Canadian airport introduces inspection kiosks, declaration mobile app
Travelers at the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport can now scan their travel documents at a primary inspection kiosk, according to an announcement from Winnipeg Airports Authority and the Canada Border Services Agency.
Travelers will also be able to download the CanBorder — eDeclaration mobile app prior to their arrival and prepare their declaration in advance. The app will give them a QR code to scan at one of the 16 primary inspection kiosks.
Upon arrival, travelers scan their documents at the kiosk, have their photo taken and complete an on-screen inspection. When finished, they take their kiosk receipt to a CBSA officer.
Winnipeg Richardson is the ninth Canadian airport to launch primary inspection kiosk technology since March 2017.
