    Summer Travel Update


    It’s a busy summer travel season across the region’s highways, airports and hotels. This summer, Toronto Pearson International Airport is preparing for an average of an additional 10,000 passengers per day compared to the summer of 2015, and we’re working closely with the airlines, service providers, and agencies to keep things running smoothly. Passengers can better prepare for a smooth airport journey by:

    • Arriving at least two hours before a domestic flight, and three hours before an international flight.
    • Confirming flight information before leaving for the airport. Visit your airline’s website or torontopearson.com/flights for up-to-the minute information.
    • Reserving parking in advance to guarantee a spot and to take advantage of promotional offers.
    • Checking in with your airline online from home or on your mobile device, to save time.
    • Confirming you have the necessary travel documents well in advance, and have them in hand when moving through check in, security screening and customs processes.
    • Checking your airline’s baggage policies in advance. A full list of airlines operating at Toronto Pearson is available on our Airline page.
    • Packing smart and “dressing for success” in a way that allows you to get through security smoothly. CATSA, the agency responsible for security screening at Toronto Pearson and all Canadian airports, has comprehensive information and tips on their website: catsa.gc.ca/whatcanIbring.
