TORONTO PEARSON WELCOMED ITS 1 MILLIONTH PASSENGER OF THE YEAR

TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Just two weeks into 2011, Toronto Pearson has welcomed its one millionth passenger of the year on January 13. 

Representatives from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and Air Canada were on hand to congratulate a surprised Gary MacAskill of Toronto on being the millionth passenger to pass through Toronto Pearson's doors. 

To mark this milestone event, Keith Dias, Manager of Passenger Services with Air Canada presented Mr. MacAskill with two round-trip passes for Air Canada flights anywhere in North America.

"Welcoming our one millionth passenger so early in the year shows how busy Toronto Pearson is," said Toby Lennox, Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Communications for the GTAA.  "We are very pleased to be able to celebrate this milestone event with Mr. MacAskill and we look forward to continuing to serve and delight our passengers throughout the rest of this year."

Mr. MacAskill was at the airport this morning to board a flight to New Brunswick.  He is a seasoned traveller, a frequent user of Toronto Pearson's facilities and was very pleased to be named Toronto Pearson's one millionth passenger of 2011.

The GTAA is the non-share, not for profit authority that operates Toronto Pearson. All revenue generated by the GTAA is reinvested back into the airport. In 2009, 30.4 million passengers travelled through Toronto Pearson.
