Toronto Pearson international Airport has reclaimed the title of “Best Airport over 40 Million Passengers in North America” for the sixth time in seven years.

This prestigious recognition comes from Airports Council International (ACI) – World, the leading global airport trade association.

Recent ACI Award

The award is part of ACI World’s renowned Airport Service Quality (ASQ) program. Unlike other surveys, ASQ leverages data directly from passengers who have traversed Toronto Pearson, ensuring the highest level of accuracy.

This scientific approach provides valuable insights for airports worldwide to continuously refine and elevate the passenger experience.

“This award reflects the unwavering dedication of our entire team,” said Deborah Flint, President and CEO of Toronto Pearson.

“We’re committed to enhancing every aspect of the passenger journey, from implementing innovative digital tools for greater control to deploying advanced equipment and revitalizing key assets. “

“The Pearson Standard, launched in 2023, further reinforces this commitment by establishing clear performance benchmarks for all airport partners.”

“The ASQ Awards celebrate not just exceptional customer service but also the dedication and innovation that drives it,” remarked Luis Felipe de Oliveira, Director General of ACI World.

“Congratulations to Toronto Pearson for redefining the airport experience! Your commitment sets a high bar for airports globally.”

This recognition coincides with Toronto Pearson’s return to Forbes’ “Canada’s Best Employers” list in 2024. The airport ranked 210th overall and 9th within the Transportation and Logistics sector.

This latest achievement further highlights their dedication to creating a positive and rewarding workplace environment.
