Here’s the second portion of the message that I received from Air Canada today…
…enjoy the convenience of Priority Security Clearance when you travel in Executive Class or Executive First from select Canadian, U.S. and international airports.
Priority Security Clearance lanes have recently been introduced in Toronto. The new Pearson Priority – Air Canada Priority Lanes are now available and fully operational. These lanes are designed to expedite your entry to airport security screening zones via a clearly indicated, separate pre-board access lane, allowing you to arrive at your boarding gate more quickly. Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Edmonton also have Priority Security Clearance lanes, with more coming soon to other Canadian airports.
I’ve enjoyed that privilege from time to time flying out of Las Vegas (where it is sorely needed) and it’s a complete blessing.
Instead of spending 20 to 30 minutes shuffling through the security line, you’re through in 5 minutes.
There are a LOT of things that you can do with that extra time, not least of all grab a drink or a bite to eat… the latter of which of course isn’t available on too many airlines nowadays.
