New Carry on Luggage Restrictions
 
August 10th/2006 - Please note that Transport Canada Security Requirements have changed for carry on luggage and therefore Sunwing Airlines passengers should be aware of, and will be required by Sunwing Airlines to comply with the following:
 
PERMITTED THROUGH PRE-BOARD SECURITY SCREENING:
 
- Liquids, gels and aerosols through security screening at Canadian airports provided that the items are packaged in containers with a capacity of 100 ml / 100 grams (3.4 oz.) or less are permitted through pre-board security screening as long as they fit comfortably in one (1) clear, closed and re-sealable plastic bag with a capacity of no more than 1 litre (1 quart). Please note that bags stretched beyond their capacity are not permitted.
 
NOTE: One bag per passenger will be permitted, which must be removed from carry-on baggage and placed separately in the screening bins provided at airport security.
 
In addition, you may have the item listed below. Passengers must declare all such items to security screening authorities not in a bag or in containers over 100 ml / 100 grams (3.4 oz.)
 
- Prescription medicine with a name that matches the passenger’s ticket or boarding pass, insulin and other essential non-prescription liquid medicines (e.g. cough syrup, ointment, moisturizers, and decongestant nasal spray) continue to be permitted and are exempted from the container size restrictions. To speed up the screening process, passengers should be prepared to present documentation supporting a medical condition, i.e., a doctor’s note.
 
- Baby formula, baby food and milk, when passengers are traveling with a child aged two years or under.
 
NOT PERMITTED THROUGH PRE-BOARD SECURITY SCREENING:
 
- Unsealed, open or opaque plastic bags of any size with liquids, gels or aerosols in any size container will not be permitted through the pre-boarding security screening in carry-on baggage.
 
- Liquids, gels or aerosols in containers larger than 100 ml / 100 grams (3.4 oz).
 
All passengers should carry liquids, gels and aerosols in the containers and plastic bag specified, or pack these items in their checked baggage, in order to minimize potential delays at the screening point. Please note that lighters may not be carried in checked baggage on any flight, or in carry-on baggage to and from the United States.
 
The sale of liquids, gels and aerosols at all retailers, both duty free and non-duty free, located within the sterile areas of Canadian airports, continues to be permitted where the airport has met additional security requirements for these items. In addition, all passengers, including those traveling to the United States, will be permitted to carry liquids, gels and aerosols purchased beyond the security screening point onboard the aircraft.
 
ALL PASSENGERS ARE ADVISED TO TRAVEL LIGHT. IN ORDER TO EXPEDITE THE SECURITY SCREENING PROCESS KEEP YOUR CARRY-ON ITEMS TO A MINIMUM AND ENSURE YOU HAVE COMPLIED WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE RESTRICTIONS.
