"They are the main reason Montréal–Trudeau continues to climb in the rankings among other world-class airports. These results clearly show that our priorities are in line with passengers' needs."
Among the many initiatives implemented over the past year to further enhance the passenger experience at Montréal–Trudeau, YUL now has a new brigade of ambassadors whose mission is to maximize the airport experience for travellers at all stages of their route through the terminal, as well as the Pet Squad, made up of 30 dogs and their handlers, who roam the terminal building offering moments of companionship to passengers.
In the rankings of the World's Top 100 Airports, as voted by air travellers all over the world, YUL is now 62nd, an improvement of 26 spots over 2016. And in the category Best Airports by Global Region, North America, Montréal–Trudeau held on to its No. 10 ranking.
