Pearson airport implements new security system.




Toronto’s Pearson International Airport is trying to make security more efficient for passengers taking off on their next vacation by implementing the new security system called CATSA Plus introduced by Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).

The new system has passengers enter through e-gates, which anonymously tracks them through censors mounted on the ceilings in the area, as they move through security, lowering the amount of times boarding passes need to be shown.

Then passengers will line up in one of the seven lanes to unload their belongings in the designated bin. Each has an identification tag for proper tracking. As well, a photo is taken of each bin prior to it entering the x-ray system.
