Canadians flying to the U.S. can bring one carry-on bag on board again, starting Wednesday. The loosening of restrictions was announced by Transport Canada. Domestic and overseas flights still permit two carry-on bags.
Canada's ban on carry-ons came after the failed bomb attempt Dec. 25 on a Northwest Airlines flight between Amsterdam and Detroit.
Transport Canada also announced it will install full body scanners at airports and introduce a system for screening passengers based on suspicious behaviour.
Along with a carry-on, passengers can bring on board some personal items such as a purse, laptop, crutches and camera bag.
