Other Flight Options

Would you like to fly in and out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport? This downtown Toronto airport is small, relatively easy in and out, and is very convenient. Two airlines use Billy Bishop, Air Canada and Porter Airlines. Air Canada flies from many international cities. Porter is a smaller airline and flies from several Canadian and a few US cities.


The city of Toronto is serviced by both the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) also known as the Toronto Island Airport)
