history [edit ]

early years [edit ]

By the 1940s, it was increasingly clear that Montreal ‘s master airport, Saint-Hubert Airport, in operation since 1927, was no longer adequate for the city ‘s needs. The Minister of Transport purchased land at the Dorval Race Track, which was considered the best localization for an hypertrophied airport because of its well weather conditions and few brumous days. The airport opened on September 1, 1941, as Dorval Airport/Aéroport Dorval with three pave runways. By 1946 the airport was hosting more than a quarter of a million passengers a year, growing to more than a million in the mid-1950s. During World War II thousands of Allied aircraft passed through Dorval on the way to England. At one clock Dorval was the major transatlantic hub for commercial air travel and the busiest airport in Canada, with flights from airlines such as british Overseas Airways Corporation ( BOAC ). Until 1959, it besides doubled as RCAF Station Lachine. Airport diagram for 1954

growth [edit ]

Air Canada airplanes parked at the old aeroquay in 1982 In November 1960 the airport was renamed Montreal–Dorval International Airport/Aéroport external Dorval de Montréal. On December 15 of that year the Minister of Transport inaugurated a newly $ 30 million terminal. The structure was built by Illsley, Templeton, Archibald, and Larose. [ 16 ] At its altitude, it was the largest terminal in Canada and one of the biggest in the earth. It was the gateway to Canada for all European air traffic and served more than two million passengers per year. Eight years later, Montréal–Dorval International Airport underwent a major expansion plan. Despite this, the government of Prime Minister of Canada Pierre Elliott Trudeau ( who represented a Montreal ride ) predicted that Dorval would be wholly saturated by 1985 and besides projected that 20 million passengers would be passing through Montreal ‘s airports per annum. They decided to construct a raw airport in Sainte-Scholastique, what became Montréal–Mirabel International Airport. As the first phase in the passage that would finally have seen Dorval closed, all international flights ( except those to and from the United States ) were to be transferred to the new airport in 1975 .

The open and close of Mirabel Airport [edit ]

On November 29, 1975, Mirabel International Airport went into service. With an operations zone of 70 km2 ( 27 sq michigan ) and a buffer zone of 290 km2 ( 110 sq mi ), it became the largest airport in the global. many connecting flights to canadian centres were transferred to Mirabel and 23 external airlines moved their oversea activities there. As a consequence, Montréal–Dorval was repurposed to serve domestic flights and transborder flights to the United States. Mirabel ‘s traffic decreased due to the advent in the 1980s of longer-range jets that did not need to refuel in Montreal before crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Montreal ‘s economic decline in the belated 1970s and 1980s had a significant effect on the airport ‘s traffic, as external flights bypassed Montreal all in all in privilege of Toronto Pearson International Airport. The Trudeau government had developed Mirabel Airport to handle an expect growth in international dealings and finally, to replace Dorval. however, the extra traffic never materialized. This, combined with Dorval ‘s closer proximity to downtown Montreal at 20 kilometer ( 12 mile ) alternatively of 39 km ( 24 secret intelligence service ), led to the tax return of all scheduled air services to Dorval, while Mirabel ceased passenger operations in 2004. In May 2007, it was reported that the International Centre of Advanced Racing had signed a 25-year lease with Aéroports de Montréal to use share of the airport as a racetrack, the Circuit ICAR. [ 17 ] [ 18 ] At the same time the fixed-base operator Hélibellule opened a adeptness there which caters to private planes. The company besides provides a helicopter passenger serve from Mirabel to destinations in Canada and the United States. [ 10 ] [ 19 ] They operate two different types of helicopters : the Bell 222 and the Aérospatiale Gazelle. [ 10 ]

back to Montréal–Dorval, renaissance [edit ]

