Flights from Halifax to Gander

Flights from Halifax to Gander

Gander is a hugely important place in the history of air travel: its airfield was once the world's largest, and its airport was for many years the single most important stop-over for transatlantic flights — hence the town's evocative nickname, the "Crossroads of the World." Visitors to this friendly Newfoundland hub can follow in the steps of its famous former guests — from Elizabeth Taylor to Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis — and have an abundance of fun, family-friendly pastimes at their fingertips. No matter the season, there are plenty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed here, including whale watching, Nordic skiing, golf and kayaking. There's also the majestic beauty of the unspoiled-yet-accessible Gander River, where a growing population of Atlantic salmon attracts anglers from all over the world.

Once you've arranged your flight, all you have to do is look forward to the prospect of spending time in Newfoundland and Labrador's most congenial and warm-hearted destination. No matter the nature of your visit, you’re sure to enjoy Little Harbour Marina, the SnowFari festival and the North Atlantic Aviation Museum — most of all you can count on WestJet to get you from Halifax to Gander.
