    Porter Airlines flies out from YTZ. Arrive early and relax at the lounge before your flight! The airport approach is very scenic, with the Toronto Islands and skyline in the background!

    That view is the best way to arrive in Toronto and the lounge is great. Just be aware that with the smaller planes and smaller airport, weather has a stronger effect and there are frequent delays.

    My favourite airport. Tiny but with a very nice lounge (Porter airlines). Service back and forth to mainland via ferryboat (and bus to Union Station).. The view as you fly in/land is amazing.

    Very convenient for downtown Toronto. You get a great view of the islands and downtown as you land. It's quick to exit as it's so small, although we still had to wait a little while for our luggage.

    It's been a long time since I've last enjoyed flying so much: easy access from downtown via ferry (tunnel soon), quick & friendly check-in, efficient security check, great lounge, free wifi & snacks!

    Great alternative for quick stops in and out of downtown. Really relaxed atmosphere. Free snacks in the waiting area with privacy and comfortable chairs. Best option to or from anywhere East.

    If you're coming to downtown Toronto on business flying via Porter to YTZ is the only way to go. Way closer to downtown... free WiFi, free snacks and drinks, and nice Apple desktops for all to use.

    This airport is great. Great view of downtown, free everything: espresso/latte/cappuccino, soft drinks, delicious cookies, almonds, wifi. A little small but why can't all airports be like this?

    When you come out the tunnel walk along the water past the abandoned grain silos and pick up a city bike $7 for the day and 15 min ride to downtown

    Cozy airport. Have a seat in the lounge if it isn't packed with delayed passengers. Enjoy the little cafe they have with free water & coffee.WiFi is available, and AC Outlets are on the floor.

    Free is NICE! Come with an empty carry on bag and snag all the free cookies, nuts, drinks, coffee beans, cream, sugar! Then re-sell to cover the cost of your flight.

    If only all other airports were like this. Very compact, brisk connections, and a comfortable waiting area with awesome cookies! Bring your laptop or just use one of the free macs!

    My trust issues were challenged by the whole ferry ride aspect but I have to say the waiting area is a cool little design. Free coffee? Free espresso? Free little cookies? I like it.

    A very small but convenient city airport to fly to local Canadian and North American destinations. Security is friendly and polite. Porter lounge provides free snacks and beverages.

    Perhaps the best airport I've ever waited in. Very nice view and all the complimentary snacks & beverages. Not to mention the semi private waiting room.

    One of the easiest and fastest airport experiences ever. The tunnel is so quick. Definitely take the elevators as the escalator is a bit slow.

    Porter is a great airline. Really enjoy the flight and the staff. Friendly, helpful, Canadian, free drinks. What more could you ask for?

    Early morning flights here are very pleasant. Be sure to use their baggies to place your liquids into before going through security to make things faster.

    Porter Airlines lands you smack dab on the Toronto islands and gives you free wifi, snacks, ferry to mainland, and shuttle downtown. Canadians are nice!

    Check out the new boutique just out of baggage claim. They carry the Aesop line found otherwise only at Holt's or Oliver Spencer. Nice stuff.

    If you have NEXUS make your way to the front of the security line w/your card & they will take you. There is often no one staffing the NEXUS line, so this is their fix.

    The tunnel is nice enough, but ride the ferry across the channel if you have the time to spare before your flight. There's even a bar at dockside!

    If you're just arriving we hope you remembered your camera! Toronto's a city with many sights! If you're leaving, we hope you're bringing a camera! You never know what photo opportunities you may see.

    Older ferry guy who greets everyone with a smile and a "have a great day" is one of the best parts of the experience...

    Porter Airlines and a Super Convenient Location were some of the highlights of the trip. Customs was 100x faster than when I returned to Newark.

    For those flying to the US, go to the counter as soon as you get down to the lounge if you Checked-In Online. It will save you from have to get up later for your Passport Verification.

    Check-in and security are really fast, but waiting for the ferry when you're cutting it close is really stressful... get here early.

    Expect to pay a parking fee for any rides picking you up right at the terminal exit. Currently, It was $5 for 30 mins. Otherwise tell your ride to pick you up further or at union (via free shuttle)

    Love Porter, the best way to travel. Hope it will remain the same once it starts sharing it's space with the Jazz - Air Canada riff raff crowd .

    Fly Porter and use Billy Bishop, simple as that. Also when checking in you really only need a hour and a half for checking in. That still gives you plenty of time to use the fancy lounge.

    Air Canada is friendlier here and if weather is bad flight or flights full itinerary changes can be negotiated as its a win/win
