With the summer travel season in full swing, Toronto Pearson International Airport is gearing up for its busiest season yet: on average, the airport will welcome 120,000 passengers per day throughout July and August, representing an additional 10,000 passengers per day over the same time period in 2015. Nearly 150,000 passengers are anticipated to travel through the airport on the busiest days.
With Fridays typically being the busiest day of the week during the summer months, Toronto Pearson projects that it will see its highest volume of passengers on the following days:
“Summer is by far our busiest season of the year at Toronto Pearson, with passengers heading out on summer vacations or flying into the city to enjoy all Toronto has to offer,” said Hillary Marshall, Vice President, Stakeholder Relations and Communications. “As the number of people traveling by air continues to grow in North America, we understand how important it is to work with our government partners to ensure we have the resources we need to allow our passengers to flow through the terminals in an efficient manner that is comparable with other jurisdictions around the world. Air travel is an important economic catalyst in terms of facilitating trade and tourism. We need government to make the necessary investments to support its growth.”
In order to accommodate the increased traffic, Toronto Pearson is working closely with airlines, service providers and government agency partners to coordinate operations to ensure they run as smoothly as possible. A number of measures have been introduced to increase the airport’s efficiency, including streamlining security and customs processing for passengers travelling to the U.S. and adding automated baggage drop kiosks.
To help plan and prepare for this busy time, Toronto Pearson recommends the following tips for passengers, in order to make their trip through the airport as pleasant and smooth as possible:
