The article surveys the facilities and plans for the new Mirabel Airport in Montreal which opened in late 1975. In terms of the amount of real-estate expropriated (for airport grounds proper and for control of land under air access routes), Mirabel rates as one of the worlds largest airport developments, serving Montreal which is a major inland waterway part. Elimination of nesting areas in the vicinity of the airport will minimize bird injection problems. The access road network and the airport land allocations (runways, taxiways, terminal area, aprons) are described. Detachable (mobile) gates and other passenger-handling facilities are heated, in addition to passenger-processing facilities within the terminal. Sucessive expansion phases though the year 2020 are envisaged in existing plans and allowed for by the extensive land acquisition program.
