Notice to Travellers Departing From Montreal-Trudeau Airport to Midwest of the United States

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2011) - A major snowstorm in the United States Midwest has forced several flight cancellations to and from the United States. Aéroports de Montréal recommends US bound travelers departing from Montréal–Trudeau to check the status of their flight with their airline before going to the airport. A list of airlines is available on the ADM website at www.admtl.com in the Air Services section.

Travellers and the people accompanying them also have access to instant flight status information by text message (SMS). This service is easy to use: simply key the flight number into the cellphone and send it to 23636 by text message. The system automatically recognizes if the flight is arriving or departing. It sends an alert by SMS if the flight schedule changes or the flight is cancelled. In this way, passengers and the people accompanying them can avoid wasting time waiting at the airport. Minimum charges apply for each flight information received for a maximum rate of $1.00.

Note that all information posted on the ADM website by the SMS 23636 service and by phone (514 394-7377) originates from the airlines and is updated as soon as the companies communicate any changes in their regular schedules.

Flight schedules are always subject to change, especially in winter. A flight heading to Montréal–Trudeau may be delayed or cancelled because the aircraft left late or was unable to take off from its airport of origin.

Note to media:

It is important to note that unfavourable weather conditions are common during the winter season. We will issue, through our media line, the number of flight cancellations due to bad weather when the numbers warrant it.
