The Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) is investing $90 million in the new domestic passenger terminal at MET – Montreal Metropolitan Airport (YHU), formerly known as the Saint-Hubert Airport.
Work on the new terminal – a partnership between Macquarie Asset Management and Porter Airlines– will begin in August, with a scheduled completion by mid-2025.
Located 15 kilometres from Montreal, Montreal Metropolitan Airport will be a nine-gate facility, designed to serve more than four million passengers annually, according to a news release.
Additional facilities will include barrier-free parking spaces, EV charging stations, shuttle bus pick-up and drop-off points, road connection from the property boundary to long-term parking lots, landscaping, and an aviation fuel farm.
As previously reported, Porter will operate at MET using a combination of Embraer E195-E2 and Dash 8-400 aircraft, serving cities across Canada.
The new terminal will be open to other airlines, too, including Pascan Aviation's network of existing regional Quebec flights.
“Attracting a strong partner like CIB demonstrates the value and appeal of the terminal development at Montréal Metropolitan Airport,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter, in a statement on Tuesday (Feb. 6). “It will become a showcase of transportation infrastructure for the region that serves the community for decades to come.”
