Pre-board screening of passengers and baggage at the Medicine Hat airport is provided by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).

Travelling passengers are only allowed a maximum two (2) carry-on baggage per person. Please contact your air carrier for size and weight restrictions.

Tips on How to Pack Liquids, Gels & Aerosols in your Carry-on Baggage
  • Containers of liquids, gels or aerosols in your carry-on should be 100 ml/100 grams (3.4 oz) or less. Any containers over 100 ml should be placed in checked baggage.
  • All containers must fit in 1 clear, closed, resealable plastic bag no more than 1 litre (1 quart) in capacity. The approximate dimensions of a one litre/quart bag are 15.24 cm by 22.86 cm (6 in. by 9 in.) or 20 cm by 17.5 cm (8 in. by 7 in.).
  • At the screening point, take your plastic bag out of your carry-on and place it in one of the provided trays. 
  • Drink or discard any beverages in containers over 100 ml before pre-board security screening.
The following are allowed in your carry-on without a bag and in containers over 100 ml:
  • If traveling with an infant under two years of age (0-24 months), baby food, milk, formula, water and juice in Small containers and reasonable amounts for your itinerary.
  • Prescription and essential non-prescription medicines.
Please Note: These items must be declared at security screening. All such items must be removed from carry-on baggage and placed directly into a bin at the entrance of the checkpoint, as additional screening may be required.
