Airport Update - March 28, 2013
As of the end of March 2013, there is no known change to the night flights permitted at Toronto Pearson. Nevertheless, in the absence of an announced decision from the Minister’s office and to maintain a focus on protecting our future sleep, we continue communication with relevant people at all three levels of government. In addition, we foster links with other important Toronto community organizations such as the Toronto Aviation Noise Group (T. A. N. G.).
The GTAA has taken on the services of Frontier Economics, a British business service organization specializing in analyzing and presenting the economic importance of various business sectors, including airports. Their Toronto Pearson study, “Engagement Strategy - Global Hub Economic Development Study”, is expected to “produce a compelling and credible story that motivates governments, community stakeholders, and other key opinion leaders to act in ways that support the development and differentiation of Toronto Pearson as a hub airport. An effective engagement strategy and communications plan will be a key element in ensuring maximum impact of the study.”
