Billy Bishop Airport Voted Among the Most Scenic Airport Landings in the World for Fourth Consecutive Year
TORONTO , April 10, 2018 /CNW/ – Earlier today, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport was voted as having one of the top ten Most Scenic Airport Landings in the world for the fourth consecutive year in a global poll by Private Fly. Billy Bishop Airport ranked seventh and was the only Canadian airport to be recognized alongside airports located in some of the world’s most scenic destinations, including Donegal Airport in the Ireland, Queenstown Airport in New Zealand and Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport in France.
Thousands of travellers from around the world cast votes to determine the 2018 list of the top ten Most Scenic Airport Landings. Located on the Toronto Islands, Billy Bishop Airport welcomes 2.8 million passengers who travel through the airport each year with a stunning view of Toronto’s skyline and harbour as they arrive and depart from the city.
“Billy Bishop Airport has come to be recognized as a world-class gateway to and from Toronto thanks to its unique passenger service that includes complimentary shuttle service, full-service lounges, shorter lines and proximity to downtown,” said Geoffrey Wilson, CEO of PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. “The unparalleled views of the city’s skyline and vibrant harbour is an added perk that has become a favourite among many passengers, and we are thrilled to once again be recognized in Private Fly’s World’s Most Scenic Airport Landings poll.”
This recognition from Private Fly is the latest achievement for Billy Bishop Airport in 2018. In March 2018, the airport was named one of North America’s top regional airports by Skytrax World Airport Awards and in Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Service Quality Awards. In 2017, the airport also ranked sixth in a Top 10 list of global airports by Condé Nast Traveler‘s Readers’ Choice Awards.
