New at Montreal-Trudeau: Flight Information Now Accessible by SMS

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 6, 2007) - As the result of a partnership with LIPSO, Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is now offering a flight information service using text messaging or SMS (short message service).

Montreal-Trudeau thus becomes the first Canadian airport to offer such a service, which allows callers who want to check the status of a flight to do so using their cellphone in text messaging mode.

This new service is user-friendly: the caller simply text messages the flight number to 23636. The caller can also receive an alert if the flight schedule changes or the flight is cancelled. With this service, passengers and people accompanying them can avoid useless waiting at the airport. The cost is 75 cents per item of flight information received.

An FAQ (frequently asked questions) section and a demonstration of this practical new service are available on the ADM website by clicking "Passenger Services/New Airport Services."

For more information on text messaging, users can check their telephone instruction manual or contact their cellular service provider.
