Top things to do in Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport Airport
Relax, dine and unwind in style
Whether you’re passing through on business or looking for a classy way to start your vacation in the sun, the YQB VIP Lounge is the perfect place to relax in comfort and luxury.
Inside, you get access to a well-stocked bar and a list of meals made with the finest ingredients. You’re given an iPad and a range of newspapers to keep you up-to-date with the latest news. Meanwhile, the comfortable seating, central fireplace and plasma TV screens make the lounge feel like a home away from home.
If you need to get on with work away from the office, go the ‘Business Center’ and use the computers, telephones, fax machines, photocopiers and shredders. Flight status monitors are dotted throughout the lounge and business center to make sure that you can relax or get down to business without fear of missing your plane or announcements of delays or cancelations.
Enjoy a morning pick-me-up, Canadian style
Only the Netherlands and Finland reportedly drink more coffee than Canada. For this reason, it’s only right that a substantial list of fresh coffees is available to give you a boost whenever you need it at Quebec City Airport.
The Tim Hortons restaurant is named after its founder and former NHL star, Tim Horton, and it has strong links with Canadian culture, as reflected in its menu and its decor. This restaurant is located on the second floor (landside) and is open 24 hours a day.
Get your family vacation off to a flying start
If the thought of spending time in a busy airport with kids is making you anxious, you’ll be glad to know that the YQB Family Zone is located close to the security checkpoint. You’ll find a children’s play area to occupy the kids while you take the weight off your feet.
A nursing room can be found close to the play area. This room is equipped with a changing table and sink for cleaning up and a microwave for warming up milk or other food.
Try plane-spotting under cover
Quebec City Airport has a plane observation area in the Tim Hortons restaurant on the second floor. The fact that the observation area is inside means you can indulge in plane-spotting at any time of year, which is great news considering the cold and snow that hits Quebec City every winter.
With excellent views of both runways, the kids will love watching the airliners take off and land, while you tuck into your food.
Buy designer bargains or last-minute snacks
There are only two retail stores at YQB: Relay and the duty free outlet. Despite this, you’ll find a wide array of high-street names and designer brands at the open-plan duty free store.
These include perfumes, bags, sunglasses, make-up and skincare products. You can also find great prices on tobacco, alcohol and more. When shopping there, be sure to keep within the Canadian customs allowances.
For those last-minute travel essentials and other handy items, Relay stocks a wide range of snack foods, confectionary, magazines, newspapers, books, notepads, pens, cold and flu medications and more.
Make use of fast, free WiFi
One of the most impressive things about Quebec City Airport is the free, high-speed WiFi to which you have access throughout the terminal building around the clock. Whether you’d like to chat online, read the news or watch videos without using up your data, you can do so at YQB without any issues.
