Since it assumed charge of the airport in 1996, GTAA has relied on Johnson Controls to operate and maintain the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that ensure comfortable conditions for passengers and employees. More recently, Johnson Controls has expanded its role to include installation of a new Web-based Metasys® building management system along with a state-of-the-art security system in the brand new Terminal 1.
A 10-year, $4.4 billion development programme is taking Toronto Pearson International Airport to new levels of safety, efficiency and passenger service. As Canada’s busiest airport, Pearson handles more than 25 million passengers per year with 1,200 daily arrivals and departures. By 2020, the airport expects to serve 50 million passengers annually. The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) has a mandate to operate Pearson within a regional system of airports to enhance economic growth and development in the Toronto area.
