The new gates have been equipped with handrails for greater accessibility, additional space for passenger queues, along with roll-up doors to preserve energy within the gates.

PortsToronto CEO Geoffrey Wilson said: “All of the upgrades to the lounges have been intended, designed and implemented with the passenger experience as top priority.”

Formerly known as the Toronto Port Authority, PortsToronto is responsible for the management of the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

During installation of the new gates, PCL Construction delivered 24 temporary gate modules. These were installed in three phases to help improve time efficiencies and avoid any inconvenience to customers, airport ground crews and plane traffic.
