A survey has found Toronto Pearson International Airport ranked among the lowest in customer satisfaction of all major North American airports for the second year running.

The J.D. Power airport satisfaction survey found Pearson ranked 16 out of 20 in the mega airports category, which includes airports that see more than 33 million passengers a year.

The ranking was based on a 1,000-point scale where Pearson received a score of 755, down 25 points from last year and 14 points below the average ranking for major airports.

Michael Taylor, J.D. Power’s travel intelligence lead, says many major airports, including Pearson, have been grappling with staffing shortages as passenger volumes reach 91 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, a trend that could continue into the upcoming holiday season.

A spokesperson for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Tori Gass, says the survey polled 637 Pearson passengers, making the sample size too small to draw a significant conclusion.

While J.D. Power would not confirm this number, they say 26,529 residents across the U.S. and Canada were surveyed in total between August 2021 and July of this year.
