This autumn, Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (or YUL for short) hit a new pinnacle of direct routes to 150 destinations making the city easier to get to than ever before. As a leading airline in bringing people to and from Montréal, Air Canada – recently once again named the Best Airline in North America by Skytrax – is helping to bring those numbers even higher with some new exciting routes of their own.

Roads to Asia

With the commencement of summer 2018’s direct flights from YUL to Tokyo Narita, in addition to their non-stop service to Shanghai, Air Canada’s routes between Montréal and Asia double – both introduced within the last three years. With the addition of non-stop service to Japan, the horizon grows even brighter.

Bringing Europe closer

Montréal’s blend of North American modernity and European charm has thrilled visitors for nearly centuries, and the link between the city and the continent grows ever stronger with new routes to Lisbon, Dublin, and Bordeaux. These new additions make for a truly fitting trio of destinations given Montréal’s vibrant Portuguese community and the historical importance of both the Irish and the French to the development of the city.


Montréal’s connection to our neighbours to the south has always been strong, and that love affair continues with Air Canada’s recently announced nonstop service to Raleigh, joining new routes to Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Phoenix all launched in 2018.

All the corners of the world

And they haven’t stopped there. With other recent route additions to Lima, Algiers, and Bucharest, Air Canada brings the world closer in reach and further solidifying Montréal as a leading international transit hub. As Canada’s most international airport with over 90 destinations, YUL has also been recognized as one of the Top 10 Airports in North America by Skytrax World Airport Awards – and Air Canada is a vital part of that reputation.
