While Montreal is not the actual capital of Quebec province in Canada, it is certainly the centre of culture and economy for Quebec.
Montreal is an extremely lively city with tons to do and see. Visitors should make sure to explore Old Montréal, the city centre area as well as Le Plateau. Keep in mind that some areas of the city are English speaking and some are primarily French speaking.
Montréal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport (airport code YUL), more commonly shortened to Montréal Trudeau, is the main airport for Montreal and most of Quebec. The airport is located 20 kilometres from the centre of Montreal.
It serves the third most people per year of any Canadian airport and acts as a hub for Air Canada (and regional subsidiary Air Canada Jazz), Air Transat, CanJet, and Sunwing Airlines. In a typical year the airport sees more than 200,000 flights arrive or depart. 42 airlines make regularly scheduled flights to or from the airport with about 20 more carriers, mostly charters, making irregular flights.
Air Canada operates the most frequent services from Montréal Trudeau, followed by Porter Airlines, Continental, United and Brazilian carrier TAM. Air Transat and Air Canada operate flights to the most destinations.
