Madrid, Lisbon, Bordeaux and Denver are Among this Summer's New Destinations Offered at Montreal-Trudeau

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - May 23, 2006) - Aeroports de Montreal is pleased to announce the new destinations that will be added to service offered at Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport for the 2006 summer season.

The international sector, which has grown substantially in recent years, will add three new destinations - Madrid, Lisbon and Bordeaux - that will be served via direct Air Transat flights. The Madrid service has already started, while the other flights will begin June 4 and 14, respectively. The Quebec airline has also added another weekly flight to Rome and Lyon.

Service will also be added to other existing European destinations. For example, Lufthansa is now offering a daily flight to Munich, rather than six flights a week. This special will last throughout the summer. As of June 1, British Airways will add three new flights to London-Heathrow, for a total of 10 flights a week. And on June 12, Canada's Zoom Airlines will begin offering one extra connection per week to Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, for a total of three weekly flights.

In addition, Royal Air Maroc will add three weekly flights to Casablanca, for a total of 10 flights a week during high season.

Finally, Mexican and Caribbean service will be expanded as Air Canada adds one weekly flight to Mexico City and Zoom Airlines launches a weekly flight to Puerto Plata.

For U.S. destinations, Air Canada will launch a new daily connection between Montreal and Denver on June 16. This flight is strategic given that Denver is not only an important centre but also a major hub for United Airlines, an Air Canada partner within the Star Alliance network.

Air Canada will also maintain its daily service to Orlando, Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale for the entire summer season, as well as adding a second flight to Los Angeles. Its partner, United Airlines, will do the same for Chicago.

Delta Airlines will also offer another daily flight between Montreal and New York City (JFK) as of June 8.

Finally, for domestic travel, Westjet has expanded its presence at Trudeau by adding extra flights to Vancouver and Toronto, and Air Canada is now offering more service to Atlantic Canada.

This summer, a total of 34 airlines will link Montreal-Trudeau to more than 94 airports throughout the world, including 45 international, 22 American and 27 Canadian airports, thereby offering travellers a vast choice in destinations and significant flexibility with respect to schedules.

ADM is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montreal-Trudeau and Montreal-Mirabel international airports under the terms of a lease entered into with Transport Canada in 1992. The Corporation employs a total of some 600 persons at the two airports and head office.
