New kiosks to streamline international flight return process

(Jonathan Muma, 660 NEWS)

CALGARY (660 NEWS) — New kiosks at the Calgary International Airport should make it easier to get home after your international flight.

80 Primary Inspection Kiosks (PIK) will be installed in the airport, starting on May 22, with the final phase of the project ending June 4, to help speed up the return process.

These kiosks eliminate paper declaration forms, with passengers instead scanning their documents at the kiosk, answering a few questions, then having their photo taken to verify identity.

These replace existing automated border control (ABC) units, and YYC is the tenth major Canadian airport to have these systems.

The Calgary Airport Authority is paying for the units. It is not anticipated that the implementation of PIK’s will increase fees or costs to airlines or guests.

Also, if you download the CanBorder eDeclaration app on your phone, you can make the process even faster.
