Flying out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), also known as Toronto Island Airport, is quite unique. To get to this island airport, you'll have to either take a short ferry ride or walk the pedestrian tunnel. You'll want to arrive at least an hour before your flight, with your airline ticket and valid passport. You won't need to obtain a visa to visit New York City.

Unfortunately, you cannot fly direct from YTZ to New York City. However, via Porter Airlines you can fly direct to Newark, New Jersey, which is about 24km from Manhattan. If you want to fly to a New York airport, you will have at least one layover, likely in Boston or Montreal.

New York Airport Options

Since Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in Newark, New Jersey is the only airport to which you can fly direct from YTZ, it likely makes the most sense to fly there. A taxi ride from EWR to Manhattan will cost between $65 and $95, depending on your exact destination. You can also take the AirTrain for around $18, or rent a car if you're willing to brave the New York traffic yourself.

Depending on where you will be staying in New York, LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) might be the better choice, despite the required layover. LGA is best if you will be staying in Long Island or on the east side of Manhattan and JFK is best if you will be staying in borough neighbourhoods like Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights.

What to Expect in New York

There is no time difference between Toronto and New York City, and little climate difference, though Toronto can experience colder winters and more snowfall. However, as one of the USA's most costly cities, there is a significant difference in average prices. New York prices are much higher than Toronto prices, made even worse when the Canadian dollar is low. Be sure to save as much as possible on transportation by using Skyscanner's Price Alert tool.

As one of America's coolest cities, there is no shortage of awesome attractions in New York City. You'll find incredible shopping and heavenly food choices down every street. Don't miss visiting the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, or the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
