WestJet Announces New Non-Stop Flights from YVR to Halifax

Hooray for Halifax! WestJet has just announced new seasonal non-stop service between Halifax Stanfield International Airport and YVR starting June 29, 2016. This is the only non-stop service between Halifax and Vancouver and also becomes the longest domestic route available from YVR at about 4,500 kilometres.

WestJet already offers 65 daily flights on 29 routes flying out of YVR, but this new flight will offer passengers the only direct connection to the Maritimes, a fantastic summer destination for families and adventurers alike. Haligonians can also now travel direct to Vancouver and experience everything our wonderful city has to offer.

Flights will operate on WestJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft featuring the recently enhanced Plus product and WestJet Connect. Flights between Vancouver and Halifax begin June 29 and will operate four times weekly until September 3, 2016. Flights have been timed conveniently with WestJet’s extensive domestic network.

The route flies four times a week. It departs YVR at 9 p.m. and arrives in Halifax at 6:34 a.m. the following day. Flights depart from Halifax at 7:25 a.m. and arrives in Vancouver at 9:46 a.m.
