Pearson also serves an important role in a domestic capacity, as virtually all of the airline traffic throughout Canada is routed through this location.

Pearson is an airport with equal amounts of friendly local Canadian charm and worldly shopping and amenities. Like Neil Peart of Rush said, "It is always a happy day when YYZ appears on our luggage tags."

What to expect when arriving at Pearson International

One strange thing upon arrival is the apparent lack of a Terminal 2. During the expansion of Terminal 1, what is now known as the Infield Terminal was built to handle the traffic displaced by the construction. Technically, this is Pearson Terminal 2, but now it is more of a spare terminal only used to handle overflow or seasonal traffic. If you are flying with a Star Alliance airline, your flight will arrive or leave from Terminal 1. Terminal 3 handles Oneworld and SkyTeam affiliates and is connected to the Sheraton Hotel.
