AIR CANADA AT MONTREAL-TRUDEAU AIRPORT

Montreal-Trudeau Airport (YUL) is a strategic hub for Air Canada connecting its Quebec and Atlantic Canada domestic network, its U.S. transborder routes and as an international gateway for Air Canada's services to and from the Caribbean , Mexico and Europe .

Air Canada provides service in both of Canada's official languages. As a fully bilingual operation, YUL plays a special role in connecting Canada with many French-speaking communities in the world, known as la francophonie, with service to points throughout Quebec and New Brunswick among other, as well as to and from France (Paris CDG), Switzerland ( Geneva ), Brussels ( Belgium - summer 2010), Martinique , Guadeloupe and Haiti .

On August 19, 2009 , Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) inaugurated a new sector for transborder departures to the United States , completing the terminal's transformation which began in 2000. The new U.S. transborder facilities are larger and more customer-friendly, and provide travellers with a smoother, faster check-in and security clearance experience. The new two-storey facility is located adjacent to the existing transborder jetty.

By next summer Air Canada will offer non stop service between Montreal and six European gateway cities including London , Paris , Frankfurt , Geneva and Rome . As well, Air Canada's Star Alliance partners Lufthansa and Swiss International Air Lines offer service from Montreal to Munich and Zurich respectively, further increasing connections and travel options.
