Toronto Pearson’s top tips for passengers ahead of March Break travel week

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to pass through Toronto Pearson Airport during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, March Break.

During the busiest points of the week, nearly 1,000 flights will take off and land per day.

Toronto Pearson recommends using the following tools:

  • YYZ Express, is an online reservation program that allows travellers to book a spot in the security line ahead of their flight, up to 72 hours in advance. Passengers with reservations are able to breeze through shorter security lines.

  • Mobile Passport Control, is an app introduced by United States Customs and Border Protection that allows travellers to digitally submit their information for a smoother departure experience if they’re travelling to the US.

  • Avoid traffic congestion curbside at the terminals by dropping off passengers at Viscount station.

  • A live wait times dashboard provides travellers with real-time information ahead of arriving at the airport.

  • A peak travel times dashboard shows if you will be passing through the airport during a busy period.

  • Advance Declaration continues to be offered by the Canada Border Services Agency, which lets travellers submit their customs and immigration declaration up to 72 hours in advance of flying into Canada, giving them a faster border experience and saving them time at Pearson. Passengers who complete Advance Declaration will have access to an Express Lane in the customs area.

  • Register online to park your car at Toronto Pearson, which helps to guarantee your spot ahead of time.
