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.

Important notice about passport requirements and validity

Passengers are responsible for obtaining valid travel documents (passport, visa or other required documents) that comply with the entry and exit requirements of any country visited. A passenger who does not hold the required travel documents may be denied boarding or entry into the country of destination.

A valid passport is required for travel to all international destinations.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Canadians travelling for tourism purposes in a European Union country must hold a passport valid for at least three (3) months beyond the date of expected return from that country (exceptions: United Kingdom and Ireland require a valid Canadian passport only). For Sun destinations, the validity period must usually be at least three (3) months beyond the date of expected return. Regulations may vary for non-Canadian passport holders.

Given that entry and exit requirements may change without notice, please consult www.iatatravelcentre.com and www.travel.gc.ca for more information.
