Toronto Pearson International Airport New Terminal Development

The Terminal Development Project consists of a single unified terminal complex designed to replace the aging Terminals 1 & 2. Phases 1-4 include an 80-gate, three-sector terminal complex that can expand to a 135-gate terminal complex.

The design is premised on the creation of a balanced development integrating groundside access, terminal processing, and airside activity. The initial stages are configured with four radiating piers extending from a four-level central processor, offering substantial improvements to passenger convenience, operational efficiency, and processing capacity.

Pier F consists of a 300-metre-long, 39,100 sm superstructure and a 44,100 sm hammerhead. Passengers pass through the arrow-shaped lounge/waiting area when embarking or departing international flights. Pier F and Hammerhead F provide an additional 25 gates – two of which are designed to accommodate the new A380 Airbus.
