    Take the new underground tunnel! Ferry comes every 15 mins but is nice in the summer.

    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

    One of my favorite airports of all time, so smooth and easy you'll feel like a rockstar. Wish more cities had airports like Billy Bishop.

    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?

    Ferry adds a bit of time and inconvenience to the trip despite proximity to downtown. Call an uber instead of being stuck in the taxi line.

    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.

  • Desmond F.

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

    Frozen fuel.. Cancelled flight..

    Air Canada cancels flights if under-booked, always giving a reason as 'due to mechanical issues'. However they assure that next flight will not be cancelled. How would they know?

    Great when it opened, but now has too much passenger traffic to handle comfortably
