List of airports in the Greater Toronto Area

List of airports in the Greater Toronto Area

The following active airports serve the Greater Toronto Area:

* Toronto Pearson International Airport (CYYZ)
* Toronto City Centre Airport (CYTZ)
* Toronto/Buttonville Municipal Airport (CYKZ)
* Toronto/Markham Airport (CNU8)
* Toronto/Downsview Airport (CYZD)
* Oshawa Airport (CYOO)
* Brampton Airport (CNC3)
* Burlington Airpark (CZBA)
* Hamilton/John C. Munro International Airport (CYHM)

Pearson, City Centre and Hamilton have scheduled passenger service, however the vast majority of passenger traffic goes through Toronto's Pearson International Airport, which is Canada's busiest airport and the country's major hub. Hamilton handles some discount flights and charters and acts as an alternate to Pearson. City Centre handles a large amount of air ambulance traffic and recently, the newly launched passenger airline Porter Airlines. Buttonville formerly had scheduled passenger service from Ottawa operated by Bearskin Airlines, but it has been discontinued. Hamilton is popular with charters and discount airlines who want to avoid fees at Pearson, which is among the world's most expensive airports.

Proposed Airports

There is a tentative proposal to develop a new, Pickering Airport northeast of the city, to complement Pearson on the west side of Toronto. The development of this airport would likely result in the closure of the Oshawa, Markham, and Buttonville airports, all of which are located near the proposed site.
