transit. The Toronto Island Airport is minutes away from first-class hotels, the Hummingbird Centre, Roy Thomson Hall,
SkyDome, Air Canada Centre the CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, and Harbourfront.

northeastern U.S., and northern Ontario and Quebec with minimal delays or customs hassle. Located on the western section of the
Toronto Islands, the Toronto Island Airport also known as TCCA is just minutes from downtown. The Toronto Island Airport
Ferry leaves regularly from the dock at the foot of Bathurst Street for the short trip to the airport terminals.
The Toronto Island Airport is a bonanza for the Toronto Tourism industry. Flights from Montreal, New York and other major
cities bring businessmen and tourists alike right to the picturesque skyline of downtown Toronto.

through the transportation links of Via Rail, GO Trains, and the subway and bus system.
The TCCA presently accommodates commuter airlines and is popular as a training base for civilian pilots. It ranks yearly
among Canada's busiest airfields. The record for aircraft movements --240,339-- was set in 1967. In recent times the airport
has experienced annual movements of 100,000 to 160,000.
Toronto Island Airport history - As discussions about the commercial importance of air transportation and prospects for a
trans-Canada air route begin to gather momentum, there is mounting pressure on politicians to ensure that Toronto is not left
off the air map.
