The Toronto Pearson International Airport is the busiest airport in Canada and sees over 31 million passengers over the course of a year with a total of over 400,000 aircraft movements in 2010 alone.

The Airport located right inside of the Greater Toronto Area of Canada. In order to handle all of this traffic, the airport features two terminals, 1 and 3, five runways, 30 taxiways and countless team members.

Toronto is comprised of over 100 different neighborhoods and is a very modern multicultural urban centre that offers a little bit of everything to be able to appease the masses. Since the airport is located inside Canadaís most cosmopolitan centre, it has become a popular destination for tourists.

Anyone traveling to the Toronto Airport has a number of different ways to park before they get their flight. This includes valet care, a value park garage, express parks as well as multiple other car lots that are not covered and are very affordable. Regardless of which one someone chooses, they are then able to enjoy everything that the terminals have to offer.

The terminals have much to keep one busy in between flights. There is art and exhibits throughout the terminals that change periodically around the year. There are also a number of restaurants and food kiosks to handle any pre-flight hunger pangs as well as lounges to just relax. Free WIFI is available throughout the airport and duty free shopping can help pass the time.

The Toronto Pearsonís official name is the Lester B. Pearson international Airport, which it was named in 1984 in honour of the 14th Prime Minister of Canada, who also was a recipient of the Novel Peace Prize. The airport began in 1937 as Malton Airport because of its proximity to Malton. It was created by the Toronto Harbour Commission from a total of nine farmland properties.

It started with a single terminal and then grew to a second one. In the late 1960s, the second terminal was destroyed to make room for the actual Terminal 1 building as a way to keep up with the continuous growth that the airport faced. There was talk for awhile that another airport would be created to help with the congestion, known as the Pickering Airport, however it never actually came to be.

Eventually Terminal 3 was created, which opened in 1991. Since then, both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 are able to keep up with the many flights that come in and out of this busy airport every day, with the greatest volume taking place between 2 pm and 7 pm.

There is a LINK train people mover that is now in place to help people get from Terminals 1 and 3 easily. This opened in July of 2006, featuring two 6-car trains. It reduces the chaos and makes it easy for people to catch their planes regardless of what terminal it is coming out of.
