Repairs to the main runway of Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB)

Please note that because of repairs done to the main runway of Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), our aviation operations may be affected by weather factors beyond our control. The reduced size of the runway limits the use of certain types of aircraft during bad weather and may require changes to our operations.

If operations of scheduled flights between Montreal and Quebec City are disrupted for these reasons, passengers will be offered transportation by road.

Work to allow a return to our normal operations will be completed on August 10.

Please note that due to a scheduled maintenance on our system between 11:00pm and 5:00am, some functionalities or content may not be available during this period.

Please contact our Booking Centre.

Thank you for your understanding.
