May 2, 2024 | 2 min reading time

Today, St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) welcomes the start of Air Canada’s seasonal service to Quebec, Canada’s Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL). The summer 2024 service will provide the St. Louis region with an outbound flight to Montreal each day at 11 a.m. The inbound flight will arrive from Montreal each evening just after 9 p.m. Both flights will operate out of STL’s Concourse A in Terminal 1. This service complements Air Canada’s current daily non-stop service to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) in Ontario, Canada.

“It is great news to have Air Canada service to Montreal,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, STL Airport Director. “Montreal is a premier North American destination and Air Canada recognizes the strength of our region with this new service.”

“We are very pleased to launch this new non-stop route to Montreal from St. Louis, complementing our existing service to Toronto,” said Mark Galardo, Executive Vice President, Revenue and Network Planning, at Air Canada. “This additional service will further reaffirm Air Canada’s position as the leading carrier between Canada and the United States. With this daily service, travellers from St. Louis now have direct access to one of Canada’s most vibrant cities, Montreal. This service is also designed to connect St. Louis with our vast and growing international network through our Montreal hub.”
