Terminal 1

The original terminal 1 was opened on February 28,1964. It was a circular terminal with a square parking garage on the top. It was offically closed on April 5, 2004 and demolished. The new terminal 1 was opened in April 6, 2004 right when the old terminal was closed. The old terminal was demolished to make room for the new Pier F which adds more gates to the new terminal 1 and allows bigger aircrafts to fit there. Terminal 1 is also the home of the the world's fastest moving walkway. Terminal 1 is connected to the LINK Train network linking the terminal to Terminal 3 and the Viscount Station.

Terminal 1 consists of three areas: Canadian departures (western section), international departures (southern hammerhead) and the remainder for USA departures (neck to hammerhead and eastern section). Access to international departures is via the neck over US departures.

Terminal 2

Terminal 2 was opened in 1972. It was originally meant to be a cargo terminal. However terminal 1 became too crowded by 1970s. Instead it was opened as a passenger terminal and was officially opened on June 15, 1972. It originally served chartered airlines but however Air Canada moved their hub to terminal 2. Air Canada moved their hub back to terminal 1 when terminal 2 closed. On January 29, 2007 terminal 2 operated for the final day. After that day all airlines moved to Pier F. Terminal 2 started demolition in April 2007. As of today the land where terminal 2 once stands is empty.

Terminal 3

Terminal 3 was opened in 1991 to help equalize traffic from Terminals 1 and 2. It is the hub for OneWorld and SkyTeam alliance airlines, along with unaligned airlines.

Terminal 3 is separated into 3 areas: domestic, USA and international.
