Quebec City Airport now has two passenger terminals. (For more information open 'Terminal Map' and move down to the extensive text.
* Present and Future Airport Developments: The 'YQB 2018' Project is intended to double the Terminal area. It incorporates 14 separate projects, including apron expansion, additional passenger loading bridges, de-icing center, on-Airport hotel, some IT programs and overhaul of electrical systems). Upon project completion in 2018, the 'new' terminal is to house more baggage carousels for international flights, have a more user-friendly customs area, an expanded food court & restaurant areas, four new gates, state-of-the-art curbside & loading zone, and an enlarged baggage area. Integrated new technologies will enhance passenger experience and speed up passenger processing.
As the 'new terminal' part is to be attached to the northeast side of the 'old' terminal part, a section of the terminal will be out of service during construction. Boarding gates in this area were moved - passenger access is by a temporary, but fully functional 165 meter long access corridor leading to gates 33-37 until terminal completion in 2018. New emergency exits replaced the ones no longer accessible. The northeast wall of the terminal is being demolished, replaced by a temporary wall. The work site has been fenced off until completion.
As of May 2017: Some services in the current terminal - including duty-free shop, currency counter and convenience store - are moved into the new section. Upon completion of all work, the current international deparutres sector will house the future food fair.
