Airports Canada

What You Should know About Canadian Airports

Security regulations put in place by Transport Canada on December 26 remain in place at Canadian airports until further notice. These regulations are in response to the alleged terrorist incident on Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit.

Passengers travelling to the United States are reminded that they are not permitted to bring carry-on luggage into the cabin of the aircraft, with some exceptions.

Some of the exceptions are:
• Small purses
• Cameras
• Coats
• Medications
• Items for the care of small children
• Laptop computers
• Canes/walkers

Passengers travelling to the United States are still encouraged to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to their departure time.

Transport Canada recently announced that further steps will be taken in the process of reinforcing security in place at Canadian airports. Full body scanners will be placed in some airports over the next few months which will assist in streamlining the more stringent security measures that have been put in place recently.

Ottawa Airport - The Ottawa Airport plays an essential role in the economic growth of the National Capital Region, servicing the needs of millions of travellers each year.

Pearson International Airport Toronto - The GTAA assumed management, operation, and maintenance of Toronto Pearson International Airport from Transport Canada on December 2, 1996.

It’s never too early to make a great first impression. International visitors arriving at Toronto Pearson are getting a warm welcome and a sneak peak at Ontario’s great tourism experiences almost as soon as they step foot on Canadian soil.

With the launch of the Welcome to Canada initiative at Canada’s busiest airport, more than 26,000 international passengers a day will enjoy images of Ontario’s travel gems as well as inspirational Olympic messaging to support awareness of the 2010 Games.

The Welcome to Canada program is a partnership between the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and provincial marketing organizations. The Toronto Pearson activation was completed in partnership with the Ontario government and the GTAA.

“The GTAA is pleased that the Welcome to Canada program is in place at Toronto Pearson and will serve as a greeting to the more than nine million international passengers that travel through the airport each year,” said Lloyd McCoomb, President and CEO of the GTAA. “It’s exciting that passengers arriving in Toronto will be welcomed by these images that will inspire them to discover our great province and all that it has to offer.”

Earlier this year, the program was officially launched at Ottawa MacDonald-Cartier International Airport and will soon find its way into other major Canadian airports and BC’s busiest land border crossings. 

Montréal-Trudeau - Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) is responsible for the management, operation, and development of Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (formerly Montréal–Dorval International Airport) and Montréal–Mirabel International Airport under the terms of a 60-year lease signed with Transport Canada in 1992. The Corporation employs a total of some 600 persons at both airports and at head office.

Edmonton International Airport - Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is conveniently situated adjacent to the major highway linking Edmonton and Calgary; near the Yellowhead TransCanada Highway which connects Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Vancouver; and near Via Rail's Transcontinental "Canadian" route. Edmonton International Airport is Canada's most northerly 24-hour international airport. Edmonton International Airport is the fifth busiest airport in Canada in terms of passengers. In 2006, 5.2 million passengers used the airport.

Calgary International Airport - The Calgary Airport Authority is a not-for-profit, non-share capital corporation, incorporated under the Province of Alberta’s Regional Airports Authorities Act. Since 1992, it has been responsible for the operation, management and development of Calgary International Airport, and subsequently Springbank Airport, under long-term lease from the Government of Canada.

Vancouver International Airport - YVR is Canada's second busiest airport, with some 16.9 million passengers (including same plane transit), approximately 222,900 tonnes of cargo and 270,000 take-offs and landings in 2006.

Springbank Airport - Located in the Municipal District of Rocky View west of the City of Calgary, it is the closest certified aerodrome to Banff National Park. Springbank provides a wide range of commercial and private aircraft services.

Windsor Airport - The New Windsor Airport (YQG) is the Windsor-Detroit Hassle-Free Alternative airport, located in Canada's largest catchment market of over 5 million people within 65 km (40 miles). Windsor Airport recently extended its' main runway to 9000 feet, which provides significant opportunities for airlines to capitalize on a large catchment market from the convenience of this uncongested airport. Currently the airport offers daily scheduled passenger service by Air Canada Jazz to Toronto's Lester B. Pearson with connections to virtually anywhere, as well Westjet offers 3 flights per week direct to Calgary with connections to anywhere in Western Canada. The Windsor Airport also supports SkyService charters that operate in the winter months to several sunshine destinations.

Choose from major air carriers and tour operators, offering frequent flights to Canadian, American and Caribbean destinations. Save money with competitive low-cost air fares and cheaper parking. And save stress with fast lines, short walks, quicker take-offs and a fun, friendly atmosphere.
