Montreal-Trudeau Airport Combats Extreme Weather

Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) has invested more than USD6 million to prepare for this winter season, after Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport faced an average annual snowfall of 220 cm and 13 episodes of freezing rain in 2017.

Vehicles at the end of their service life have been replaced, and the purchase of new equipment, are optimising operations and minimising the impact of precipitation.

Due to longer and more frequent periods of freezing rain, ADM proceeded to add spreaders and spreader trucks to its maintenance vehicle fleet, also acquiring additional equipment such as a large loader and three front-end loaders.

“Major fluctuations in winter weather conditions are forcing us to review our ways of doing things and refine our techniques,” said Sylvain Marchand, assistant director, ground maintenance and mobile equipment, Montreal Trudeau Airport.
