Around Toronto Pearson Airport

Toronto Pearson International Airport – Mississauga

Welcome To Toronto!

Well, not actually. The airport is located in Missisauga, the city directly to Toronto’s west. This will. be the main gateway into the country, regardless of where are you coming from. There are 3 terminals, each hosting different airlines. If someone is waiting for you, make sure that you let them who which gate you will be arriving at. They will park at the arrivals section, which is quite long and potentially confusing.

After your host parks, ask them to note the number beside where they parked. The security may ask you to turn off your car. However, if it is cold, they will make an exception.
YYZ is the main hub for Air Canada, who flies all over the world. Air Canada has seperate terminal for international and domestic flights, so make sure you know where you are going! Feel free to ask any of the helpful workers, people who are dedicated to ensuring your safety and security. Bonne voyage!
