Restricted and Prohibited Items

Please note that additional baggage restrictions may be imposed at the airport without prior notice.

Porter values the safety of both our passengers and our crew. That’s why we follow all regulations regarding safety and security. There may be common, everyday items that are restricted because they could pose a potential hazard or threat aboard the aircraft. Before you begin packing for your trip, please take a minute or two to review what you can and can’t take with you on your flight, so you can enjoy a smooth, hassle free journey – from check-in to final boarding call.

All items classified as hazardous materials are forbidden from carriage on Porter Airlines’ flights. These materials include, but are not limited to, flammable gases (liquid and solids), non-flammable gases, compressed gases, explosives, toxic and infectious substances, corrosives, oxidizing agents, radioactive material and magnetized material.

What’s accepted and what’s not?

Please refer to Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) website to see what you can and cannot bring in carry-on and checked baggage.

If you are travelling to or from the United States, visit Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website for the most up-to-date information on prohibited items as well as description of restricted items. Additional information can be found on the FAA website.

NEW: Hoverboards not allowed onboard

While hoverboards are increasingly popular, they are on our no fly list due to increasing concerns about their safety. These two-wheeled, small lithium battery-powered scooters are not accepted in either checked baggage or carry-on baggage due to safety concerns associated with the lithium batteries that power them. Other personal transport vehicles not accepted on Porter Airlines flights include airwheels, balance wheels, electric skateboards and mini-Segways.
