Toronto Pearson International Airport

Where is Toronto Pearson Airport?  

Canada's most populous city sits on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. Toronto anchors the Golden Horseshoe, an area that wraps around the lake to Niagara Falls, home to a quarter of Canada's entire population. Toronto is one the most multicultural cities in the world, giving its culture, cuisine and entertainment a varied and international flair.

Toronto Pearson International Airport (IATA: YYZ, ICAO: CYYZ), officially Lester B. Pearson International Airport, commonly called Toronto Pearson Airport or simply Pearson Airport,  serves Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), in Ontario, Canada. Most of the airport's lands are located in the municipality of Mississauga. The airport is named for Lester Bowles Pearson, the late Canadian Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

In 2012, Pearson Airport served 34,912,456 passengers, making it Canada's busiest airport, and the 35th busiest airport in the world. Pearson is by far the busiest of Toronto's two main airports, the other being Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), conveniently located downtown. 

Toronto Pearson Airport is part of Canada's busiest air corridor between Toronto, Ottawa Airport (YOW) and Montreal Trudeau Airport (YUL), commonly referred to as the Eastern Triangle. 

Toronto's Pearson Airport is one of only two airports in North America with scheduled flights to all 6 inhabited continents; the other is New York's John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK).

More than 65 airlines operate from YYZ, including Aeroflot, Air Canada, Air Transat, Alitalia, American Airlines, American Eagle, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Caribbean Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Delta Air Lines, EgyptAir, El Al, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, Etihad Airways, Finnair, Icelandair, KLM, Lufthansa, Philippine Airlines, Sunwing, Turkish Airlines, United Airlines and WestJet, to name just a few.

Anticipate a bit of chaos when being directed into the Canada Customs and Immigration line-ups. Make your own best guess as to the quickest / most appropriate line (otherwise you could be placed in an extra long line). This is especially true if you have a connecting flight. Do NOT go to the connecting flight line if it is much longer than the regular lines - or you could miss your flight.
