TORONTO AIRPORT - TORONTO PEARSON AIRPORT

Toronto Pearson AirportToronto Airport – Covering 1810 hectares of land and servicing over 300 destinations worldwide, Lester B. Pearson International Airport is Canada’s busiest airport, with thousands of business, personal and cargo passengers passing through every day. It is passenger friendly, functional, and visually stunning. Pearson Airport is located in northeaster Mississauga, just outside of the City of Toronto, although only 25 kms from the central business district of Toronto.

Surrounded by nine major highways, Pearson Airport is easy to get to from downtown Toronto. There are also airport limousine services, and various modes of public transportation. There is no shortage of amenities either, as Pearson's 3 main terminals are fully stocked with car rental companies, restaurants, shopping and other services. There is a 500 room hotel adjacent to Terminal 3, for easier access to those late night or early morning flights.

Driving to Pearson Airport is worry free and direct. There are many highway routes you can take, including the 409 and 427, which provide direct access. Directions are also well posted from the Highways 400, 401, 403, 407, 410 and the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way). Once inside the airport grounds, be sure to follow directions to your terminal. Pearson is a large and busy airport and can be confusing if you are not careful. Routes to Terminal 1 are identified by yellow coloured signs, routes to Terminal 2 are identified by red coloured signs and routes to Terminal 3 are identified by silver coloured signs.

Shuttle Buses are available from many different locations within the city. Many of the major hotels have reasonably priced shuttle buses to and from the airport throughout the day. You can check the Toronto Transit Commission schedules at www.ttc.ca. Alternately, check out the Pacific Western Airport Express at www.torontoairportexpress.com. They provide wheelchair accessible buses on a 24 hour schedule to several locations across downtown Toronto. The GO Transit system is also a handy resource for getting to the airport and surrounding cities. You can reach them at www.gotransit.com.

If you want to take a Taxi into the city, it will cost around $40.
