Lounge presentation: the only transborder terminal

At Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, YUL, there is an Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in the international terminal and several other lounges, including the National Bank World Mastercard Lounge, available to Priority Pass members.

Within the transborder terminal, there is only one: the Maple Leaf lounge of Air Canada. Unfortunately – or fortunately say those who can enter – this one is not accessible to Priority Pass members.
