  • 8.3 million pieces of luggage: The Pearson team processed 8.3 million pieces of luggage—an increase of over a million pieces of luggage from the same time period in summer 2022
  • 100,000 flights: Pearson Airport had 100,000 flights depart and arrive from its runways—including more commercial, general aviation and cargo planes than in summer 2022.

“We are proud of the successful operations that took place during summer travel season at Toronto Pearson” said Karen Mazurkewich, vice-president of stakeholder relations and communications, GTAA. 

“These numbers not only reflect the volume of passengers that travelled through Canada’s largest, and most connected hub, but speak to  the progress our employees and partners have made since summer 2022.”a

  1. Maybe now they will finally get some decent food concessions at the Pearson Terminals. The absolute worst in the aviation industry. It is not rocket science……….visit Chicago’s Ohare, Denver or Atlanta and see how real food can be offered!!
