Come on guys. Enjoy the moment. This is all great news, let’s not dwell on what ifs. New Yorkers and Torontonians would be asking if it’s enough not if it’s too much and you know we should be too. Why isn’t cargo brought back from Mirabel?  Why is there no internal monorail to get people between the farthest piers? Why is the US concourse not expanded? Why isn’t the current 1960s main terminal not being updated or replaced with a more efficient layout? We should be more demanding not less. It’s what pushes societies forward and makes them leading cities in the world. I want Montreal & YUL to take back top spot Canada and this is as good a start as any to begin.

By that time it will be better to invest in high speed rail in the Quebec-Windsor corridor, as well as to NYC and Boston, freeing up capacity at the airport. 

Exactly!

Traffic congestion tolls would also shift some car users toward those new high speed rail service...

It looks like the landslide work (ramp, parking area) will see the terminal extended in the front:  arrivals levels and departures level clearly looks expanded in the rendering.  But the renderings are so preliminary... not doubt what was announced yesterday will be finely tuned over the course of the next several months.   Remember, the front of the airport, is going to get the investment first so we will be seeing changes pretty soon, I would imagine.

One thing, this has to be one of the largest covered parking lots in the world.

Walking from one end to the other will take some time.

Imagine coming back from a week long vacation, will you remember where you parked?

It's 500m from the terminal to the end of the parking. So a 5 min walk if you're way out there...

Just take a pic of your parking spot number?

Marie-France Bazzo dit c'est une grosse erreur d'investir à Dorval.  Trop près des résidences.  C'est le résultat de lobbying.  On ne peut pas créer le grand aéroport comme les autres villes. On doit construire par l'intérieur.   Tous les grands aéroports du monde sont éloigné de la ville. On va frapper un mur avant longtemps. Elle dit que personne pose les bonnes questions.

Sound familiar?

Qui se stationne vraiment en longue durée dans le stationnement étagé anyway? À 210$ par semaine veut mieux utiliser les Econoparc pour la moitié du prix...

      It is going to be a Beijing-Montreal-Havana flight.
      Shanghai will not be covered.
       
      Apparently, there are solid negotiations going on for direct flights to Poland and Iceland from YUL.

      Air Algérie has been ordered to pay back €11.22 million to Canadian SMI International
       
      Air Algérie, the Algerian national airline has been ordered to pay back 1.5 billion Algerian Dinars (11.22 million Euros) 1 to the Canadian group SMI International, the International Court of Arbitration of Canada (ICC) has decided. The airline now has until Thursday to comply with the judgement and pay the requested amount, if not the airline may face its Airbus A330 aircraft being seized in Canada.
      It’s not the first time that an Air Algérie aircraft was seized: in 2014 a Belgian court seized an aircraft at Brussels Airport, sparking a diplomatic row between Algeria, Belgium and The Netherlands. Finally Air Algérie paid a sum of € 2 million dollars to a Dutch company.
      The dispute concerns the construction of the new Air Algérie headquarters located in Dar El Beida, just next to the old headquarters of Mobilis and worth an investment of €100 million. Back in 2013 Air Algérie canceled the contract with SMI for “non-performance, not completing the project on time and failure of the contractor”. In fact the Lebanese design office Khatib and Alami did not deliver the final version of the correct construction plans until March 2012, only one year from the expiration of the deadlines.
      While SMI requested an extension of the deadline and asked Air Algérie to pay €17.8 million for unpaid work and materials, the latter unilaterally decided to end the contract.
      Air Algérie, already weakened by the economic situation of the country, may now face its new Airbus A330 being seized in Canada.
