    At Pierre Trudeau Airport (formerly Dorval Airport), the terminal has been redesigned and improved to try and make things more efficient.

    Domestic flights (ones from other parts of Canada) will arrive at the east end of the terminal building, while international flights are located at the west end of the building in the new section. In between the two, you have flights that arrive and depart for US cities.

    The arrivals area is located on the ground (1st) floor, while the departures are on the upper (2nd) floor.

    If you are coming by car to pick up a passenger (your husband), you really have only two choices:

    1) Agree to meet your husband outside on the arrivals causeway. He grabs his luggage, walks out the terminal doors, crosses one roadway where the buses and taxis are, and waits in the middle walkway. You arrive by car, scan the walkway area for your husband, stop, pick him and the luggage up, and head on your way. The good thing about this is that there are no fees. The bad thing is if you arrive early or his flight is late, you may be driving around in circles trying to spot him because the airport security will force you to move can't park there and wait for more than a minute or two.

    2) Go into the short-term parking garage area and find a spot to park. Get out and go in, then wait next to the baggage claim area (domestic flights), or just outside the border services security zone for him to walk out and greet you. You then both walk back to the car, throw his luggage in the trunk, and validate your parking receipt. Unfortunately, the parking costs at the airport are extremely expensive. Expect to pay $4 for every 20 minutes you wait, up to a maximum of $40 per day. So definitely do not arrive too early!

    Montreal airport is not very large. There are 2 arrival areas. Once for domestic flights and one for international flights. You can simply ask anyone working at the airport and they will direct you to the right spot. It is quite easy to navigate.

    Arrivals are on the bottom level departures are on the top level.

    Be sure to wait for him at the right terminal. Domestic and international flights are not at the same place.
