TORONTO — Sunwing Airlines is on the move, but it won’t be heading very far. It was just announced that the airline’s flights and operations will be moving from Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 on the morning of May 1, 2016.
The move is expected to offer passengers “an even more enjoyable start to their vacation” as they will be able to take advantage of a host of new facilities and family-friendly services prior to takeoff. Smaller than Terminal 1, there is less walking required for passengers departing from Terminal 3, making airport processes and operations even easier. This is particularly good news for seniors and families with young children.
In addition, from June 2016 onwards, the current Terminal 3 Enhancement Project will see several changes that include an extensive duty free section, a wide range of leading coffee shops, newsstand and convenience stores, fast-food outlets as well as sit-down restaurants. Passengers will also be able to take advantage of banking services, free Wi-Fi and a health product kiosk.
Terminal 3 also features an easy-to-navigate on-site parking garage with spaces for 3,400 vehicles. Moreover, the terminal is connected to the Terminal Link train in Terminal 1, allowing passengers to access the Union-Pearson Express train downtown as well as connecting lines to Mississauga Transit, Brampton Transit and Go Transit. The TTC Airport Rocket also stops frequently at Terminal 3 and provides an express bus to Kipling Subway Station.
“This is an exciting time for Sunwing Airlines to find a new home within Terminal 3. Considering the expansive upgrades and ease of access granted by the Terminal 3 Enhancement Project, we are confident that this transition will prove to be a convenient choice of our passengers,” said Mark Williams, President of Sunwing Airlines.
