The John C Munro Hamilton International Airport opened in 1940 as Mount Hope Airport, which was primarily a Royal Canadian Air Force Base. At the end of the second World War the base closed and it’s conversion into a regional and international passenger airport began. It would host a series of connections to major Canadian cities and seasonal destinations and continues to do so today.
Situated in Mount Hope, 11km southwest of downtown Hamilton and 64km southwest of Toronto. The airport serves the city of Hamilton and the GTA, often acting as a reliever for Pearson. If you do live in the GTA and don’t want to deal with the larger Toronto Pearson International Airport, Hamilton might be a great option for you.
By the year 2000, WestJet expanded to Canada’s eastern region and Hamilton became the airlines eastern hub. And in 2017 Hamilton experienced an 80% increase in passengers to 600,000 and still remains one of Canada’s top domestic cargo airports.

When you are about to travel internationally, not having enough time can be stressful. Making sure you enough time to make it through airport security and checking-in is especially important.
Why is it important to be to the airport 3 hours before an international flight?
This is a question a lot of people ask, even if they’ve travelled internationally before. The time can vary depending on the airline you’re travelling with. Some airlines will say you only need 2 hours, while others go with the more common 3 hours. And most airlines will want you to be at the departure gate a minimum of 30 minutes before boarding the plane.
Then you have to factor in the amount of time it might take you and your group to get through security, or check your bags. Did you check-in online or will you need to at the airport? Checking-in at home will eliminate waiting in long lines at the airport. In many cases you can get your boarding pass electronically on your phone.
Each airline will have it’s own recommendations as to how much time they think you’ll need. It can also depend on the time of day, peak travel hours make this process a lot longer and time consuming. With all of that in mind, you can make sure you’re at the airport on time and you won’t be in a stressful rush to make it to your plane.
How will you get to the airport?
We can help with that, we offer some of the lowest rates. And we can take you to a number of airports that are located in the area, Pearson International, Billy Bishop Toronto Airport, and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, to name a few.
