Aéroport Montréal St-Hubert Longueuil inaugurates upgraded runway

Aéroport Montréal Saint-Hubert Longueuil is proud to inaugurate its primary runway, following a major upgrade that will enable it to accommodate larger aircraft, such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A220/320.

The improvement marks the beginning of an ambitious development strategy that will see Aéroport Montréal Saint-Hubert Longueuil become a regional air transport hub in Quebec, offering affordable, high-quality air transport services to South Shore and Montérégie residents.

Conducted in accordance with rigorous Transport Canada standards, the runway reconstruction was made possible through an investment of $17 million, more than $13 million of which was provided by the Canadian Government Airports Capital Assistance Program (ACAP).

“Our aim is to make Aéroport Montréal Saint-Hubert Longueuil the airport of choice for regional travellers who are flying into and out of Montreal.

We also want to establish air transport services for a range of destinations to benefit South Shore and Montérégie residents and business people, while working in tandem with the other airports in the Greater Montreal Region.

Because of its proximity to major roadways, rail services and public transit, our airport is ideally aligned with Longueuil’s Vision 2025 for Public Transit,” said Charles Vaillancourt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Aéroport Montréal Saint-Hubert Longueuil.
