Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport
Montreal's only passenger airport contains one building, all on one level, with fingers that branch from the main building creating four divisions-two are international and two are domestic. In essence, Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is odd in shape, but the layout works well. Separate arrival and departure areas are also found within the airport
Domestic Flight Terminal (Arrivals)
As a person faces the airport from the parking lots, the domestic arrivals are located to the right before the main building branches out into two fingers forming the gates for all domestic flights. Passengers and their family and friend first enter the building into the public area and then only passengers are allowed into the arrivals area which is beyond security checkpoints.
Domestic Flight Terminal/A Gates (Departures)
To the right of the main building are the two wings that house the gates for all domestic flights. The first wing (south) serves Gates 1 through 15. The second wing (north) serves Gates 17 through 35 and gates 47, 48, and 49. Airlines served in this wing include Air Canada, Air Canada Jazz, Air Creebec, Air Georgian, Air Inuit, Air Labrador, First Air, Porter Airlines, Provincial Airlines, Sunwing Airlines, and WestJet. Access to these gates is found by following the signs for the "A" Gates.
International & Transborder Flight Terminals (Arrivals)
All international arrivals are routed through the left side of the main building. The room to the north is for all international arrivals. A separate area is for Transborder (flights to the United States) and sits below the international arrivals. Though flights from the United States are considered international flights, the airport does separate them for now. Once the passport law for crossing the United States border comes into effect, this may change.
International & Transborder Flight Terminals/B and C Gates (Departures)
Gates B and C make up the International and Transborder departure areas. The lower finger, C Gates, house the area for transborder flights. Only flights heading into the United States depart from this area. Gates 72 to 89 serve passengers flying into the United States. Transborder airlines include Air Canada, Air Canada Jazz, Air Transat, American Airlines, American Eagle, CanJet, Continental Airlines, Continental Express, Delta Airlines, Delta Connection, Miami Air, Northwest Airlines, Northwest Airlink, Sunwing Airlines, United Airlines, United Express, US Airways, US Airways Express, and WestJet.
The B Gates house all of the airline gates for international flights (to all other countries in the world). This wing sits to the north of the C Gates and is easily accessible through a passage from the main terminal. Gates 50 and 51 serve international flights but may serve a domestic flight during peak travel times. Gates 52 through 61 serve international flights only. In peak flying seasons, Gates 56, 58, and 60 may also cover transborder flights.
