Bad weather and delays

3 déneigeuses 2008-800x534.jpg

In case of bad weather and problematic meteorological conditions, the airlines operating out of Montréal–Trudeau airport are responsible, first and foremost, for deciding whether or not to cancel their flights. Some do so ahead of time — the day before a storm, for example — while others prefer to wait until the day of the storm before making this decision. For this reason, any questions about flight cancellations and resumptions must be directed to them.

Please note that unless there is a storm or a severe weather situation at Montréal–Trudeau, weather conditions are not considered by airport authorities to be an emergency.

Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) does, however, make a variety of tools available to help you in this type of situation.


Number of flights cancelled or delayed


For real-time flight status and the number of cancelled or delayed flights, simply visit the Departures and arrivals section, then click on the column heading “Status”. This will group all the flights that are on time, delayed or cancelled and will enable you to easily determine the status of flights at the airport in real-time.

Please note that there may be flight cancellations due to reasons other than the weather.
