Europe More Accessible Than Ever With 29 Direct Destinations From Montreal-Trudeau

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - March 9, 2015) - Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) is pleased to announce that several new air services from Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport have already been confirmed for this summer.

During the summer season, no fewer than 29 European cities will be accessible by direct flight, including Budapest (Hungary), offered for the first time. The Montréal-Paris route will remain the best-served international route from Canada, with up to eight daily flights to Charles de Gaulle or Orly. Montréal-Trudeau will also welcome a new carrier, SkyGreece Airlines.

Overall, travellers can choose from a total of 105 non-stop destinations. Compared with 2014, carriers serving Montréal-Trudeau will offer 5% more seats, including 6% more seats to Europe, this summer.

"We are pleased to note that air service from Montréal, already highly enviable, continues to improve in 2015 without counting other flights that could be added to the schedule in the next few months," said James Cherry, President and CEO of ADM.
