    The Union Pearson Express opened in 2015, and it's a great way to get to/from the airport, which is a bit far out. You can get on at Union Station. Train is comfortable and lets you bypass traffic.

    In Terminal 1? The cheapest spot for food and drinks is waaay out at F88. If you've got time, the Canadian Bagel co. will make you an awesome breakfast sandwich and a cocktail.

    Immigration/border control is now a breeze - you can clear it using machines, without ever talking to a human thanks to the Primary Inspection Kiosks the CBSA started installing from March 2017

    Good airport with free WiFi, Tim Horton's and plenty of charging stations and iPads by the gates. Only downside is lack of carts past security checkpoint, so travel light.

    If you want to buy maple syrup to bring back home, there’s a store close to check-in zone two that’s a little cheaper than inside in the duty free, unless you want a huge pack. Go in duty for packs.

    When at a gate waiting for a flight, be sure to sit at one of the chairs with a power receptacle. Great access to charge your mobile devices while you wait for boarding.

    Clean, modern, and comfortable. Love the onsite rental car center. The walk to customs feels like it's a mile long, but we can't have everything.

    The walk to gates F84 through F99 can be quite the trek. On top of that, there is really only one place to grab food that doesn’t come from the convenience shop, The Great Canadian Bagel.

    The new transborder process means you can't just walk through with your Global Entry slip. You are required to speak to an agent to be cleared. It has slowed down the process quite a bit!

    Extremely clean airport with free wifi. Looking for a VIP lounge? I would suggest Googling the lounge you're looking for on your phone. Most staff are unaware of which lounge is which. 👌

    Flying to the US? Make sure to get to the airport comfortably more than an hour ahead of departure time as you will not be able to check in to your flight once the 1 hour mark arrives

    Well designed &very organized from the point of dropping the rental car to point of dropping the luggage.the space of the elevator is so wide carrying too many people.

    If you're tight on time for a connection, skip the long line at passport control and go down the middle. From there, follow all purple signs and lines on the ground to get you to your connection

    While most North American airlines treat us like cattle, the actual airport operations are pretty smooth. Free carts, water refill stations, and lots of seating and outlets when you need it.

    A pretty nice airport. Free WiFi and exceptional service from the airport staff. Toronto Pearson International Airport is easily the best airport I've ever been privileged to go to!

    The international terminal upgrades are commencing nicely. Not sure the food kiosks are still a good thing or not. High top tables and such seats are uncomfortable. It’s a clean well oiled airport!

    In customs there’s a separate line for US & green card holders that’s sort of hidden past the long lines of other travelers. Worth asking for it after security check

    Come early if you’re headed into the US, and if you want coffee, there are Tim Hortons in the deeper gates, everyone crowds at the first Timmy’s they see

    Large airport and very nice. Air Canada's gate staff and check in process is disorganized. Attendants are pretty good but no one seems to have any answers. They just kick the can down the road.

    For all those people that park on the side of the road or endlessly drive in a circle waiting to pick up in arrivals - just follow the signs for CELL PHONE PARKING. It is free parking while you wait.

    This has to be one of the best int'l terminals that I've ever visited. Clean Customs, food choices, free Wi-Fi, the top it off with a fitness center.

    Airport Staff smoking cigarets and throwing it on the ground is disgusting! Recycling beans are just fake-garbage goes into one bag inside! 😡

    The American Airlines Admirals Club is a more immediate right after security than you might think. The entrance is almost IN security.

    If you travel to the US regularly, grab a bunch of extra declaration forms, and save time on your next trip by filling one out at home beforehand.

    Be sure to have the right money for the shuttle bus to the metro or they won't let you on. I know, easier said than done when you've only just arrived in the country!

    Nexus card holders will breeze through security, both incoming and departing. Be sure to have it out and handy for the CBP agent at the end, else they'll get annoyed and may see it as a violation.

    Booster juice is really good in t1. And reasonable. Good for filling the stomach without having to get a meal, just add protein.

    The continental breakfast is nice and reasonably priced. There was no loss of luggage and the flight was quite relaxing and peaceful with no complaints.

    Awesome: At the gate each passenger can use an iPad and order food from it. But food consumption is not obligatory.

    If you are in terminal one and have some time to kill before your flight, stop at Apropos for some snacks and charge your electronics. They have an ipad and charging station at every seat.

    Super boring airport. Very clean though which is always a plus. No Ubers at arrivals so take the Union-Pearson train to the first stop (about $5) and get an uber from there.

    If you flight gets canceled, return your duty free bottles to the Duty Free Shop (it's open all night) otherwise with your bags already checked you will be donating them to security .

    Plenty of food and shops once through security. Security line ups are hit or miss but the bag drop off and check in can sometimes be crazy so definitely leave early.
  • Francisca V.
    Even if they have Internet is not very easy to get the signal when you are outside immigration... Nice airport though!!!! Easy to get into the city (Rocket 192 leave you at Kipling subway station)

    If you have NEXUS or Global Entry, just follow the signs. Some people may direct you the wrong way. Follow the signs.

    Terminal 1, Playstation VR set near the F63-ish gates. You get to play cool ps4 games a lot of time if it's not very busy!
