Roberval Airport Car Rental

Just over two miles outside the city of Roberval in Quebec, Canada, Roberval airport (IATA: YRJ) features one 5,000ft runway which services around 6,000 flights per year from its asphalt surface. While this is a relatively small number of journeys compared to some other airports in Quebec, Roberval still finds itself as an important local transport hub for those in the area looking for connections to various other regional airports in the country.

The city of Roberval itself is found nestled on the south west shore of Lac Saint-Jean in the regional county of Le Domaine-du-Roy in Quebec. With a population of just under 11,000 it boasts the honour of being the third largest city on the lake, just behind Dolbeau-Mistassini and Alma, however it is the only city on the lake with its core found directly on the shore, making it a hot tourist attraction.

The city is home to an annual swimming competition where entrants attempt to cross Lake St-Jean over a distance of twenty miles. This further increases seasonal tourism to the area and Pascan Aviation provide regular flights to Havre Saint-Pierre, Montreal-Saint-Hubert, Sept Iles and Wabush airports from Roberval airport.

Public transport in the area is a little lacklustre, and many companies have taken it upon themselves to offer car hire services to the local area, as well as to any visitors entering the region via the airport. Many of these travellers opt to compare Roberval airport car hire before arrival to save money, but there are equal amounts of people who simply arrive and form an agreement there and then.
