Porter Airlines to partner in development of a new terminal at Montreal Saint-Hubert airport

Porter Airlines announced today that they have entered into a partnership with Montréal Saint-Hubert Airport to develop a new terminal. It is expected that construction will start later this year and be completed in late 2024. Click here to learn more.

Porter will continue expanding its existing operations at Montréal’s Trudeau Airport (YUL), while also introducing a Canada-wide network at the convenient YHU airport. More than 10 potential YHU routes have been initially identified, spanning from Vancouver in the west to St. John’s, N.L., in the east. The airline also intends to connect YHU with both of its Toronto hubs – Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). This will provide Porter with the most compelling and convenient flight offering between Canada’s two largest cities. Routes will be served with a combination of 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 and 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

Terminal overview:

  • Modern design aesthetic, featuring natural light and high-quality materials
  • 21,000 sq. m. (225,000 sq. ft.)
  • 9 bridged aircraft gates
  • Lounge-style seating for all passengers
  • Food and beverage concessions, and retail vendors
  • A Net-Zero facility with all building systems to fully operate on electric power
  • State-of-the-art passenger and baggage processing, and security installations

There is only one day left in our challenge! We were hoping to reach 1,000 entries for Canada, 250 for the US and 250 for ROW but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. Still, feel free to submit as many locations as you like and if you don’t want to search if we have it listed just submit all the locations you know of – we’ll do the proper sorting and eliminate any duplicates. And a big thank you to everyone who has contributed during the challenge and over the 6+ years we have been tracking the locations!
