New flight patterns being proposed for jets flying into Montreal Trudeau International Airport

September 21, 2011 - Changes planned for 2012 could mean differences that will be heard by homeowners in Ste. Anne and Senneville

The new arrival routes are expected to reduce jet fuel-burn by 5.4 million litres annually and greenhouse gas emissions by 14,300 metric tonnes while making flying safer. The changes are part of a wider overhaul of the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal corridor.

However, the new arrival routes will mean various parts of Montreal Island unaccustomed to air traffic will end up with more planes flying overhead, in some cases, at an elevation of 3,000 to 6,000 metres.

"That's why we have put out detailed maps," said Ron Singer, a NAV Canada spokesperson. "If you know where you live ... you can determine how the changes could affect you."

Residents with concerns about the new routes have until Sept. 30 to file comments online with NAV Canada.
