Efforts Underway to Address Congestion Challenges at Montreal-Trudeau International
Earlier this week, a meeting was convened in Dorval, which saw the participation of leadership from Aéroports de Montréal, Air Canada, WestJet, Air Transat, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, the Canada Border Services Agency, NAV Canada, and Transport Canada. The primary objective of this gathering was to identify and implement short-term solutions to alleviate the congestion issues at the airport.
One of the main discussion areas revolved around enhancing information sharing among the partners. This collaborative approach aims to streamline operations, especially during peak travel periods, ensuring smoother passenger flow and reduced wait times.
Rodriguez expressed empathy towards travelers, acknowledging the frustration caused by delays and cancellations. He emphasized that Canadians invest time and resources in planning their travels and rightfully expect a seamless experience. "Canadians work hard to save up to travel and expect airlines, airports, and their partners to do better. In this meeting, we agreed that we all have to step up for Canadians," stated Rodriguez.
As part of the ongoing commitment to improve the travel experience, Transport Canada and its partners will continue to explore opportunities for service enhancement and are dedicated to finding practical solutions to the challenges faced by travelers at the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
