Toronto City (Billy Bishop) Airport Mini Guide
Why Should I use City Instead of Pearson?
Pearson is fourteen miles away whilst City is right where it says it is, in the city. The convenience makes it well worth the while if the flight schedule ties in with your travel plans. You could even get away without hiring a car if all you want to do is spend time in the city but most people choose to collect a rental car there so they can avoid relying on public transport.
How do I get to Toronto City Airport?
All flights to the airport are either domestic or from a handful of US destinations including Boston
and New York
. If you’re flying in from overseas it’s still worth using Pearson but if you’re travelling around the US or Canada, using City Airport makes more sense.
What’s the Airport Like?
There are two terminals, one exclusively for the use of Porter Airlines, the other for Air Canada Express and potentially for the airlines that are expected to adopt City Airport in the near future. The facilities are good but are more akin to those of a regional airport rather than a city one and whilst you’ll find a selection of shops and places to eat, don’t rely on having a wide choice. You’ve also got the expected selection of currency exchanges, post office, airport security and car hire desks, all easily located in the terminal buildings.
