Subject: Notice to passengers – New configuration of the restricted zone at YUL

Effective April 3rd, 2019, the area located immediately after the domestic/international security screening checkpoint at YUL will be divided into two distinct zones:

• The international zone (international flights only);
• Mixed departures zone (domestic flights and certain international flights).

Only passengers taking a flight assigned to the international zone will be able to access this zone. A new boarding pass checkpoint will be installed just before the duty free shop. Once travellers have passed through this new checkpoint to the international zone, they will no longer be able to go back, unfortunately.

This space configuration, which has already existed in the past, will increase the efficiency of international connections and, consequently, maintain and enhance YUL’s air service, especially to fast-growing markets.

Aéroports de Montréal will maintain a smooth flow of traffic in this zone and also ensure the safety and security of the facilities in order to offer quality airport services to passengers.
