St. John’s International Airport Departures

Checking In

All airlines advise to complete check-in procedures online, but computer kiosks are also available inside the terminal building. Kiosks can be found at each customer service counter.

Even though St. John’s International Airport is relatively small in size, passengers are not recommended to delay their arrival time too much by showing up for a flight. Commuters should allow themselves plenty of time to check-in and drop off their luggage.

It is always advised to check and see if a flight is delayed or canceled before leaving the airport. St. John’s is frequently experiencing some extreme weather conditions (especially in the winter), and it’s one of the foggiest places in Newfoundland. New facility improvements will soon limit these inconveniences, but they represent an unfortunate reality of Eastern Canada travel.

Pre-board Screening & Carry-on Luggage

Security regulations administered by the Canadian Air Transport Security Agency (CATSA) limit the type of objects that can be carried onto an aircraft. For avoiding the disappointment of having personal belongings confiscated or experiencing delays at pre-board screening, commuters can review the following security measures related to gels, liquids, and aerosols.

  • Containers should be 100 ml or less and placed in a clear, resealable, and closed, 1L plastic bag (one bag per person).
  • Customers should place all items over 100 ml in the checked luggage.
  • Exemptions are breast milk, baby formula, or juice in case of traveling with a child under two years old, insulin, prescription medicine, or other essential non-prescription medications like saline solution.

For receiving more information about what is permitted to be carried onto the plane and what has to be packed in the luggage, travelers can contact CATSA.
