How to prepare for your holiday trip

How to prepare for your holiday trip

The holiday season is expected to be particularly busy at Montreal Airport, which is preparing to serve its 21 millionth passenger this year, on its way to a new traffic record.

This good year for the airport manager should result in a large number of travelers over the holiday period. For this reason, Montreal Airport Company has provided some tips to help travelers prepare for their trip during this particularly busy period at airports around the world.

Beware of gifts!

• It is important to place wrapped gifts in checked baggage (carry-on baggage). If this is not possible, gifts placed in hand luggage (cabin carriage) must not be wrapped.

• Check with your air carrier for the acceptable size of hand luggage and the maximum weight of carry-on baggage.

To get to the airport

• Check road and traffic conditions before leaving. You can consult Quebec 511 for this purpose.

• Check airport parking status and reserve your parking space on the Montreal Airport website.

• If you use public transportation, you can check the different public transportation options available in your area to reach the airport on its website.

To go up

• It is important to check your flight status and schedule before going to YUL by consulting the Montreal Airport website or by calling your airline.

• Arrive early at the airport 3 hours before the flight departure time to complete the boarding process at the airport. Wait times may be extended due to high traffic.

• To benefit from quick access to airport operations, take advantage of the two free services offered at YUL:

– Mobile Passport Control allows you to submit your passport and customs declaration information in advance for flights to the United States. This saves you time and you will benefit from the priority line once you arrive at the airport.

– YUL Express allows you to book your security screening time online and offers a priority line for all flights except the US.

On the way back

• Simplify your arrival in Canada by completing your Customs and Immigration Declaration 72 hours before your return, with ArriveCAN.

• To avoid any waiting, you can pay for your parking online on your mobile device, 15 minutes before leaving the airport. Simply scan the QR code on your parking ticket and follow the instructions.

Holiday rewards

• Santa Claus and amazing acrobats will also be present to entertain young and old. Additionally, you can let yourself be carried away by the beautiful Christmas carols of the St. George and St. Joseph Choir and the Montreal Jazz Band.
