Aeroports de Montreal/American Airlines: 30 Years of Service in Montreal

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 6, 2007) - Good humour was the order of the day as about 100 Montreal-Trudeau airport employees gathered today to help celebrate American Airlines' 30th anniversary of providing service to Montreal.

The highlight of the day was the landing of the Flagship Detroit, the world's oldest DC3 still flying. Built in 1937, it was recently refurbished by the Flagship Detroit Foundation representing American Airlines retired employees.

American Airlines began its operations in Montreal in 1977. Today, 550,000 passengers fly every year with American and its affiliated airline, American Eagle, between Montreal-Trudeau and any of the destinations they serve in the United States: Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Miami and New York (JFK).

"American Airlines is known for innovating and it can be assured that Aeroports de Montreal is always open to any innovative project it has in mind for Montreal-Trudeau," said ADM President and Chief Executive Officer James Cherry.

"With the construction of our new transborder departures hall, we are continuing our efforts to provide American Airlines and other carriers serving the U.S. with ultra-modern and top-quality airport facilities," Mr. Cherry added.

American Airlines and American Eagle employ 65 people at Montreal-Trudeau and fly out of the airport an average of 13 daily flights offering numerous connections to the United States, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Caribbean as well as Europe.

Aeroports de Montreal is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montreal-Trudeau and Montreal-Mirabel international airports since 1992. The Corporation employs a total of some 600 persons at both airports and at head office.
