瑞安航空在机场有自助值机服务,但需要缴费45英镑。所以乘客最好提前网上值机并打印登机牌(不论你是否购买了行李托运服务)。在很多情况下,中国乘客打印的“登机牌”不能自动生效使用。乘客必须拿着打印好的暂时无效登机牌提前至少2小时到机场行李托运柜台(不论你是否购买了行李托运服务)排长队等待航空公司员工人工检查护照等身份证件并盖章,“登机牌”才生效。

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

伦敦Stansted机场并不在伦敦,而是在伦敦东北方向30英里外的Essex,但它却是廉价航空公司进出伦敦的重要航空枢纽,绝大多数航班都是瑞安航空的。

从伦敦到Stansted机场最廉价的方式是提前在easyBus网站购买巴士票,含税价1.95英镑起(提前越早买到便宜票越容易)。但由于伦敦市区常常塞车,耗时可能超过2小时。不在乎钱,更在乎舒适与时间的话,可以搭乘机场快线火车。乘客必须提前至少2小时抵达机场才能够保证足够时间登机。 (more…)

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Toronto City Centre Airport T1

Since its opening in 1939, this airport has served as an important commercial aviation centre, a training base for both the Royal Canadian and Royal Norwegian Air Forces during WWI, a hub for General Aviation and emergency Medevac services and a key driver of Toronto’s economy. Today, the airport is Canada’s ninth busiest airport, servicing 24 destinations, welcoming 2.5 million travelers each year and generating more than $2 billion in economic impact for the city. In 2015, it reached a major milestone in customer service with the opening of a new pedestrian tunnel connecting Toronto’s mainland to the airport. Constructed 100 ft. below the surface of Lake Ontario and spanning the Western Gap, the tunnel provides travelers with quick and easy access to the airport in less than a six-minute walk.

For one day only – Saturday, May 28 – the airport will provide visitors with an in-depth look at the history and inner workings of the airport. Tour through the airport’s new 853-foot underwater tunnel and visit areas not usually accessible to the public, including a viewing area to watch planes up close as they taxi for take-off and landing. Enjoy the rare opportunity to go inside the airport’s fire hall and maintenance areas where children, young and old, can climb into a fire truck and explore one of the airport’s large snow sweepers. Billy Bishop Airport staff, operational personnel, historical experts and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and provide additional insight. A shuttle will be made available to those who require extra mobility assistance.

Complimentary shuttle bus
A complimentary express shuttle bus runs between Billy Bishop Airport and Downtown Toronto. The shuttle is open to anyone going to the airport, whether or not they are travelling.

Want to take the shuttle? You can hop on just outside the airport’s mainland ferry terminal building or across the street from Union Station. The downtown shuttle stop is located on south side of Front Street, just past the southwest corner of York and Front Streets. The designated stop is located near Starbucks.
