Deborah Flint, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Toronto Airport Authority, has admitted that hitting the 40s is not the number the airport aspires to be.

"But it's certainly better than he's 25% or he's 20% or less, especially in the early summer," Flint told reporters.

"Certainly I look forward to the day we cross her 50s and go back to her 70s and her 80%," she said of the flight being completed without delay. rice field.

Airport administrators, especially in Europe and Canada, are fast-tracking new hires even as the recovery in air travel from the pandemic-induced slump has led to flight cancellations and hours-long queues.

Toronto's Pearson made international headlines and drew criticism on social media after passengers posted photos of long lines and piles of luggage.

Changes such as adding more staff and ending random screening of international arrivals at airports have improved operations, Flint said.

"This is a transitional period and performance will continue to improve as the system becomes more stable," she said. (Reporting by Allison Lampert and Alistair Bell)
