Runway Extension and Commercial Jets at Billy Bishop Toronto

A City Staff report was prepared in 2013 on a Request to Amend the Tripartite Agreement for Billy Bishop Bishop Toronto City Airport by Porter Airlines to have an exemption to its commercial jet ban and approval for a 200-metre runway extension at each end of the main runway.  The item was deferred to a later Executive Committee meeting in 2014.

OUR POSITION:  That City Council should provide support for BBTCA runway expansion and commercial jets provided that outstanding requirements are met to the City’s satisfaction.
