Client's requirements

Toronto Pearson International Airport served more than 49.5 million passengers in 2018, making it Canada’s largest airport, the most connected international airport in North America and the fifth-most connected airport in the world. It is currently the hub for 465,000 flights a year.

In order to accommodate this growth, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) has embarked on a large-scale capital works programme, investing $6 billion over the next 20 years in its asset portfolio to redevelop and enhance the airport infrastructure.

This includes overhauling key terminal passenger and baggage processors, as well as groundside access infrastructure. Important operations, including the state-of-the-art deicing facilities, will need to be expanded and all the work will be undertaken while managing a live operational environment.

Our contribution

From our experience working on 35 airports around the world, we have pooled our global experience in the development and delivery of major infrastructure programmes and projects to support the GTAA to achieve their objectives. Working with the GTAA as an integrated team, we are providing cost and programme management services to deliver 'best-in class' outcomes.

Making the difference

The number of passengers using the airport is expected to increase to 85 million by 2037, with annual flights rising to 632,000 and cargo increasing from 520,921 tonnes to 958,000 tonnes.

The GTAA hopes that in time, the airport will offer daily non-stop flights to at least 80 percent of the global economy.
