WestJet says its passengers won't be able to use their credit cards at self-serve kiosks at airports across the country anymore.
The Calgary-based airline made the announcement yesterday following a report of credit card fraud at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
Financial institutions have reportedly begun investigating isolated fraud incidents stemming from the use of credit cards to obtain boarding passes from the kiosks.
The credit card portion of the self-serve WestJet kiosks at the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport will also be disabled.
There are 150 self-serve kiosks at Pearson, Canada's busiest airport.
The kiosks are owned by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which manages the airport, but the flow of information to and from airlines is managed by two technology companies.
GTAA official Scott Armstrong says WestJet passengers can still check in at the kiosks with their reservation number or by typing in their last name.
