"Flying to Halifax" Province of Nova Scotia Transportation Tip by Martman
Province of Nova Scotia Transportation: 15 reviews and 23 photos
I flew from Toronto to Halifax on Royal Airlines Boeing 727 and returned to Toronto on Canada 3000 Airbus 320. Both airlines no longer exist and niether does the terminal 1 in Toronto which I used then. I will mention that the distance between Halifax airport and the city Halifax was about double than between Toronto's airport and the city Toronto. The drive between the airport and the city was also different. Driving to Toronto airport is built up the entire way. Going to Halifax airport, I saw trees and forest the entire way. I saw the same from my aircraft window. Approaching Halifax, I saw trees, trees, trees, trees, trees, .....and eventually a runway!
I always use the same agent when I travel because I think she is excellent. This was one time when paradoxically, the best deal she could find, was going and returning on different airlines! I flew Toronto -> Halifax on Royal airlines (Boeing 727). My return flight Halifax -> Toronto was Canada 3000 (Airbus 320). Both airlines no longer exist and niether does that terminal!
The first picture is of my Royal Airlines Boeing 727 before boarding. This picture is outdated in 3 ways.
1)Royal Airline no longer exists.
2) 727s are seldom used these days.
3)That airport terminal no longer exists.
The other picture is of another Royal Airlines (Lockheed Tristar L1011). I took that picture the same day.
It is also worth mentioning that Halifax airport has won awards for being among the nicest airports in the world.
