The Toronto Pearson International Airport YYZ has always been one of the most important airports in all of Canada. It has even been ranked as the actual busiest airport in the entire country (even 30th worldwide). Every year, tens of millions of people choose to fly through the Pearson International Airport. And this amount simply grows every year. This monumental number of passengers explains why, on average, well over 1,000 flights take off from the YYZ Airport each and every single day (nearly 1,250 flights, to be more precise). A little over 75 airlines operate at the airport, making these flights possible every day, traveling to 183 destinations in over 60 countries across the globe.,

Domestically, the YYZ Airport serves as a hub for Air Canada, the official Canadian airline and the biggest in the country. The most frequent domestic trips are made primarily to Montreal and Calgary, mounting up to over 300 flights between them each week. Moreover, being the largest airport in the world with United States pre-clearance facilities, it is no surprise that hundreds of flights make their way from Pearson International to all major (and some secondary) cities across the US. Most notably, 135 flights a week are made to La Guardia Airport in New York, and 122 flights every week depart to Chicago O’Hare Airport.
Outside of the Americas, even more flights are made to nearly every continent on Earth from the YYZ Airport. To mention some of the most common destinations flown to, we have Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Cancun, Mexico, and London, UK. Fly anywhere from the Toronto Pearson International Airport!
