Porter Airlines is partnering with Macquarie Asset Management (MAM) to support development of the new passenger terminal at Montréal Saint-Hubert Airport (YHU).
Construction PCL (PCL) has also been selected as the general contractor for the passenger terminal. Work will commence in August, with a scheduled completion by mid-2025.
The passenger terminal is designed to be 21,000 sq.m. (225,000 sq.ft.) with nine bridged aircraft gates, and an overall modern design aesthetic. There will be lounge-style seating for all passengers and access to food and beverage concessions, as well as retail vendors. All building systems are expected to operate fully on electric power. Design is by Scott Associates Architects.
“Macquarie and PCL are well-positioned as partners to develop a state-of-the-art passenger terminal at Saint-Hubert,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO, PAHI. “These relationships further strengthen the project and will result in a distinct terminal where passengers will genuinely enjoy their experience.”
The new terminal will serve as a second airport for Porter Airlines in the Montréal market. The airline will continue to expand its operations at Montréal’s Trudeau Airport (YUL), while also introducing a Canada-wide network at YHU. The new terminal will be able to serve more than 4 million passengers annually.
“We are thrilled to embark on this groundbreaking project with Porter and Macquarie Asset Management, leveraging our local expertise and client-centered commitment to excellence,” remarked Sébastien Tremblay, vice president and district manager for Construction PCL in Québec. “We firmly believe that this collaboration will pave the way for substantial growth and development within Québec’s aviation sector.”
Montréal Saint-Hubert Airport is proud to welcome Porter Airlines, according to Yanic Roy, managing director, Montréal-Saint-Hubert Airport. “With an ambitious fleet plan, latest generation aircraft and an established airport management track record, Porter is the perfect match for the Montréal Saint-Hubert Airport.
