Another year, another top ranking for Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

On Wednesday, PortsToronto announced that YTZ has won a prestigious Skytrax Award.

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport was recently named one of the world’s best airports at the Skytrax World Airport Awards.

Skytrax is an international airport award voted on by nearly 14 million passengers worldwide, and the city airport was ranked the seventh best airport in the world in the under five million passenger category, representing the seventh year YTZ has won a Skytrax award.

“As passengers, airlines and airports collectively adapt to the new realities of air travel in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is incredibly gratifying to once again be named as one of the world’s best by the Skytrax World Airport Awards,” said Geoffrey Wilson, CEO of PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Airport.

“To be recognized for the seventh consecutive year in the passenger-driven Skytrax awards reinforces that Billy Bishop Airport – one of the world’s only walkable, bike-able airports with an award-winning scenic approach – is striking a positive chord with passengers. With international accolades such as these driving us to stay the course and excel despite trying times, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport will carry on its 80-year history of enabling business, facilitating tourism and providing a superior travel experience directly into the heart of Canada’s largest city.”

According to PortsToronto, the 2020 awards are based on millions of airport survey questionnaires completed by more than 100 different nationalities of air travellers, covering 550 airports worldwide.

“In the independent survey, passengers continue to rank Billy Bishop Airport highly across 39 key performance indicators, including fast check-in times, ease of access to the terminal, and the courtesy and efficiency of airport staff,” PortsToronto wrote in a release.

Billy Bishop Airport has also been ranked as the fourth Best International Airport by Condé Nast Traveler and has ranked in the top ten on Private Fly’s list for Most Scenic Airport Approaches in the world for five consecutive years.
