Special Delivery at Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is proud to be receiving and transporting today an international organ donation that will be arriving at Montreal-Trudeau airport from Munich, Germany. This is the first time a donated organ has come to Montreal from Europe.

ADM supports the Canadian Organ Donors Association (CODA) by transporting organs from Montreal-Trudeau to various hospitals. More than 40 members of ADM's Airport Patrol volunteer for this cause and have supervised the transportation of 197 medical teams and donated organs during the past three years.

"Ours is the only international airport in North America to which CODA has given a vehicle especially adapted for this function," Normand Boivin, ADM's Vice-President, Airport Operations, noted with pride. "We are pleased to have been participating in this humanitarian action since February 2005."
