The world’s only airport with dedicated pedestrian and bicycle access has again been named one of the best airports in the world. Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport was judged the seventh best airport overall in North America and the seventh best in the world in the category for airports serving less than five million passengers annually by passenger surveys compiled by the SkyTrax World Airport Awards. “As passengers, airlines and airports collectively adapt to the new realities of air travel in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is incredibly gratifying to once again be named as one of the world’s best by the Skytrax World Airport Awards,” said Geoffrey Wilson, CEO of PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Airport.
Among the 39 categories covered by the survey is ease of access to the terminal and Billy Bishop has an underwater pedestrian and bicycle tunnel that connects the island airport to the very heart of downtown Toronto. It’s the latest in a series of awards for the facility in recent years. It was named one of the top airports globally and in North America by Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Service Quality Awards and has also been ranked as the fourth Best International Airport by Condé Nast Traveler. It has also ranked in the top ten on Private Fly’s list for Most Scenic Airport Approaches in the world for five consecutive years.
