The Air Travellers Security Charge (ATSC) is a flat fee levied on air travellers at the time of ticket purchase and funds airport security screening by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).

Budget 2023 proposes to increase the ATSC by 32.85 percent, effective May 1, 2024. The charges would increase as follows: $9.94 for a one-way domestic flight (from $7.48), $19.87 for a round trip domestic flight (from $14.96), $16.89 for a transborder flight (from $12.71), and $34.42 for an international flight (from $25.91).
