Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Toronto Pearson Airport.

What to Expect

  • The Toronto airport has two passengers terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. A short train, called the Terminal Link, shuttles passengers between the two.
  • Some reviewers have warned that the signs can be confusing and difficult to follow here. Be sure to pay close attention or you may get lost.
  • A couple reviewers also warned of long and difficult security lines.
  • On arrival, be prepared for a long walk to the immigration counter. Wear your walking shoes as you are in for a good hike.
  • 24 hour concessions can be found landside
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • There is a nice amount of seating without armrests found throughout the airport, both landside and airside.
  • In particular, we recommend the designated rest zone in Terminal 1, landside on the Departures level.
  • If you decide to sleep, don’t forget earplugs or noise cancelling headphones to help reduce the noise.
  • Stay warm with a blanket.
  • A few free sleep pods are available airside. Unfortunately, we don't know the exact locations.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel connected to Terminal 3 and other nearby hotels that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Showers can be found in both terminals. See Showers in the airport guide below.
  • Economy class passengers can pay to use one of the first class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
