Media Advisory - Media opportunities for the opening of new Terminal 1

TORONTO, April 1 /CNW/ - The new Terminal 1 at Toronto Pearson
International Airport will open on Tuesday, April 6th. The following times and
dates should be noted:
MONDAY, APRIL 5TH - FINAL INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT OUT OF OLD TERMINAL 1
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Location: Old Terminal 1
Access: Public areas
Time: The final international flight is scheduled for
10:25 p.m.
Passengers will be checking in for this flight as early
as 8:00 p.m.
Media are invited to interview passengers in the
departures hall, and witness the final departure from
Level 9 of the parking garage (in case of inclement
weather, Level 8 will be available).
Directions: Follow the signs for Terminal 1, proceed to the parking
garage (please note: this garage will close at midnight,
all vehicles must be removed by that time).

There was also information about the first arrival at the New T1. However that section contained nothing of interest to anyone except accredited media representatives.

The final departure is flight AC886 to Tel Aviv. I neglected to find out what equipment is used on that flight.
