Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (IATA: YUL), formerly Montréal–Dorval International Airport, on the Island of Montreal some 12 miles from downtown Montreal, Canada.

Formerly known as Montréal–Dorval International Airport, Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (Aéroport international Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau de Montréal) is an international airport serving the Greater Montreal region named after Canada's 15th prime minister.

It's located about 20km from downtown and is an Air Canada hub airport. It's the busiest airport in Quebec and the fourth-busiest in Canada by passenger traffic and by aircraft movements, with 14.8 million passengers. It is one of eight Canadian airports with United States border preclearance.

Several public transport lines serve as a shuttle between the airport and the city, but in recent years the STM introduced the 747 which is a daily year-round dedicated shuttle.
