Message to Passengers - Arrive Earlier For Your Flight

Nov 25, 2015

A Message to Passengers

Please be advised that it is especially important to get to the airport early for departing flights. Longer wait times at security screening may be experienced particularly for flights departing prior to 9:00am.

Domestic flights are closed 45-minutes prior to departure and Transborder and International flights are closed 60-minutes prior to departure.  There is a also a project underway to replace the hold baggage system which requires that a passenger selfs drops their checked baggage at a temporary facility located at the east end of terminal building.

The Victoria Airport Authority is recommending that passengers arrive to check-in for their flights a full 90-minutes in advance of departure and proceed through security screening as soon as possible after check-in.

For further information on security screening, please check the CATSA webpage at and CATSA mobile website at

Thank you.
