VANCOUVER — Discount airline Canada Jetlines Ltd. says it plans to base its Montreal operations out of a small airport that is undergoing an expansion.

Montreal Saint-Hubert Longueuil Airport on the south shore of the city is expected to support ultra low-cost airlines by early 2020.

The airport which mainly serves private aircraft recently upgraded its runway, supported by a $13-million federal contribution. It also plans to build a new passenger terminal.

Canada Jetlines CEO Javier Suarez says Montreal travellers deserve low-cost air travel options that don’t require them to cross the U.S. border.

Rival discount carrier Flair Airlines says it is reviewing options for the Quebec market and hasn’t made a firm commitment to any airport in the province.
