Canadian air authority
extends security contract
G4S, the world’s leading security company, has won a five-year contract extension valued at CAD$510 million to provide pre-board, hold-baggage and non-passenger screening services for the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).
The renewal of the Airport Screening Services Agreement (ASSA) contract will extend G4S services in the Pacific Region of Canada (British Columbia and the Yukon) until March 2022. G4S has held this contract since November 1, 2011.
CATSA conducted a thorough evaluation assessment of G4S’s performance over the initial term of the contract and concluded that G4S delivered on its contract commitments and met CATSA’s expectations.
John Kenning, CEO of G4S North America said; “G4S is delighted that CATSA has chosen to renew its contract with G4S. We will continue to provide high quality service that promotes an efficient screening process and a positive passenger experience. At the same time we will work with CATSA to continually innovate.”
G4S is proud to partner with CATSA to secure critical elements of the air transportation system at twenty-one airports in the Pacific Region, including Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Airports in the Pacific Region of Canada are experiencing an increasing numbers of traveling passengers with the addition of major flight services and the expansion of existing routes to Australia and China. YVR welcomed a record 20.3 million passengers in 2015, including arriving, departing and connecting travellers, and predicts reaching 25 million passengers by 2020. G4S provides pre-board, hold-baggage and non-passenger screening.
