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.

Required advance passenger information

In an effort to increase security in the area of international air travel, many countries have instituted an Advance Passenger Information System (APIS/API) that affects most international flights.

APIS/API

APIS is an automated data collection system capable of performing queries on air passengers prior to their arrival into an applicable country.

U.S. flights: In addition to information required for most international flights, you need to provide:

  • Complete street address (including zip code) where you will be staying while in the U.S.
  • If you are connecting to a cruise ship: the name of the vessel and the city/state of point of embarkation

How is the passenger data collected?

The data is collected by the air carrier during the check-in process and submitted electronically to Customs prior to the passenger's arrival at their destination.

When is the passenger information provided to Customs?

Air carriers must submit passenger information within fifteen minutes after the aircraft departs.
