The latest generation of narrowbody aircraft is opening up a wealth of exciting opportunities at northeastern Canada’s regional hub. Sebastian Schmitz reports on Halifax Stanfield’s evolution into an even bigger player and an alternative gateway to Canada.
Halifax, the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, is the biggest city and a major economic centre in eastern Canada. The Atlantic port has always been a transport hub for The Maritimes, Canada’s eastern provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Halifax later developed into an important staging post for transatlantic flights due to its enviable geographic position. Today, with more than four million passengers per year, Halifax Stanfield is the region’s busiest.
