Important Milestone For Billy Bishop Airport

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (Billy Bishop Airport) officially re-opened runway 06-24 following an extensive rehabilitation of the runway earlier this summer. Billy Bishop Airport’s Executive Vice-President Gene Cabral was joined by representatives from Porter Airlines, Greater Toronto Airways, Canadian Owners and Pilots Association (COPA), Toronto Island Pilot’s Association (TIPA), WSP Canada Inc. and Pave-Al Limited to participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the major milestone in the Billy Bishop Airfield Rehabilitation Project – the resurfacing of runway 08-26 and the full reconstruction of runway 06-24.This significant three-year rehabilitation initiative which began earlier this summer is necessary to replace existing aging civil and electrical infrastructure to modernize the airport. This work also includes replacing the runway lighting to energy-efficient LED lighting, restoration of the runway and reconfiguring taxiways.
