Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) today proudly welcomed Montréal-Trudeau airport's 14 millionth passenger of this year. It marked the first time in the airport's history that annual passenger traffic has reached this milestone.
Christiane Beaulieu, ADM's Vice-President, Public Affairs and Communications, presented passengers aboard Air Canada flight 1686, bound for Saint Lucia, with mementoes to mark this event. "The 14 millionth passenger is on board, but because we can't say precisely who it is, we are pleased to share this honour with everyone on the flight," Ms. Beaulieu said.
The Montréal-Trudeau terminal, which has undergone expansion and modernization since 2002, now meets the industry's highest standards. Serving more than 130 destinations with direct flights, Montréal-Trudeau is Canada's second-largest airport in terms of international destinations.
ADM is also a recognized leader in the use of new technologies designed to facilitate and accelerate airport processes: self-serve check-in kiosks, luggage self-tagging, automated border clearance, SecurXpress and online parking reservation are just a few examples of the technological innovations available at Montréal-Trudeau.
"We are proud of the work accomplished by ADM's employees and partners," Ms. Beaulieu concluded. "The addition of a new commercial area and the new duty-free shop will help further enhance customer satisfaction."
ADM is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montréal-Trudeau and Montréal-Mirabel international airports under a lease signed with Transport Canada in 1992. The Corporation employs more than 625 people at both airports and at head office.
