Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport Celebrates 80 Years of Rich History as it Reaches Milestone Anniversary

This weekend marked 80 years since the first commercial passenger flight landed at Toronto’s City Airport in September 1939. Passengers and partners alike gathered at Billy Bishop Airport to reminisce and celebrate 80 years of rich history, hard work and success on the occasion of this milestone anniversary.
 
On September 8, 1939, a charter flight carrying famed trumpet player and Conductor Tommy Dorsey and his swing-band arrived in Toronto for a two-day engagement at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). Since then, what is now known as Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), has established itself as a world-class airport connecting more than 2.8 million passengers annually directly into the heart of downtown Toronto and beyond.
