Here’s our tips for making your airport experience smooth sailing this summer

During the busiest points of the week, nearly 1,000 flights will take off and land per day. For travellers looking to enhance and take control of their airport experience, Toronto Pearson recommends using the following digital tools:

  • YYZ Express, an online reservation program that allows travellers to book a spot in the security line ahead of their flight, up to 72 hours in advance. Passengers with reservations are able to breeze through shorter security lines.
  • Mobile Passport Control, an app introduced by United States Customs and Border Protection that allows travellers to digitally submit their information for a smoother departures experience if they’re travelling to the US.
  • Avoid traffic congestion curbside at the terminals by dropping off passengers the new Viscount station Kiss and Fly. The station, which is located just outside the airport, is a great connection point by a quick train ride. Drop-off is easy and quick—leading passengers right into Terminal 1 and 3 for free.
  • Our live wait times dashboard provides travellers with real-time information ahead of arriving at the airport. This gives passengers information about what to expect before arriving at the airport.
  • Our peak travel times dashboard shows if you will be passing through the airport during a busy period.
  • Advance Declaration continues to be offered by Canada Border Services Agency, which lets travellers submit their customs and immigration declaration up to 72 hours in advance of flying into Canada, giving them a faster border experience and saving them time at Pearson. Passengers who complete Advance Declaration will have access to an Express Lane in the customs area.
  • Register online to park your car at Toronto Pearson, which helps to guarantee your spot ahead of time.
  • Don’t forget to follow us on X for any major operational updates and Instagram for exciting passenger experiences and promotions.

We’re excited to announce a lineup of vibrant summer activities that will make your journey even more memorable.
