Canada really knows how to provide a weekend full of festivities with the vibrant culture of Montreal city and Formula One madness. Being the host to the event since 1996, the Canadian Grand Prix is among the biggest international sporting event in North America since its inception in the year 1961.

Being the centre of various motor events like FIA Worlds Sportscar Championship, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal is all set to entertain the enthusiasts of Formula One by inviting locals and oversees alike to witness the 2020 edition of F1 Canadian Grand Prix.

With the capacity of 100,000 spectators in its grandstands, the city has witnessed over a third of a million people spread around the circuit when the mega event has taken place. Since the interest for Grand Prix has surpassed the limited availability of aviation ground in Montreal, route analysis, aviation flight planning and other aspects of departure becomes of crucial consideration.

Flightworx specialises in lightening the load of both pilots and third-party flight planners. Its 24/7 operations’ team is the best choice for landing permit advice, aircraft planning and other related services for a hassle-free experience.

With multi-lingual staff who are passionate about aviation and hold years of experience in all aspects of flight support, Flightworx will ensure timely arrival at the destination to witness the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix.

Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (CYUL) and Montreal Saint-Hubert Longueuil Airport (CYHU) are the two most relevant airports to land for attendees of the event. CYUL, the primary international airport serving Montreal, is the most popular place to land for anyone attending the race.

Apart from three runways, pre-clearance services for visitors from the United States, the airport is just 20 minutes away from the circuit hosting the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix.

CYHU, on the other hand, is only able to process general aviation aircraft of up to 15 passengers, which limits its usefulness for larger carriers. Situated in the east of the racetrack, it requires attendees to travel a short journey of around 15 minutes by road to reach their destination. However, the airport can serve as an advantage for planning inbound flights of smaller aircraft during the race weekend.

Other options to land include the Montréal–Mirabel International Airport (CYMX), a former passenger hub that can be booked on a 24-hour basis with enough advance warning. Another option is the Saint-Jean Airport (CYJN), situated 45 minutes afar from Central Montreal offering only basic ground handling management.

Flightworx, with loads of experience in flight management and support, would be able to serve both flight operators and visitors of the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix. Its around-the-clock support addresses all aviation needs and helps optimise aircraft operations while complying to the international and industry standards at the highest level.
