Airside airport tours

Do you ever wonder where your baggage goes after check in? Or how many different machines are used to clear snow from the runway? Or how we control wildlife at the airport?

Toronto Pearson’s Airside Tours provides a unique look at what it takes to keep our airport running every day. Learn about the history of the airport, the economic impact, its operations and how we are giving back to local communities through our investment program, the Propeller Project.

Sign up for 2020 tours

We are pleased to note that we will again be offering tours in 2020. Registration, which will take place between May and October, will not be available until early April. Please check back for updates. For more information, call our Tour Desk at (416) 776-TOUR (8687) for help.

Individual tours

Each tour has a limited number of seats and they fill up quickly. So, if the date you want is full, please put your name on the waiting list and you will receive an email if an opening comes up.

Please make sure to read the eligibility requirements below, as those who do not meet the requirements will be refused boarding our bus.

Eligibility requirements

To sign up and attend a tour, participants must:

  • Be at least 10 years old
  • Be accompanied by a parent or guardian if he/she is between the ages of 10 and 16
  • Bring a valid government-issued photo ID – only a non-expired passport, driver’s license, nexus card, permanent resident card or Ontario photo health card will be accepted

You will receive an email at least one week before the tour to re-confirm your attendance. You must respond to that email or your seat will be given up to someone else on the waiting list.
