Montreal-Trudeau Airport: Opening of New Transborder Departures Sector Postponed to Mid-August

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 15, 2009) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM), in agreement with its partners, has decided to postpone to mid-August the opening of Montreal-Trudeau airport's new sector for departures to the United States. The opening had been slated for May 20.

The startup of these new facilities is less urgent in light of the marked decline in transborder (Canada-U.S.) traffic. This sector is in fact being particularly impacted by the recession - monthly traffic has dropped by between 5 and 11% since the start of the year. The situation is expected to stabilize somewhat this fall.

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