How to Find Heli Tours on the Airport
You can choose to take the pedestrian tunnel to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport or the 90-second ferry ride that runs every 15 minutes across Toronto’s inner harbour.
1. Take the Tunnel
The entrance to the tunnel is located inside the mainland pavilion directly to the east of the airport’s ferry terminal. Six elevators are available to take you down the 100 feet to the tunnel level, which features four moving walkways for your added convenience.
At the south end of the tunnel, you can choose to go up to the check-in area using one of the longest escalator systems in Canada, one of two elevators or a staircase of 153 steps to get to the top.
At the top of the escalators, you will see a replica hanging from the ceiling of the plane Billy Bishop flew during the 1st World War. That is the ground level.
2. Take the Ferry
The ferry ride to and from Billy Bishop Airport is one of the shortest in the world at just 121 metres. The 90-second trip will have you where you need to be in no time and if you’re standing on the pedestrian deck you can enjoy a unique view of downtown Toronto. The ferry departs from the foot of Bathurst Street.
The ferry is free for pedestrians and $11 for vehicles (return trip).
If you are a pedestrian, when you exit the ferry you will head towards the Departures area of the terminal which is on the second floor. You will need to proceed downstairs to the main floor.
