Flying from Washington Ronald Reagan to Montréal Pierre Elliott Trudeau
The route from Washington D.C. to Montréal is served by Air Canada Express alone. The trip takes 150 minutes nonstop, but if you don’t mind taking longer, you could try one of various connecting flights. You save a lot of money that way.
Here are tips to help you make the most of your trip.
Flying out of Washington Ronald Reagan National Airport
While most airports serving large cities tend to get poor reviews for crowds and efficiency, Washington Ronald Reagan is different. Reviews of the airport repeatedly stress the pleasant surprise that travelers tend to have of how efficient things tend to be. TSA security lines, for instance, tend to be long, but to move so quickly as to rarely take more than 15 minutes. Walking to your gate usually doesn’t take too long, either; it’s a small airport with only a few gates set close together. As long as you’re sure that you’re flying out of this airport, and not Dulles or Baltimore, and you have the right terminal (Terminal A serves Air Canada Express) there’s little about this airport that’s complicated.
While you can always use a taxi or a shared-ride van to get to the airport, the Metrorail to the airport is the fastest and cheapest way. You need to take the Silverline Express bus or a Metro bus to the Metrorail, and then take the train to the airport.
Arriving at Montréal Pierre Elliott Trudeau
Montréal airport, unfortunately, doesn’t work as efficiently as the one in Washington D.C. Going through immigration usually takes more than two hours, during which time you’re often held standing in a closed “pen.” There is usually no way for children, women who are pregnant other vulnerable people to be served quickly.
Getting into and out of the airport can be hard, as well, because of the heavy traffic. In all, it’s a good idea to keep in mind that you’ll need a lot of time to negotiate this airport. If you can possibly manage it, arriving late at night can save you a great deal of time (to make this choice, however, you’ll need to pick connecting flight, and not one of the nonstop Air Canada Express flights.
An Uber or other taxi is likely to be the least complicated way to get to the city. There are cheaper ways, however, if you are willing to put in a little thought, all you need to do is to find the stop for the 747 Express bus that only costs $10 take you to the city. The Air Connect airport shuttle is a good way to go, as well. Of course, you can always depend on your hotel for a complimentary shuttle. Look on Skyscanner for great deals.
