Popular Routes from Toronto to Halifax

The most popular route to Nova Scotia is from Toronto Pearson to Halifax Stanfield International. There are more than 100 flights each week, and even more in the summer season.

Toronto Pearson is the biggest airport in Canada and one of the best-connected in North America. It handles almost 50 million passengers a year and more than 17 million of those are domestic.

Air Canada and WestJet fly direct to Halifax all year round, and Toronto is the main hub for both airlines.

You can also get a flight to Halifax, with a brief stop at Ottawa, from the much smaller Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, with Porter Airlines.

The Flight from Toronto to Halifax

A direct flight from Toronto Pearson to Halifax takes just over two hours to cover the 800 miles between the two cities. Your plane heads east along the north shore of Lake Ontario and passes south of Montreal on the route towards Nova Scotia. It then flies across Vermont and Maine in the USA and passes over the Bay of Fundy before coming into land at Halifax Stanfield. Most flights are on Airbus A320 jet planes.

The return flight usually takes around half an hour longer because of the prevailing winds.

From Billy Bishop airport, the journey is longer – around three and a half hours with a 30-minute layover in Ottawa – and you will travel in a turboprop plane rather than a jet.

Whichever route you choose to take, flying is by far the quickest and easiest option to travel from Toronto to Halifax.
