Located on Toronto Islands, Billy Bishop Airport is Canada’s ninth busiest airport and welcomes more than two million business and leisure travellers each year. Skytrax also recognized Billy Bishop Airport as one of the world’s best small airports in 2013.

A ferry runs from the foot of Bathurst Street every 15 minutes, connecting travellers to the airport terminal. We are building a state-of-the-art pedestrian tunnel, scheduled to open in Winter 2014/2015, which will make getting to Billy Bishop Airport even quicker and easier. See the dedicated tunnel section
