The Government of Quebec is providing financial assistance of $299,575 to the Mont-Tremblant-La Macaza International Airport to support its ongoing airport activities, while aiming to help maintain regional air services.
“Our government is working to provide air services over our vast territory. Linking regions together is good for tourism and good for our economy. Investing in our airports means investing in our regions,” said Geneviève Guilbault, Deputy Premier and Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility.
The Government of Quebec also granted initial financial assistance of $567,836 to Mont-Tremblant-La Macaza International back in September 2021.
“The pandemic has forced the suspension of Air Canada and Porter Airlines flights. Adding to this the suspension of our customs service, which blocks all our international flights, the airport’s revenues have shrunk by almost 90 per cent during this difficult period,” said Serge Larivière, President of Mont-Tremblant International Airport. “The assistance of the Ministère des Transports et de la Mobilité durable first made it possible to ensure the survival of a strategic infrastructure for our region. It will now allow us to relaunch our operations.”
