Transport Canada has now relaxed the ruling in place now allowing two carry-on items per passenger into the cabin of the aircraft. Canadian and U.S. security agencies continue to work together on ways to improve security and reduce the impact on air travellers.
Restrictions for carry-on luggage were put in place last December after a failed attempt by Umar Abdulmutallab to blow up an airplane destined for Detroit, Michigan. Since then, heightened security has seen flights from Canada into the United States bar carry-on baggage and limiting it to a small personal item (e.g. handbag, purse or laptop computer), while passengers were told to remain seated for the duration of their flight.
Remember to check with your airline first as they may have varying restrictions on carry-on baggage, or visit the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority web site for further details on the carry-on baggage update.
