June Busiest Month Ever at Billy Bishop Airport


PortsToronto, owners and operators of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport report that more than 250,000 passengers arrived and departed through the airport in June, marking the busiest month in the airport’s history.

Both Porter Airlines and Air Canada contributed to the high passenger numbers, which were a combination of leisure and business travellers.

“With two award-winning commercial carriers with direct service to more than 20 destinations in Canada and the US, and connections to 80 destinations through partner airline agreements, Billy Bishop Airport is an important gateway for business and leisure travellers alike,” said Gene Cabral, executive vice-president, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and PortsToronto. “Amenities such as the pedestrian tunnel, enhanced shuttle service, full-service lounges, proximity to downtown and shorter lines have established Billy Bishop Airport as the airport of choice among those looking for quick, convenient, comfortable access to such cities as Ottawa, New York, Boston and Montreal. July and August are also shaping up to be busy months and we look forward to welcoming our travellers and helping them along on their journeys.”
