Montreal-Trudeau Airport: Tips for Travellers During the Holiday Period

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 18, 2015) - Montréal-Trudeau airport expects to welcome many travellers during the Holiday period. Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) would like to take this opportunity to provide some helpful advice.

To ensure a more pleasant and efficient airport experience, ADM reminds passengers that online services are available on our website With SecurXpress, passengers departing on international and domestic flights can go online to reserve priority passage through the security screening checkpoint. They can also reserve airport parking online, taking advantage of the proximity of our parking spaces as well as special rates.

Passengers can use the time they gain to explore the range of attractive offerings available from the boutiques and restaurants in our commercial sectors while enjoying seasonal musical performances and carol singing that will enhance the Holiday atmosphere in the terminal. The young and young-at-heart passing through the terminal are certain to be thrilled with the entertainment provided by the Montréal production company Cirkazou, with its elves, magicians, wandering makeup artists and other fantasy characters. There will also be a "virtual safari" near Gate 53, where children can virtually pet a variety of animals in a unique enhanced-reality experience.

Passengers are reminded to check their flight departure time before going to the airport, by visiting our website or contacting their airline.

Baggage preparation

To facilitate pre-boarding passenger screening procedures, ADM also reminds travellers that wrapped gifts should be placed in their checked baggage. If this is not possible, gifts placed in carry-on baggage must not be wrapped. For more information on items allowed in aircraft cabins, visit

Picking up passengers

Before heading to the arrivals pickup zone, Meeters and Greeters are asked to make sure the traveller they are waiting for has arrived and is ready to be picked up. In the meantime, they are invited to wait in our free of charge CellParc lot. Furthermore, to help passenger pickup, this section has been divided into five areas: A, B, C, D and E.
