CANADA: Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) President and CEO Philippe Rainville has announced major infrastructure works to meet the growing passenger demands.

Over the next eight years there are plans to rebuild the multilevel parking garage across from the terminal and the passenger drop off area. Planning of these projects will also include the connection to the REM light rail network. According to Rainville, starting next year the work will begin to add the underground station 35 meters below the multilevel parking.

"Montréal will at last join the ranks of world metropolises that have fast, efficient transit links with their international airports," Rainville said. "At the current rate, Montréal–Trudeau airport will see traffic growth of more than 7% in 2018, and this after posting record growth in passenger numbers of 9.5% in 2017."

The plans also include airside improvement works. In total the projects will require investment of at least $2.5 billion over the next five years.
