MARCH BREAK | Busiest day at Pearson as families escape for a break

Today will be one of the busiest days at Pearson Airport in Toronto as families take off for March Break.

Canada's largest airport is prepared to handle a peak of 144,000 passengers in one day - making it one of the busiest travel seasons of the year.

This comes as the airport has been named the Best Large Airport in North America by Airports Council International for the second year in a row.
