Toronto Pearson announced that the airport will participate in Facebook Deals to offer Facebook users free access to Plaza Premium Lounges at the airport when they check-in to Toronto Pearson on Facebook Places. Facebook Places gives people the power to easily share where they are with friends on Facebook, find friends who are nearby and discover new places.

Using an iPhone or by logging into on a touch-enabled smart phone, 1,000 Toronto Pearson guests each day on January 31, February 1 and February 2, 2011 who check-in to the Toronto Pearson location on Facebook Places will receive a deal redeemable at any of the airport’s five Plaza Premium Lounges. Guests simply show their claimed deal on their mobile phone at any of the lounge locations for free access while they await their flights. A total of 3,000 lounge access coupons are available to be claimed during the 72-hour promotion.

“As one of the busiest entry points into North America, it’s no surprise Toronto Pearson is also one of the most popular check-in spots in Canada for Facebook’s 500 million users, and we’re excited to be among the first brands in Canada to reward guests who check-in,” said Pamela Griffith-Jones, Chief Marketing and Commercial Development Officer of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which operates Toronto Pearson. “Offering free lounge access to our passengers who check-in to Toronto Pearson on Facebook Places is another way for us to attract, serve and delight our guests.”
