Montreal Metropolitan Airprot

Following the recent rebranding of Montreal Saint-Hubert Airport to MET – Montreal Metropolitan Airport, Alstef Group has now been awarded the contract for the new Baggage Handling System (BHS) at the air transport hub. The rebranding of the airport marks a purposeful shift.

The rebranding of the airport marks a purposeful shift, as the air transport hub transitions into a commercial aviation hub, with the construction of its $200 million terminal slated to open by the end of 2025.  The BHS project is integral to this transition and was awarded to Alstef by construction firm PCL and includes 28 check-in conveyors, a collector conveyor and an out-of-gauge line. The addition of CTX 9800 Explosives Detection Systems, high-capacity makeup carousels and airline sortation aims to streamline operations and enhance the passenger experience. The inbound system comprises two flat-plate carousels.

“Alstef Group’s extensive track record in CATSA screening upgrade projects across Canada gave the airport full confidence in our proposal,” said Regional Sales Manager, Gary Kane. “We anticipate forging a long-lasting partnership with YHU Infrastructure Partners [the terminal operator responsible for the $200m investment in the new facility] drawing from our extensive 20+ year history of successful collaborations in the region.”
