Safety & Security

Full Body Scanner - The Charlottetown Airport has been chosen by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) to use the new technology of Full Body Scanner (FBS) imaging. Passengers selected for secondary screening have the option of choosing the full-body scanner or a physical search.  The FBS system works by generating images of the body without contact between the screening officer and passenger. The enhanced technology has been developed to allow for the detection of items which may be concealed under clothing.
