Fly with Us Down Memory Lane as Billy Bishop Airport Celebrates 80th Anniversary  

It has been almost 80 years since the first commercial passenger flight landed at Toronto’s City Airport on September 8, 1939, when a charter flight carrying famed trumpet player and Conductor Tommy Dorsey and his swing-band arrived in Toronto for a two-day engagement at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). Since then, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport has established itself as a world-class airport connecting more than 2.8 million passengers annually directly into the heart of downtown Toronto and beyond.
 
As part of 80th anniversary celebrations, PortsToronto communications has curated a special photography exhibit located inside the airport’s mainland and island-side ferry terminals. Showcasing our very own archival collection, this historical retrospective takes travellers and visitors through time to learn more about the airport’s rich history. From the very idea of a Toronto airport in the 1920’s to serving as a training ground for both the Royal Canadian and Royal Norwegian Air Forces during World War II to the airport’s present-day role as an important commercial aviation centre and hub for General Aviation and emergency Medevac services, 80 Years Young tells the fascinating story of Toronto’s City Airport through the lens of time.  
 
This summer, take the scenic ferry ride before or after you visit the airport and fly with us down memory lane to learn more about the important role Billy Bishop Airport plays in serving Canada’s largest city.
