Toronto Pearson International Airport is an international airport located 22.5 km northwest of Downtown Toronto. It serves Toronto, Ontario, Canada and the Golden Horseshoe. It is the largest and busiest airport in Canada. It has handled 33.4 million passengers and 428,477 aircraft movements in 2011. It is the largest hub for Air Canada and also a major Star Alliance hub airport. The airport is one of eight Canadian airports with facilities for United States border preclearance.

It is an important hub for passenger airlines including Air Canada Express, CanJet, Air Transat, Sunwing Airlines and WestJet, as well as cargo airline FedEx Express. Currently, it is the world’s 23rd busiest airport by international passenger traffic, 38th busiest airport by overall passenger traffic and 18th busiest airport by aircraft movements. It is named in honor of the late Canadian Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Lester Bowles Pearson.

With over 65 airlines providing service to over 155 international destinations worldwide, Toronto Pearson International Airport serves as a global gateway in North America. It is the first North American airport to achieve ISO certification for Environmental Management. The airport is operated by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) as part of Transport Canada's National Airports System. A large number of non-stop domestic flights are operated from Toronto Pearson by several airlines to all major and secondary cities across all provinces of Canada.

There are two operating terminals Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 in Toronto Pearson International Airport. Domestic, international and transborder flights in one facility are handled in Terminal 1, while Terminal 3 was designed to offset traffic from the old Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 3 also has indoor access to the Sheraton Gateway Hotel connected directly to the airport.

Toronto Pearson International Airport is equipped with all the modern facilities including link train, lounges and new parking garage. The new parking garage is constructed at 6B parking lot and has a capacity of 8,500 vehicles.
