Guidance for Obtaining Reservations in early 2019 for General Aviation / Business Aviation Flights operating to/from Toronto Pearson Airport – YYZ


All Users must complete the Online Coordination (OCS) Application Form as soon as possible to avoid delay on obtaining access to the reservation system. All completed forms must be emailed to aro@gtaa.com. The Airport requires a minimum of 7 days to complete the Application process and will email confirmation of acceptance. An application must be completed prior to obtaining a reservation. Any questions regarding the Application Form must be forwarded to aro@gtaa.com. See application form attached.

The Airport Reservation Office (ARO) processes reservation requests for General Aviation / Business (GA/BA) operations at Toronto Pearson Airport (CYYZ) and allocates reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. The ARO will utilize the On-line Co-ordination Tool (OCS) to make all reservations. Requests for reservations will be accepted beginning 72 hours prior to the proposed time of the operation. YYZ based GA/BA Tenant Carriers may book up to 30 days prior to departure or arrival.

For example, a request for a 1000 reservation on a Thursday will be accepted beginning at 1000 on the previous Monday. A maximum of two reservations (departure and arrival) per transaction can be made for the same aircraft tail number. Otherwise one transaction per aircraft tail.

Reservations can be obtained by going to https://yyzaro.com/ocs/. Reservations will not be available until November 06, 2018 and the application form (step 1) has been completed. When requesting a reservation, the following information is required:

  1. Date and hour (UTC) of proposed operation
  2. Aircraft identifier and flight number or aircraft tail number used for ATC communication
  3. Aircraft type designator (ICAO approved)
  4. Origin/destination airport

All aircraft will be monitored for compliance. Questions on the ARO can be forwarded to aro@gtaa.com or 416-776-3579.
