80 primary inspection kiosks will replace the 43 existing units.

The kiosks are expected to cut the arrival process in half.

The first 36 of 80 units will be ready to use for those passing through YYC on Wednesday.

It’s about to get a whole lot easier for people arriving from an international destination at Calgary airport thanks to the installation of primary inspection kiosks.

80 kiosks will replace the 43 existing units, which is expected to cut the arrival process in half.

“You will no longer have to fill out the paper forms, so now in a very simple, self-serve kind of way, you can just go up to a kiosk and you can fill out more or less the same information and you can get through the customs experience very quickly,” says Michael Hayward, Vice President of Marketing and Guest Experience with the Calgary Airport Authority.

As of Wednesday, the first 36 of 80 units will be ready to use for those passing through YYC’s arrivals, with the remaining units expected to be ready to go by June 4.
