Taipei, Nov. 22 (CNA) The In-Town Check-In service currently provided to passengers of China Airlines and EVA Air in conjunction with Taipei Main Station Airport MRT line has been suspended for passengers flying to Canada, Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Co. said on Wednesday.

The suspension was introduced after Canadian civil aviation authorities sent personnel to Taiwan's Civil Aeronautics Administration to learn more about the advanced check-in procedures being followed, according to the company.

During the review, the Canadian inspectors raised concerns about security measures in place at the do-it-yourself check-in and luggage check-in counter at Taipei station, in the center of Taipei City, the company added.

As a result, a decision was made to suspend the luggage check-in service for passengers bound for Canada, starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, the company said, noting that the measure would impact fewer than 10 passengers a day.
