easiest airport for thunder bay

I'm staying in oakville and flying to thunder bay - have the options of an early morning flight from Pearson or a prefered 2pm flight from Toronto Island airport (porter airline). Which would be easiest/quickest with a taxi drop off?

Hi rafiki88;

The airports are equidistant from Oakville. Traffic will most likely be lighter mid-day, driving to the Toronto Island Airport.

Best Regards

Porter is also a nicer flight

From Oakville you can also take a GO Train to Union Station, then you can walk through the station to the Skywalk/York street end where Porter has a check-in and a free shuttle to the island airport.

thanks for the advice re porter airlines and island airport - would the GO be easy with quite a bit of heavy luggage ie no steps or lifting required - (bad backs!)? otherwise a taxi might be better for us. appreciate your quick replies!

Definitely do Porter... a much nicer experience. If you have a LOT of heavy luggage, skip the Go, and call a LIMO service rather than a cab. You can usually get to downtown TO for around $50.00 in a Lincoln Town Car. A cab, depending on traffic, can cost you more than that, plus you can pre arrange the limo days before if you want.
