Montreal-Trudeau Airport: Advice for Holiday Travellers

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2008) - With the Holidays approaching, Montreal-Trudeau airport expects to welcome many travellers during the coming days. Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) would like to take this opportunity to provide some helpful travel advice.

In order for passengers to avoid wasting time waiting at the airport, ADM recommends that they always check the status of their flight before arriving at the airport, either by visiting the ADM website at www.admtl.com or by contacting their airline. Travellers and people accompanying them also have access to instant flight status information by text message (SMS). The system, which automatically recognizes if the flight is arriving or departing, sends an alert if the schedule changes or the flight is cancelled. This service is easy to use: simply key the flight number into your mobile device and send it to 23636 by text message. You can also register for this service on the ADM website. Minimum charges apply for each flight information received up to a maximum of $1.00.

Similarly, in order to facilitate pre-boarding passenger screening procedures, ADM emphasizes that gifts placed in carry-on luggage must not be wrapped. For more information on items allowed aboard an aircraft, visit www.catsa-acsta.gc.ca.

To celebrate the Holidays, seasonal carols and music will play in the terminal during peak periods of the day. Montreal-Trudeau airport also offers a variety of services to facilitate the travel experience:

- Four parking lots to meet different needs,
- ValetParc, for those in a big hurry;
- ExpressParc, close to the arrivals area;
- ProxiParc, a three-level facility adjacent to the terminal;
- EconoParc, ideal for passengers taking longer trips.
- A wide range of restaurants and shops for all tastes.
- Services adapted for passengers with a disability
or reduced mobility.
