Montréal airport, called the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau Airport – code YUL, is one of the easiest airports to reach in North America. Unlike most airports, YUL is already on the Island of Montréal and 25 minutes from the downtown area. In 2017, it is estimated that 18,2 million passengers passed through Montréal-Trudeau Airport.

If you are flying for the Pre-General Assembly in Québec city, you can look for flights that land at Québec airport, the Jean-Lesage International Airport (code YQB).

Transportation on Arrival Day

On August 2nd, we will supply a ticket for the local bus service, the 747, which will bring you right in front of the venue in 25 minutes. Our welcome committee at the airport will make sure you have your free ticket and that you get out at the right stop. The same ticket will be used during the evening to get to the opening ceremony.

If you arrive a bit before the General Assembly, please note that the 747 runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is the best and cheapest way to get to downtown Montréal. Otherwise, a taxi would be around $40,00 CAD (fixed fare).
