Arrive Early for Early Morning Flights


Due to a higher than expected volume, passengers traveling in the mornings are advised to arrive 2 hours prior to their departure time to ensure that they do not miss their flight. Longer wait times at security screening may be experienced particularly for flights departing prior to 9:00am. 

Both Air Canada and WestJet have a strict 45-minute cut-off time for domestic flights so passengers are recommended to arrive well before this cut-off time to allow time for check-in and security screening. 

The Charlottetown Airport Authority is recommending that passengers arrive early for their departure and proceed through security screening as soon as possible after check-in.

Thank you.
