Check the current wait times at major Canadian Airports

Wait times for queues at security screening are calculated through the scanning of boarding passes when you enter the beginning of the queue; and once again before you begin your individual screening process.

Wait times do not include:

  • The time required to check in for your flight and drop your baggage at the air carrier counter
  • The time required for you and your carry-on baggage to be processed through the screening process
  • The time required to go through Customs for U.S. flights (in airports where available)
  • The time required to reach your boarding gate
