Airport Facts

Toronto/City Centre Airport, (ICAO CYTZ, IATA YTZ), in Toronto, Ontario, is a regional airport located on the Toronto Islands.

Opened in 1939 as the Port George VI Airfield, it became generally known as the Island Airport. At opening it was intended to be Toronto's principal airport; a secondary airport was built in Malton (now part of Mississauga) for use in case of inclement weather. However, these roles quickly became reversed, and the Malton Airport became the main airport, a role in which it continues today as Toronto Pearson International Airport. In 1994, the name was officially changed to Toronto City Centre Airport.

The original 1939 wooden frame terminal building is still present and used although not as a commercial passenger terminal. The only major change to the structure was a change to sloping glass in the control tower to facilitate night operations.
