Here at YUL, we are committed to provide airport facilities that are adapted to the needs of people with disabilities or limited mobility.
Wheelchairs are available at the information counter located on the departures level for use by people with limited mobility visiting the airport. If you are boarding a flight, please contact your airline for a wheelchair.
Information counters, check-in counters, self-service check-in kiosks, public pay telephones and automated teller machines (ATMs) are accessible to wheelchair users.
During your passage at the pre-boarding security checkpoint, you will find a line which is reserved for people with limited mobility. If you need assistance, please inform the screening officer when you arrive at the checkpoint. Tell the screening officer if you are not able to go through the walk-through metal detector unassisted. He or she will suggest other solutions.
There are access ramps, elevators and moving sidewalks available to facilitate movement inside the terminal. The electric carts service is also offered to passengers who want it after security checkpoint, in the international, mixed and transborder jetties up to the boarding gate (departures level)
Wheelchair users can enter all shops and restaurants in the terminal. Bars and VIP lounges have lowered sections for wheelchair users. You will find drinking water fountains, suitable for wheelchair users. Reserved seating is also available in the boarding lounges.
When an aircraft is parked far from the terminal, passenger transfer vehicles are available to transport people with limited mobility between the plane and the terminal. Arrangements must be made by the carrier.
Passengers requiring assistance between the drop-off area and the check-in counter (departures level) and between the public area and the pick-up area (arrivals area) may receive assistance by following this procedure.
