    Do I exit a secure zone and have to release through security? I am considering purchasing perfume in CR duty free but worried I will lose it reentering security!


    Yes, after you clear customs you will have to go through security. So either buy less than 3.2 oz of perfume and put it in your zip lock bag, or if you have checked bags, put the perfume in your checked baggage before you re-check it after customs.

    Traveling from Houston to Guayaquil, Ecuador with a layover in Bogato, Columbia. Do we go through Customs in Columbia or when we arrive in Ecuador?


    What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?


    Flying United to Bogota. Not worried about return flight - don't get out of Ecuador until we land back in Houston


    What airline are you flying from Botota to Guayaquil? If everything is on the same reservation you do not have to go through Colombian immigration in Bogota.

    Dec 13, 2016
    I just want to thank Marie and let Abbotsford airport knot what a great employee you have in Maria, customer services and security. On mondsy night I arrived from Toronto to find my ca with 4inches of snow. I stared my car, tuned on the heat and cleaned off the ca no knowing that some fords the doors lock after a certain time. Of course my doors locked with everything in it. As I wondered the parking lot the security agent, Maria came My aid. She called bcca, waited with me helped me out and I woud say went beyond her duties. Just want you all to know this is what customer service is all about. Heather MacPherson

    I have a 9 hour layover in Zurich. My Swiss airlines representative told me that if I leave and come back to the airport I don't have to go through security as long as I show them my US Passport and Flight Receipt. Is this true?
