Surpassing all expectations, BILLY BISHOP TORONTO CENTRE AIRPORT has racked up a record number of comings and goings in June/2016 – a splendid 250,000.
The Airport serves Air Canada and PorterAir short takeoff and landings with only one runway. It supports 6,500 jobs – with 1,900 of those directly related to airport operations.
Billy Bishop is on an island, connected to the mainland by a brand new tunnel and – if you prefer – the shortest ferry ride in the country. It’s within easy reach of TORONTO’s Financial District and a 10 minute walk to public transit. There’s also a free bus shuttle to downtown T.O. run by PorterAir.
There are flights, several times daily, from Billy Bishop to Montreal, Ottawa, New York City, Pittsburgh, Boston, Thunder Bay, Timmins, Halifax, Quebec City, Chicago, Washington DC and Moncton.
Such a pleasure not to have to go to Pearson. Good thing they stopped the jets, though.
