SkyTeam partners Air France and KLM are selling cheap flights to Montreal from various airports in Portugal and Spain, such as Porto, Lisbon, and Madrid. Luggage is only included if you’re a SkyTeam Elite frequent flyer. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay €130 more if you wish to bring 23 kg of luggage, additionally to the 12 kg of hand luggage that are always included.
Our calendar displays all available dates from those three airports. Select your preferred route and dates, and we’ll redirect you to KLM’s booking site:
The flights always have one short layover – either in Paris if you fly Air France or in Amsterdam if you fly KLM. Air France uses an Airbus A350 (3-3-3 seat alignment) for its flights to Montreal, while KLM uses an Airbus A330 (2-4-2 seat alignment). Personally, I believe that KLM’s 2-4-2 economy class is the better choice.
Search & Book
We’ve displayed all available dates from Lisbon, Porto, and Madrid in our calendar above. The fare rules state that your trip has to be at least 6 days long or include a Sunday.

Information & Tips for Montreal
While Quebec City is the political capital of the province of Quebec, Montreal is the economic and cultural center. At the same time, it is the second largest city in Canada!
Flights to Montreal
Just like Toronto, Montreal is a pretty cheap destination for flights. Air Canada flies non-stop to Frankfurt/Main and Lufthansa flies non-stop from Munich to Montreal. In addition, there are many other connecting flights with stopovers in Europe or Toronto (mostly with Air Canada) as well as via the USA. Return flights for around 300€ (only hand luggage, checked luggage mostly 80-100€ surcharge) are a common sight. However, you should avoid the school holidays – especially the summer holidays! During this period, airfares quickly rise to over 500€ and reach highs of up to 1.000€ for a direct flight in economy class. Do not expect good deals during this time.
Best Time to Travel
The best times to visit Montreal are from March to May or from September to November. Thanks to comparatively mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine, these months are best suited for tourism. If you want to experience the Canadian winter you can also visit between December and February, but at this time you have to deal with weather restrictions.
From the Airport to the City Center
By taxi you pay a fare of $40CAD (approx. 27€) between the airport and the city centre. With the STM Airport Express (bus number 747) you pay $10CAD (approx. 6,70€) – the ticket is also valid on citywide public transit for 24 hours. The travel times by taxi as well as by bus depend strongly on the traffic and can take more than one hour during peak times.
