Passengers at Whitehorse airport to begin using separate baggage drop-off

The Government of Yukon is working with the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority to upgrade the baggage handling system at Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport. During construction, passengers will be required to bring their baggage through the terminal to a separate baggage drop-off after check-in. This temporary system will be in place starting September 15, 2020, until the end of February 2021 at which time passengers can return to checking their bags as usual.

Passengers are advised to arrive at the airport earlier than normal before a flight to avoid any delays.
