Security screening

Canadian Air Transport Security Authority provides a security screening at Sudbury Airport. The procedure is intended to remove hazardous objects from the Sudbury airport area.

Passengers are asked to remove shoes, belts, jackets and place them in the bin for the screening. CATSA recommends that liquids, aerosols, and gels must be put in clear plastic bags; during the security screening, they must be put into the plastic conveyor. Unlocked computers also must be placed in the separate plastic bin that helps CATSA security officers to X-ray the image more clearly. A part of the security screening is to pass through a metal detector, and if you follow the rules, the process will be very efficient and quick for you.
