Montreal Airport (YUL) passengers
- YUL is continuing to welcome more and more passengers: 5.0 million passengers in the second quarter of 2019 (+5.0%) and 9.7 million in the first half of 2019 (+5.7% ).
- All three activity sectors, international, transborder and domestic, contributed to the growth. The increase was especially pronounced on the international side, with the sector posting a 9.8% increase in passenger traffic for the quarter under review and 10.7% in the six-month period.
- With an expanding number of destinations, YUL remains Canada’s most international airport as a proportion of its total passenger traffic (among the country’s largest airports).
- In the second quarter of 2019, commercial air movements at YUL dropped by 2.1%, reflecting an increase in the number of passengers per flight. For the first six months of the year, the decline was 1.2%.
“The first six months of 2019 show sustained growth in passenger traffic, demonstrating the strength of Montréal-Trudeau as an international hub for air traffic. The management of Aéroports de Montréal wishes to thank its employees and those of the airport community, who contribute every day to achieving these more than satisfactory results, in addition to enhancing the level of service offered to the passengers who visit YUL,” said Philippe Rainville, President and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal.
