Construction is underway on a new 150,000-sq.-ft. passenger terminal at Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA).
Phase one of the terminal opens in November and includes passenger facilities, aircraft gates and office space. The full facility, including 10 bridged aircraft gates, U.S. and Canadian customs and two passenger lounges, will be complete by spring, 2010.
Spearheading the new-build is Porter Airlines, which uses TCCA as its Toronto hub and is investing over $45-million in the terminal project.
The new terminal includes a mix of retail, food services, duty-free, car rentals and other services. Standard complimentary Porter amenities, including business centres, lounge-style seating, beverages and WiFi, will be enhanced in the new building.