With all international scheduled flights returning to Montréal–Dorval in 1997, american samoa well as rent flights in 2004, Montréal–Dorval International Airport ultimately became a true hub as passengers would no long have to travel to different airports depending on the finish of their flight. The consolidation of flights to Montréal–Dorval resulted in an increase in passenger traffic, not entirely due to the transfer of flights but because it became easier to connect through Montreal. Starting as Dorval Airport, then Montréal–Dorval International Airport, the airport was renamed Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Trudeau ‘s award on January 1, 2004, by the federal government. The rename had been announced in September 2003 by then Minister of Transport David Collenette. This move provoked some opposition, specially Quebec sovereigntists opposed to Trudeau ‘s staunchly federalist policies. The rename besides provoked opposition from many aviation historians and enthusiasts who recalled Trudeau ‘s function in the effort to shutter Dorval in favor of the much larger and mod Mirabel Airport, of which he was the greatest instigator of its construction. [ 20 ] many Montrealers still refer to Trudeau airport as “ Dorval, ” or “ Dorval Airport. ” [ 21 ]

Operation Yellow Ribbon [edit ]

After the September 11 attacks, Dorval Airport participated in Operation Yellow Ribbon, taking in seven diverted flights that had been bound for the conclude airspace over the United States, even though pilots were asked to avoid the airport as a security measuring stick. Mirabel International Airport besides took in 10 other divert flights totaling 17 amused flight in the Montreal area constipate for american cities. [ 22 ]

75th anniversary [edit ]

In 2016, Montréal-Trudeau celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary. Under the subject Service, Destinations, Passion since 1941, diverse activities and contests were planned throughout the class. In partnership with the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, the airport hosted the Travelling Through Time exhibition in the populace hall of the US Departures sphere. [ 23 ] Exhibits showcasing authoritative milestones in the airport ‘s history were incorporated throughout the end .

expansion [edit ]

terminal expansion ( 2000–2007 ) [edit ]

The international arrivals hallway and baggage claim opened in 2005 . International breakwater under construction in 2004 Montréal–Trudeau underwent a major expansion and modernization designed to increase the end ‘s capacitance and substantially enhance the level of passenger service. In February 2000, with a budget of CAD716 million, ADM announced plans for an extensive expansion design that would bring Montréal–Trudeau up to standard with early north american airports its size. The airport terminal had for the most part remained the same, with the exception of minor renovations, since its open in 1960. With increase passenger bulk resulting from the transfer of external scheduled passengers from Mirabel Airport in 1997, ampere well as Air Canada ‘s intentions to make Montréal–Trudeau its Eastern Canada hub, there was a strong need to greatly expand the terminal, whose capacity of roughly 7 million passengers per year had been exceeded. The expansion plan included the construction of respective brand-new facilities, including a breakwater for flights to the United States ( US Preclearance Terminal ), another for early international destinations ( International Terminal ) and a huge international arrivals complex. An 18-gate Transborder Concourse opened in 2003, [ 24 ] an 11- gate International Concourse opened in 2004, [ 24 ] new customs hall and baggage claim sphere for non-domestic flights and an expanded parking garage opened in 2005. [ 24 ] Additionally, sections of the domestic area were renovated and expanded in 2007, accompanied with extra retail distance. [ 24 ] The International part of the Aeroquay satellite was demolished in 2008, leaving the domestic function for regional carriers. [ 24 ] The completion of the CAD716 million expansion gives Montréal–Trudeau the ability to serve 15 million passengers a year. [ 25 ] This ironically accomplished one of the goals that was to be met with the construction of Mirabel. ( In the 1970s, the federal politics projected that 20 million passengers would be passing through Montreal ‘s airports annually by 1985, with 17 million through Mirabel ). Aéroports de Montréal financed all of these improvements itself, with no politics grants. By the end of 2007, CAD1.5 billion had been spent to upgrade Montréal–Trudeau. [ 26 ]
The last round of construction in this phase was to allow the airport to accommodate the Airbus A380. Gate 55, separate of the external breakwater, was designed for the requirements of the A380. It is equipped with two air out bridges to load and unload passengers on both decks of the A380 simultaneously. With Phase II of the external breakwater expansion nowadays completed, the airport has two extra A380 gates, although there are presently no airlines operating this type of aircraft at the airport. Air France became the first operator of the type in Montreal on April 22, 2011, when they formally launched their casual A380 service from Paris. [ 27 ] A380 service was reduced to 4 hebdomadally flights during summer 2012 and recall in October 2012, ascribable to abject requirement for business classify and a high charge of competition, with Air Canada, Air Transat and Corsair besides operating Montreal–Paris flights .

