A small victory for air travellers. Transport Canada has announced a relaxation in certain items that were previously banned from carry-on luggage.
This development allows scissors with blades under six centimetres, nail clippers and similar items. Knives, regardless of their size, are still forbidden in the aircraft cabin.
Also announced were some changes to Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA), the agency charged with security in Canadian airports. Improvements will be made to screening processes, identification and separation of suspicious baggage, and lane configurations for for families and travellers carrying NEXUS cards.
