Skift Take

While Canadian officials work to keep their countrymen flying out of domestic airports, the U.S. is offering perks that will keep Canadian travelers’ dollars flowing through its own airports and airlines.

Canadians who have a Nexus card for frequent travellers will be able to jump the queue at 27 U.S. airports participating in the express border-crossing program, when taking domestic flights within the United States.

So Canadians flying from, say, Chicago’s O’Hare airport to New York’s LaGuardia will be able to use an express line to get through airport security faster. The Nexus program is available by signing up through the Canada Border Services Agency.

Passengers in the express queue won’t have to remove their shoes and can keep their laptops in their cases and airplane-safe liquids in their carry-ons. They can also keep their belts on.
