Today is the busiest travel day of the year at Pearson Airport

Dec 21 2017, 3:49 pm

There are several reasons to check your flight status prior to heading to Toronto Pearson Airport on Thursday.

Besides weather advisories in effect, December 21 is traditionally the busiest day for pre-holiday travel, according to The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA). The airport expects over 130,000 passengers travelling through YYZ on their way to vacations and family visits.

Over the holiday season, the GTAA will see nearly 2.7 million passengers travel through Pearson between December 17, 2017 and January 7, 2018.

So be sure to get there early if you are scheduled to fly over the holidays.

The GTAA also suggests saving time in security by packing light and leaving holiday gifts unwrapped in carry-on luggage, as all packages will be subject to inspection.

And if you get there early, the airport has holiday activities to keep you busy.

In Terminal 3, there’s an interactive French Alps-inspired lodge warms up Domestic- and International-departing passengers with beverage samples, comfortable lodge seating, and a giant snow globe photo station.

For those departing in Terminal 1 International, there’s a station to send a holiday card to a friend or loved one courtesy of CIBC and Toronto Pearson, on December 22 and 23 from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Safe travels, and happy holidays.
