Ongoing innovation

From trialing new solutions to enhancing existing policies and processes, we’re constantly looking at new ways to make your airport experience healthier.

The Government of Canada requires all international travellers to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival. To learn more, visit our testing page.

We've installed UV-C light sterilization units on the handrails of selected escalators and moving walkways to help reduce the spread of potentially harmful microorganisms.

We're trialing new technology that makes elevators touchless, so that you can operate them with your smartphone. Use Bluetooth-enabled elevators by scanning the QR code to download the control app.

We have deployed COVID Safety Alert devices to frontline staff with the aim of helping to ensure that physical distancing guidelines are followed and facilitating contact tracing.

We've installed upgraded MERV-13 filters in our HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system.

Indoor air quality monitoring stations are in place in both Terminals 1 and 3, providing accurate, up-to-date information on each terminal’s air quality and air flow. Moreover, the public can view real-time data at any time by visiting airquality.torontopearson.com.

Six autonomous floor cleaners with UV-C disinfection technology are in operation throughout the terminal to clean and disinfect floor surfaces.

We have partnered with BlueDot to monitor and manage risk from COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. The Toronto-based technology firm’s outbreak risk software safeguards lives by mitigating exposure to infectious diseases that threaten human health, security, and prosperity.

We’ve installed CleanSlateUV units throughout the airport. CleanSlate inactivates 99.995% of SARS-CoV-2—the virus causing COVID-19—sanitizing smartphones and other small electronic devices at no charge. 

We've introduced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machines to our terminals to provide easy access to items such as face masks, hand sanitizer and wipes. The machines are cashless and can be found in six convenient locations pre-security (four in Terminal 1 and two in Terminal 3).

We've installed UV-C light arrays in select air handling units at the airport. Combined with our upgraded air filters, this innovative technology adds a new layer of defense against potentially harmful pathogens.
