Renowned for its European inspired architecture, famed for its fine cuisine and loved by all for its nightlife, Montreal remains one of North America's most vibrant cities.
Flights to Montreal are serviced through the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau Airport (YUL). Numerous airlines service Montreal flights to Africa, Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, the United States, Mexico and destinations within Canada. Travellers looking for cheap flights should look south of the border to Plattsburgh, specifically the Plattsburgh International Airport, located only one hour from Montreal.
If travel to Montreal is on your mind, you don't have to be scared of communicating with the locals. Although Montreal is the largest French speaking city in North America, a significant percentage of the population speaks English... magnifique!
When you arrive, there is a lot to see and do. Montreal is a great walking city, so after you arrive, head to Mount Royal Park for a tour of the mountain and stunning views of the city. For the sports enthusiast, the city has much to offer, including the NHL's most storied franchise, the Montreal Canadiens, the winners of 24 Stanley Cup's. The CFL made a successful return to Montreal in 1997, with the Alouettes once again taking flight.
There is perhaps nowhere else on earth where you will be subjected to Mother Nature's seasonal advances, quite like in Montreal. Fans of all four seasons will laud the warm summers, while outdoor enthusiasts can take flight down one of the nearby ski hills in winter.
As a major city in Canada, flights to Montreal are widely available on various airlines. Check Travelzoo often to find the best airline tickets and hotel deals.
