Montréal-Trudeau Airport (YUL for airport code lovers) is constantly on the rise, each year adding more routes and welcoming more guests than ever before. And now it’s time to celebrate – the addition of nonstop service to Vienna, Austria brings the total of direct destinations to 150!

Canada’s most international airport

Aéroports de Montréal is proud to announce the arrival of both Aer Lingus and Austrian Airlines – the 36th and 37th carriers at Montréal-Trudeau. Aer Lingus’ Montréal-Dublin route starting summer 2019 will increase annual flights to the Irish capital, while Austrian Airlines’ Montréal-Vienna route brings the grand total of destinations reached from YUL to 150.

Montréal-Trudeau offers, more than ever, a diversified air service worthy of major airports. A busy 41% of all passengers at YUL are travelling to or from an international destination (excluding US destinations), making Montréal-Trudeau the most international of Canadian airports. One of Skytrax World Airport Awards’ Top 10 Airports in North America (not to mention sixth overall for “Best Airport Staff in North America”), Montréal-Trudeau is a gateway destination for nearly 20 million guests annually.

And if that weren’t proof enough that Montréal loves to fly, the city’s place at the forefront of the aero industry offers one of the only locations in the world where an entire plane can be constructed tip-to-tail within a 30-kilometre radius of the city.

A jewel in the crown destination

Vienna’s history as a cornerstone of Europe is the perfect addition to Montréal-Trudeau’s ever-growing list of direct flight routes. The capital of Austria is a trendsetting city similar to Montréal, leading the way in new developments in tech and finance. Connecting the two cities is a natural new pin in Montréal-Trudeau’s map that extensively covers six of the globe’s seven continents (with the Antarctic accessible to the intrepid explorer by boat transfer).

So pop the champagne and raise a toast – all that’s left to ask now is, “where to next?”
