It has taken 75 years, but what is now Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport has finally acquired a pedestrian tunnel to the mainland.
“This is a highly anticipated day for our passengers and team members,” said Robert Deluce, President and CEO of Porter Airlines opening the tunnel. “The airport is now even more convenient for everyone who uses it. Its already strong contribution to economic development and tourism will continue as it becomes increasingly successful.”
This improved infrastructure also supports the airport’s growing popularity with 2.4m annual users. The tunnel is free to use and includes a combination of elevators, escalators and moving sidewalks to move people end-to-end within six minutes.
In many ways the airport is similar to London City and Belfast City in the UK, but it does compete directly with Toronto Pearson International Airport about 18 miles further west out of the city. Pearson International recently inaugurated a stopping train service from downtown Toronto (see BTN 29 June).
Porter Airlines currently offers flights to Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Moncton, Halifax, St. John’s, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins, North Bay, Windsor, New York (Newark), Chicago (Midway), Boston, Washington (Dulles), Pittsburgh and has seasonal services to Mt Tremblant, Que, Myrtle Beach, SC, Charleston, SC, and Burlington, VT. www.flyporter.com
