Security Failure: Pax Screened on Tarmac

Security Failure: Pax Screened on Tarmac
Ryan Boyd

Seventeen Air Canada passengers who boarded a plane at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) without being screened by security officers at the airport were taken off the plane on the runway at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) for an impromptu delayed screening by security staff. One passenger said: “I realized that something was wrong as the plane was not moving towards the gate, but had just stopped on the tarmac. It is staggering how officials couldn’t tell who had been screened and who hadn’t.” An Air Canada spokesperson said that Transport Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) demanded the extra screening on landing.

    What is the purpose of screening after the flight. 🙁
    I suppose that they would confiscate liquids as well even it is after the flight and nothing happened.
