credit card knives to the airport Credit card knife (CNW
Group/Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA))
June 2, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Air
Transport Security Authority (CATSA) would like to
remind air travellers that credit card-size utility
knives are not permitted in carry-on or checked
baggage. These items are concealed knives and, as
such, are illegal under the Criminal Code of Canada.
Recently, CATSA has seen a marked increase in the
number of credit card knives being intercepted
across security checkpoints.
When a screening officer finds a credit card knife,
the police must be notified. This causes undue
delays at the checkpoint for all passengers and can
lead to criminal charges and prosecution against the
person carrying the item.
