Subject: Departures: Arrive 3 hours in advance
Work is under way at the security checkpoint for international and domestic departures.
Arrive at least 3 hours before your scheduled departure and go through the security checkpoint as soon as you have completed your check-in formalities.
To make your time at the airport more pleasant, here is some advice:
One week before departure
Reserve your parking space
You can reserve your parking space online directly. In addition to speeding things up, it saves you up to 15%!
Two days before departure
Properly prepared luggage makes the security check much easier:
Visit the CATSA (Canadian Air Transport Security Authority) website
You are strongly urged to check the complete list of items allowed or prohibited by CATSA. Keep this link handy!
Check on adapted services

The day before departure
Check in online
Most airlines operating at Montréal–Trudeau let you check in online up to 24 hours in advance.
Download the YULi app

Text your flight number to 23636
You’ll instantly receive by text message (SMS) the current status of your flight or an alert for any schedule change of more than 10 minutes.
The day of departure
Before leaving home, make sure you have all your travel documents handy: airline tickets, valid passport, visa, etc.
To avoid setting off the alarm at the walk-through metal detector, avoid wearing belts with big buckles, large items of jewelry, clothing with metal buttons, etc.
We also recommend that you wear easy-to-remove shoes, just in case.
Getting to the airport
Since you have to arrive at least three hours in advance, it’s essential to plan the best way to get to the airport.
Check our website to find out about the various options: the 747 shuttle, taxis, limousines, Uber or Car2Go.
If you’re coming by car, remember to check roadwork information.
Use the self-service check-in kiosks
These are another good way to avoid lineups at traditional check-in counters. Note that luggage must be dropped off before you go through security.
Prepare to go through security
Once you’ve completed your check-in and dropped off your luggage, go through the security checkpoint.
Upon your return
Go through customs more quickly:
Note that your checked luggage is collected after the border control.
