Walk Way to Island Airport

Walk Way to Island Airport

Soon the travelers flying out of Billy Bishop Airport also known as Toronto Island Airport and Toronto City Airport will experience the new and easy access from the main land to the Island Airport. The walkway tunnel project which started in March 2012 is just around the corner of completion. The tunnel is expected to be operational by end of 2014 or beginning of 2015. The project is being carried out by Toronto Port Authority.

Once operational the pedestrian tunnel will be equipped with four moving sidewalks traveling at 2.3 kilometers per hour. From a bank of six elevators on the mainland side, travelers will descend 100-feet to access the tunnel and travel along the passageway to escalators, which lead to the Airport’s check-in area. The complete journey will take less than six minutes, and will dramatically improve passenger flows.

Billy Bishop airport is a favorite airport for many of the travelers due to its easy access and fight schedule connecting Toronto to major cities of Canada and United States. With this walkway under construction passengers do feel some inconvenience due to the limited access for  Limo/Taxi pickup and drop off at the mainland terminal but when the project is complete the comfort of flying out of Billy Bishop Airport will attract more and more passengers in the coming time.

We would like to thank the Toronto Port Authority for this state of the art project.
