Toronto – Toronto Pearson’s “Healthy Airport” commitment is a comprehensive program for the new realities of air travel, protecting passengers and employees, while leading the aviation industry in advancing the future of healthy travel corridors.

Masks are now mandatory inside the airport, while only ticketed passengers and on-duty workers are allowed to enter the terminal buildings. Passengers can be dropped off or picked up at the curb, where family have to say their greetings and goodbyes without entering the airport.

When they enter the airport, Pearson’s passengers will experience the five point Healthy Airport commitment, which includes the highest standards for cleaning and hygiene, clear communications and the introduction of innovative technology advancements, including touchless check-in, a disinfection corridor, facility monitoring for congestion, autonomous floor cleaning machines and air quality monitors. Additionally, the GTAA has partnered with BlueDot to monitor and manage risk from COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. The Canadian technology company’s world-leading insights platform will power the GTAA’s commitment to preparedness and resilience.

“Everyone who works at Toronto Pearson is dedicated to playing a leadership role in fulfilling the health protection measures and adapting quickly to changes and future standards,” said Deborah Flint, President and CEO of the GTAA. “We are dedicated each day to providing the pathway for Canadians who are dreaming of the day they can travel again.”
