March 27, 2020 - Press Releases

In our effort to provide stakeholders with information about the response to COVID-19 at Toronto Pearson we are reaching with a few updates for you. 
 
On Friday, March 20, the Globe and Mail published an article that describes Toronto Pearson’s role and preparedness in responding to COIVD-19 and bringing Canadians home.
 
At Toronto Pearson, we are coming together—government agency employees, airlines, cleaning staff, and partners in first response—with a shared goal of caring for our passengers.

Take a look at an example of how we are cleaning the Terminal Link Train:

 
Additionally, the airport and its workforce are continuing to move essential medical products, food and other goods vital to supporting our community’s health, wellbeing and recovery. Click on the link below to read more about a special cargo delivery of lifesaving medical supplies courtesy of Alibaba Group and the Jack Ma Foundation as a prime example of Toronto Pearson’s role in keeping Canada’s supply chain moving.

Keeping Canada’s supply chain moving
As a critical link in Canada’s supply chain, Toronto Pearson handles 45 per cent of Canada’s air cargo.  Canada’s largest airport is well positioned to welcome more freight aircraft at a time where passenger traffic is limited due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Toronto Pearson is already taking steps to refocus operations to support the movement of critical goods, preserve jobs and support community needs. 
 
This means making sure lifesaving medicine continues to reach the critically ill; this means acting as a channel to keep medical equipment moving at a time of great need; and this means ensuring Canada’s food supply remains in surplus.
 
Toronto Pearson is committed to working with our airline partners and business community to support this activity.
