A new domestic Pre-Board Screening (PBS) location opened at Calgary Airport’s concourse B on October 28. The Calgary Airport Authority and Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) opened the three lines (two regular and one lane for priority/families/accessible guests) which will be staffed during peak times Sunday to Friday, 7 to 11 a.m. When PBS B is not available, guests can use PBS A and C.
“We know guests have had long waits at peak times to be screened for domestic flights, and this additional location will help increase capacity and make travel faster and easier,” said Chris Miles, Vice President Operations, The Calgary Airport Authority.
Previously, CATSA processed passengers with 10 lines at YYC Calgary International Airport. The additional screening location will increase the screening capacity by 30 percent.
Trusted Travellers (NEXUS users) wishing to use dedicated lanes will continue using PBS A & C, as PBS B will not have this service. PBS B is an interim solution while the airport and CATSA look at long-term solutions to consolidate domestic screening into one location in the future.
