MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2008) - On the heels of yesterday's announcement of the planned major investment by Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) at Montreal-Mirabel International Airport, Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) wishes to emphasize the strategic importance of this aerospace centre, which will be devoted to the final assembly and testing of a new generation of aircraft engines.

"This ultra-modern 300,000-square-foot centre, scheduled to open in mid-2009, will strengthen Montreal-Mirabel's positioning as a major hub of Montreal's aerospace industry, and we want to assure P&WC of our most active support in the success of this project," said Jean Teasdale, ADM's Vice-President, Real Estate and Commercial Services.

Mr. Teasdale continued: "With its world-class infrastructures, competitive real-estate offering and proximity to many key industry members, including Bombardier and L3 MAS - and now P&WC - Montreal-Mirabel has all the assets necessary to be an international player alongside Montreal-Trudeau."
