As the owner and operator of the YTZ Passenger Terminal, Nieuport is proud to be a part of the Safe Travels Program at the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Safe Travels is an operational initiative and awareness campaign designed to help passengers, staff and partners travel through Billy Bishop safely and with confidence. As part of the program, we have implemented significant health and safety measures, including new signage, increased sanitation, seat capacity reductions, plexi-glass barriers, and temperature screening in our terminal.

As always, we continue to monitor and assess the ever changing impacts of COVID-19 and are working with airport partners to ensure ongoing measures are implemented and maintained as required by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) and Transport Canada (TC).
UPDATE: Porter Airlines has extended their temporarily suspended flight operations until February 11, 2021.
Air Canada/Jazz Aviation has extended their suspension of all flight operations from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport until February 1, 2021 (tentative). In light of developments stemming from COVID-19 and suspended airline operations, both the Trans border and Domestic passenger lounges have now temporarily suspended operations until further notice.
Please note that the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport shuttle bus service provided by Nieuport continues suspended operations. Shuttle bus service between the Royal York Hotel and BBTCA will return with upgraded health and safety measures once regular flight operations resume.
