July 20, 2017 -

Effective July 19, 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has implemented enhanced security measures for passengers flying to the United States. These measures include heightened inspection of personal electronic devices, such as laptops and tablets. Electronic devices larger than a smartphone must be charged with enough battery power to be turned on upon request and easily accessible, with covers, cases or any other packaging removed, in preparation for screening at the security checkpoint. Any refused item will not be permitted in checked baggage. Air Transat will be unable to provide storage or assume responsibility for these items during your trip.

To allow for additional time to go through security and to ensure you don’t miss your flight, please arrive at the airport three hours prior to your scheduled departure time.

For further information, please visit the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website.

On-board

Air Transat strives to provide a safe and secure environment on board our aircraft for you, your fellow passengers and our crewmembers. In this section, we outline the types of behaviour that are considered disorderly and the penalties imposed by law.

Anyone in contravention of the law or violating the rights of others will be intercepted by the police upon landing, and could face fines of up to CA $100,000, a jail sentence of up to five years, or both.

Under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Aeronautics Act, it is illegal to behave in a threatening manner. The crew will not tolerate any disorderly behaviour on board the aircraft.

Examples of interference:

  • Harassment
  • Verbal abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual offences
  • Intimidating behaviour
  • Intoxicated and disorderly conduct
  • Disregard of smoking regulations, including electronic cigarettes
  • Consuming carry-on or duty-free alcoholic beverages
  • Refusal to follow instructions of the crew
  • Endangering the safety of the aircraft
