Montréal–Trudeau International airport arrivals

Montréal – Trudeau International Airport is located 12 miles south of the city of Montréal. It is the third busiest airport in Canada. There were 236,908 YUL airport arrivals in 2019. There have been a drop in passengers last years since the pandemic.

The airport is also called ‘Aéroport International Montréal-Trudeau’ in French. It is also sometimes called Montréal–Dorval Airport because of its location in Dorval, Quebec. The airport serves people from Montreal and the surrounding area, regions in Quebec and eastern Ontario. Although it is located in Canada, it can also be useful for passengers traveling to the US as it is close to the border. The airport is named after the former Prime Minister Pierre Ellitt Trudeau. The Montreal Mirabel is largely responsible for the cargo transport, while Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) takes care of the operational tasks for passenger transport.

It is the busiest airport in Quebec and comes in third place in the country of Canada. Most airline routes remain in Canada itself or head south with destinations in the US. In addition, there are also planes to Europe, South America, Caribbean, Europe, and Asia. The largest airline at the airport is Air Canada. Other carriers based at Montreal Trudeau airport are Air Transat and Air Inuit.

Montreal airport History

The first flights to Montreal took place in 1927. That was at Saint Hubert airport. Because the demand for flights increased, a new airport had to be built. A piece of land was bought by the government at the Dorval Race Track. The new airport was opened in 1941 with the first Montreal airport arrivals with 3 additional runways. After a few years, more than 200,000 passengers used it every year. It soon reached the first million after ten years of opening.

Fifteen years after opening, a new terminal was put into use. This immediately became Canada’s largest terminal. The innovations led to it becoming Canada’s gateway from Europe. Its continuous growth was expanded, but it would be expected that it would soon reach the new maximum capacity. As a result, another airport was designed and built: Montreal Mirabel International Airport. There was a transition in which the flights to and from the US were still carried out but the rest transferred to the new airport in 1975. Montreal Mirabel airport became the largest airport in the world and more international airlines came with more routes.

Due to the Montreal’s economic decline and the larger aircraft from Europe, airline routes to Toronto Pearson airport changed. This also ensured that all flights went back from Maribel to Dorval Airport in 1987. Since 2004, Dorval airport has been called Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport.

Montreal Airport terminal

The terminal consists of two floors. Upstairs are the Check-in desks to access the gates via the security check. These gates are also divided into 3 parts, for domestic flights, U.S. flights and other international flights. Upon Montréal flight arrivals you will land on one of three runways (11,000, 9,600 and 7,000 feet long). When you arrive you will have to go down one floor in front of the baggage claim area where you will end up in the Montréal arrivals hall.
