The move by the airline is expected to offer passengers an even more enjoyable start to their vacation as they will be able to take advantage of a host of new facilities and family-friendly services as they set off. Smaller than Terminal 1, there is less walking required for passengers departing from Terminal 3, making airport processes and operations even easier, especially for families with young children or seniors.

In addition, from June 2016 onwards, the current Terminal 3 Enhancement Project will see the terminal begin to transform into the first of its kind in North America; offering an extensive duty free section, a wide range of leading coffee shops, newsstand and convenience stores, fast-food outlets and sit-down restaurants. Passengers will also be able to take advantage of banking services, free Wi-Fi and a health product kiosk.

The move was welcomed by President of Sunwing Airlines, Mark Williams, who commented: “This is an exciting time for Sunwing Airlines to find a new home within Terminal 3. Considering the expansive upgrades and ease of access granted by the Terminal 3 Enhancement Project, we are confident that this transition will prove to be a convenient choice for our passengers.”

Along with enhanced facilities in the terminal, passengers can also reach Terminal 3 easily. There is an easy to navigate on-site parking garage with spaces for 3,400 vehicles. The terminal is also connected to the Terminal Link train in Terminal 1, allowing passengers to access the Union-Pearson Express train downtown as well as connecting lines to Mississauga Transit, Brampton Transit and Go Transit. The TTC Airport Rocket also stops frequently at Terminal 3 and provides an express bus to Kipling Subway Station.


Also, in conjunction with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Sunwing Airlines will roll out a comprehensive plan to inform and assist all passengers during the transition, making the move easier for all passengers.
