If you’re flying today, check with the Trudeau airport site or your airline before heading there.
Aéroports de Montréal tweeted just after 9 a.m. that Trudeau airport’s “U.S. baggage system” operations were “progressively back,” inviting travellers to check with airlines before heading to the airport.
It updated at 9:49 saying the “baggage system no longer down. Operations normal,” but it’s probably still a good idea to check before heading out.
Just after 7 a.m., the AdM reported that the system was down, causing flight delays and traveller outbursts on social media, like Steven Meitin, who complained of a “total lack of communication on status of what they are doing to resolve.”
Starting at approximately 5 a.m., U.S.-bound flights had been delayed but the backlog of flights began easing at around 8 a.m., public affairs spokesperson Marie-Claude Desgagnés said.
The Trudeau airport site’s departures page show many early morning flights have departed, but many are still marked “Delayed.” Go to admtl.com/en/flights/departures or contact your airline before heading to Trudeau airport for a flight this morning.
