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.
