sounds interesting, Im a bit confused by the location though, adjacent to 1 and 3? it would be one really long building and would have to cut through a lot of road. Also does this mean no new hotel just for terminal 1? I always assumed they would put a really nice hotel adjacent to terminal, a la Crowne Plaza at Singapore Changi.

I think it will be at the end of the LINK monorail, i.e. on the other side of Airport Road...

Can't remember if it was ever posted here, but last year the CEO of Sri Lankan Airlines stated that they had plans to add YYZ as an extension of their flights to London Gatwick....there has been no official word of a Canada-Sri Lanka air agreement yet, but they have just signed one with the U.K. which permits onward flights to Canada....

That is correct, it will be on the south side of Viscount beside the terminus of the LINK and across the street from the massive parking garage.

There was an RFP for development of this land put out a while ago IIRC.

As T1 expands towards the footprint of the old T2, there are plans to incorporate a full service transit hotel.

The current rumour is that Starwood would "move" here and upgrade to the Westin brand allowing for the demolition of the existing Sheraton Gateway building as part of future terminal expansion/development at T3.

The way the article is worded it seems that UR is planning on keeping 14 weekly that terminate in the UK and use the additional 7 weekly to start a daily YYZ via LGW.

Actually I posted something like this back in November or December of last year. There was a lengthy debate about whether or not it would be a viable route. The plan was exactly the same as is stated here. Funny how things work out. I wish them luck and hope they make it into YYZ.

Yah, everyone is confused about that one. It's a fairly illogical choice for a first entry into Canada.

Yeah this was to be expected given the conditions in Egypt. They're also deferring the A330 deliveries and trying to lease out some birds.
It's a shame, but hopefully they'll be able to bounce back quickly given that they have *A to help feed traffic too.

It seems like Massoud is pretty confident that MS can get the flight going by the winter schedule so it may be a 6-9 month delay.

considering all thats happened in the last few weeks, Id say the toronto route is the least of their concerns. I wish them the very best for the future, if prosperity finally comes to Egypt I have no doubt that trade and by extension commercial air traffic will boom. May be even daily surface?

It looks like Qatar Airways would try to secure daily flights to YUL before opening up service to other Canadian destinations. This gets more confusing by the minute. It's almost as if Qatar Airways isn't aware the YYZ exists...

Source http://starglobaltribune.com/2011/qa...al-canada-6231

Quote: “According to the government agency Export Development Canada, there are more than 1,500 Canadian companies doing business in the Gulf and Qatar, in particular, is one of Canada’s largest trading partners in the Middle East.

“With the oil and gas industry being a key connection that naturally aligns us, we hope that as soon as our thrice-weekly service is well-established and boosts the Qatari and Canadian economy to receive additional traffic rights for a daily operation to Montreal.

“Montreal is one of the most sought after destinations in the world and we hope to have paved the way for expanded capacity into Canada and operate to additional cities in the future. There is natural demand for travel from many parts of our international network to Canada, and thanks to our scheduling we are able to offer convenient connections over Doha,” he added.



The natural demand seems like it would come from the subtantially larger Southeast Asian population in the GTA. I'd be surprised if travelers to the Asian Subcontinent will opt for an additional stop in YUL when EK, EY, AI, PK, and soon enough MS all offer direct or one stop service from YYZ.

One of the most sought after destinations in the world does not serve such a small amount of passengers.

Maybe they are learning from EK? They probably don't want to serve YYZ and YUL with a three weekly rotations to each destination. That is if they are in the same boat with UAE in terms of bilateral agreement. No wonder why EK has not so great LF here in YYZ. It's hard to make it work the way it is.

Exactly. By that logic they should have started YYC first.

I think one of the Qataris probably got confused looking at a map of Canada and mistook Montreal for Toronto.

Bound to be rectified in the coming months.

EK's and EY's load factors are 90% and 80% respectively into YYZ. I'm pretty sure that's not considered small.
