The Canadian Airports Council (CAC) President, Monette Pasher, today issued the following statement:
“The Canadian Airports Council welcomes today’s announcement regarding the roll out of risk-based screening in Canada. The Verified Traveller Program is an important step forward that will help travellers move smoothly through security at six airports, reducing processing times and improving the overall passenger journey for pre-approved travellers.
Canada’s Airports have been requesting risk-based screening for years, we are encouraged by this progress announced today. We look forward to working with government and CATSA on the next step of expanding this program to more Canadian airports and creating a true domestic trusted traveller program so that more Canadians can take advantage of faster screening.”
