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 2016, Pearson Airport served 44,335,198 passengers, making it Canada's busiest airport. Pearson is by far the busiest of Toronto's two main airports, the other being Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), conveniently located downtown.

 Other Items of Interest at Toronto Pearson Airport

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.
