Aeroports de Montreal Welcomes its 12 Millionth 2007 Passenger

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2007) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) welcomed its 12 millionth traveller today and expects to receive nearly 12.4 million passengers in 2007. This is the first year ever that traffic in Montreal has reached the 12-million passengers emplaned/deplaned mark. ADM celebrated the event by giving prizes and mementoes to three passengers departing Montreal-Trudeau.

"Passenger traffic in Montreal has maintained its growth, rising by 8%, and this development was especially significant in the international sector, with a rise of 12%. We are also pleased that our survey results indicate that 96% of our passengers are satisfied overall with their experience at Montreal-Trudeau," said Normand Boivin, Vice-President, Airport Operations, for ADM. "With the arrival of three new carriers, continuation of construction work on the new transborder (U.S.) departures hall, expansion and modernization of the domestic jetty and the visit in November of the Airbus A380, 2007 has been an important year for Montreal-Trudeau," he added.

ADM wishes to thank the merchants that contributed the prizes presented to passengers on the flight that included the 12 millionth passenger: HMS Host and HDS Retail.
