of dedicated Verified Traveller lines will gradually alleviate crowding and enhance efficiency over time.
Toronto Pearson’s Commitment to Improvement
The introduction of the Verified Traveller program aligns with Toronto Pearson International Airport’s commitment to enhancing passenger experience. In May, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) unveiled a range of improvements to streamline operations. These include contactless check-in and boarding processes, as well as a partnership with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) to introduce biometric e-gates for quicker customs clearance. Toronto Pearson is raising the bar to make your journey seamless and stress-free.
So, get ready to bid farewell to long queues and travel headaches. The Verified Traveller program at Toronto Pearson International Airport is your ticket to a hassle-free airport experience. Fast-track your way through security, keep your belongings intact, and enjoy a smoother journey. Bon voyage!
