New York Airports Information
John F. Kennedy International Airport
JFK is one of the busiest passenger airports in the world, so it's recommended that you arrive at least three hours before the flight is scheduled. Delta flights to Montreal from New York depart from Terminal 4 while American flies out of Terminal 8. The airport is easily accessible via the AirTrain, which costs $5 for a single trip and connects directly to the New York subway system.
Air Canada and American Airlines both operate out of Terminal B, while Delta operates its flights to Montreal out of Terminal C. There's no access to the New York subway at the airport, but city buses run directly to the terminals and provide access from Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan. Taxis or ride-sharing apps are also an efficient way to get to LaGuardia. It's worth noting that most of the cheapest flights fly out of LaGuardia.
Newark International Airport
Newark may be located across the river in New Jersey, but it's easily accessible to New York via the Newark AirTrain and the PATH system, which services Newark and Manhattan. United departs from Terminal C and Air Canada leaves from Terminal A.

What You Need to Know
All international flights from the U.S. require a current passport. Once in Montreal, the Immigration Service queue can be skipped by using the Automated Border Clearance kiosks, provided the traveller has a Canadian passport, is a permanent resident of Canada, or is a U.S. citizen. While many people in Montreal speak English, French is the official language of the city.
What to Expect in Montreal
Montreal is a city known for its great food, so stopping at a restaurant such as Schwartz's Jewish Deli, which uses fresh local produce, is almost essential. If travelling in the winter, be sure to stop by Montreal En Lumiere, a food and drink festival featuring several events that showcase the food culture of the city. Montreal is also home to the Montreal Canadiens, the NHL team with the greatest number of Stanley Cup wins in the league, so be sure to check out a home game at the Bell Centre.
