Thank you, Deputy.
We've been on the path to modernization of digital services for many years, and that led to the birth of the kiosks that we've seen in the airports. We are already working to transition to eGates with our air industry partners, and we've always had a plan to modernize through digital offerings, through various platforms. ArriveCAN was required for the capture of the public health measures, but the opportunity to provide your advance declaration was something that we already had in the books in terms of the type of work we were going to deliver. We had an opportunity as we worked with the airlines and the airport authorities to pursue that now, to further expedite the passage through the airports.
I can offer that you save about 30% of your passage time using a primary inspection kiosk. You save about 50% of your passage time using an eGate if you've provided your advance declaration. We are reaping the rewards of its use, already achieving about 35% of passenger traffic in the three airports where it's currently offered.
Digital services are one of those elements that the CBSA was pursuing and will continue to pursue across all modes, looking to bring that to our land border where we have significant masses, as well as those who enter Canada through pleasure marine craft and aircraft.