New hotel, transborder terminal expansion and modernization ( 2006–2009 ) [edit ]

The new Marriott hotel and U.S. Departures wing On June 15, 2006, construction began on a new four-star Marriott hotel at the airport, above the transborder terminal. originally scheduled to be completed by September 2008, the 279 excellent room hotel opened its doors on August 19, 2009. construction was slowed down because of the recession and a crash in the Transborder market. It contains an clandestine train station that was planned to finally connect the airport with downtown Montreal a well as ADM ‘s corporate headquarters. On the lapp day, Montreal–Trudeau airport opened the doors to the refurbished, expanded, modernized and user-friendly transborder terminal, meeting the diligence ‘s highest standards. This increased the total area of the terminal from 9,320 to 18,122 m2 ( 100,320 to 195,060 sq foot ). Furthermore, the terminal is equipped with a new baggage sort room which allows U.S. customs officers to retrieve baggage for secondary inspection. [ 26 ]

International terminal expansion ( 2011–2016 ) [edit ]

overview of the international and transborder jetties during the expansion project in 2014 In July 2011, James Cherry, the CEO of Aéroports de Montréal, announced the construction of a two-phase expansion of Montréal–Trudeau ‘s external terminal. The total price of the visualize, now completed, has been around $ 620 million. [ 28 ] [ 29 ] Phase I of this project, which was completed on December 20, 2012, opened a new boarding lounge which can accommodate a many as 420 passengers, along with a raw gate, numbered 62. It was formally completed at a monetary value of $ 270 million. The new gate can accommodate three Passenger Transfer Vehicles, allowing passengers to be transferred from the concluding to an aircraft parked on a distant stand nearby. When phase II of the expansion began in 2014, this gate was closed to passengers. It was reopened with the inauguration of the extension two years subsequently. Phase II of the plan, which was officially inaugurated on May 10, 2016, and put into service two days after, added six fresh contact gates for widebody aircraft jets, including two for the Airbus A380, increasing the total number of contact gates from 10 to 16. This expansion holds gates 63 through 68. The area has 20,000 m2 of candid spaces, restaurants, shops and a children ‘s playground area. It took two years to complete and opened four months ahead of the original schedule for a full cost of $ 350 million. It was conceived by Humà Design and integrates three massive artwork installations and four vitrines showcasing Montreal ‘s museums. The extension of the international breakwater was built to alleviate the high flat of congestion on the tarmacadam and in the concluding. [ 30 ]
The newly built expansion of the international breakwater apart from these expansions, ADM inaugurated in April 2016, a commercial area between gate 52 and 53. This area is called Haltes gourmandes ( english : epicure stops ) referring to the large number of restaurants located there. The new restaurants are all owned by SSP Canada Food Service Inc. They operate 12 locations in the terminal, managing a sum of 4000 m2 of end area. SSP invested over $ 200 million throughout 2016 in its airport locations. [ 31 ]

future projects ( 2018–2030 ) [edit ]

In January 2016, ADM published a call for tenders on their web site regarding the restoration and upgrade of the curtain wall of the main façade on the end. [ 32 ] This part of the airport is one of the oldest remaining parts of the original terminal. besides, according to the 2013–2033 dominate plan from ADM, the following future developments are in the works :

The first phase ( $ 2.5 billion ) will see the airport ‘s multi-level parking bunch demolished and rebuilt with a k ceiling and the Montreal-Trudeau Airport REM place underneath. The cliff area will be greatly expanded and covered with glaze, and a newfangled distant terminal will be built where runway 10/28 used to stand. By 2030, the distant terminal will be connected via future phases to the current terminal build up to handle the expect growth. ADM CEO Philippe Rainville stated “ the airport ‘s emergence has been about double the international average in late years [ so the ] goal is to meet the growth projections of the airport. ” [ 34 ]
