Baggage preparation

To facilitate pre-boarding passenger screening procedures, ADM also reminds travellers that wrapped gifts should be placed in their checked baggage. If this is not possible, gifts placed in carry-on baggage must not be wrapped. For more information on items allowed in aircraft cabins, visit

Returning home

In order to expedite Canadian customs formalities, passengers are asked to ensure they have duly completed their Customs Declaration Form before disembarking from the aircraft and to have their receipts for their purchases made abroad. ADM offers more than 40 self-service kiosks to speed up the process.

Picking up passengers

Before heading to the arrivals-level pickup zone, meeters and greeters are asked to make sure the traveller they are waiting for has indeed arrived.
