Perhaps HIA's most salient feature is its location. Ideally situated between Toronto and Buffalo, HIA is within 500 miles (1 day's trucking) of major metropolitan centres both in Canada and the U.S. There are 3.5 million consumers alone within a 60 minute drive of the airport.
Plattsburgh International -- MONTREAL'S U.S. AIRPORT -- was created from the massive facilities of the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base, and is now a multi-modal aviation & aerospace park offering opportunities for air service, cargo, manufacturing, maintenance & more. Just 1 hour from Montreal, it includes a 12,000' runway & a 12 million SF ramp for cargo and aircraft.
