Doors Open Toronto - Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport
Eighty years have passed since Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport welcomed its first commercial flight in 1939. Since then, Billy Bishop Airport, owned and operated by Ports Toronto, has established itself as a world-class airport, providing 2.8 million passengers each year with convenient access into and out of Canada's largest city.
Throughout its history, Billy Bishop Airport has served as an important commercial aviation centre, a training ground for both the Royal Canadian and Royal Norwegian Air Forces during World War II, a hub for General Aviation and life-saving emergency Medevac services, and as a key driver of Toronto's economy.
