Published on : Saturday, June 30, 2018

Toronto PearsonCanada’s largest airport is preparing to welcome over ten million passengers between Canada Day and Labour Day, an increase of more than 30% compared to the same period five years ago. The summer rush is predicted to bring with it an average of 155,000 passengers per day, climbing even further skyward on high-volume days. Toronto Pearson and its partners—air carriers, Canadian customs, CATSA and more—have taken steps to prepare for this massive influx of passengers and offer tips to help make travel easier.

 

 

“This summer, Toronto Pearson is once again preparing to welcome a growing number of travellers from around the world to Toronto and the region, reflecting the desirability of Canada as a tourism destination for millions of annual visitors,” said Hillary Marshall, Vice President Stakeholder Relations and Communications, Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “We understand how important it is to work with our carriers and government partners to ensure that we have the appropriate resources in place to help more than 10 million travellers flow efficiently through our airport, providing more visitors to local attractions, customers to local businesses and jobs for area residents.”

 

Fridays are typically the busiest travel days of the summer and Toronto Pearson projects that the four Fridays in the month of August will bring the highest daily passenger volumes:

 

 

Toronto Pearson places a high priority on ensuring an efficient and enjoyable airport experience for travellers, and as such continues to make significant investments in services and processes. Baggage infrastructure in both terminals has been enhanced, adding additional capacity for airline baggage handlers to load and unload bags, as well as 24/7 IT support to monitor over 25 kilometers of belts, automated pushers and other machinery. Additional CATSA Plus lines have been installed in Terminal 3, speeding the efficiency of passenger security screening. The CATSA Plus program will be rolled out to all airport checkpoints over the next two years. Toronto Pearson is also offering additional support for passengers with cognitive special needs through the MagnusCards smartphone app. MagnusCards helps to ensure that users can navigate the airport more easily through step-by-step instructional card decks.

 

 

Passengers arriving this summer will also enjoy the sounds of Canadian culture with the return of YYZ Live, Toronto Pearson’s signature entertainment program. Produced in partnership with the City of Toronto, YYZ Live features a summer full of musical entertainment, with 75 performances from a curated list of local artists. YYZ Live performances are free and take place in different locations around the airport at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. For a full schedule of YYZ Live musicians and where they will be playing.
