Flights from Halifax to Gander

Flights from Halifax to Gander

At one time, Gander’s airport was the biggest in the world, receiving heavy traffic as a refuelling stop for transatlantic flights and for stationing allied aircraft and troops during World War II. Today, nearly all of Gander’s streets are named for historic aviators and the town hosts a number of aviation events and attractions — including Atlantic Wings, a permanent exhibit in the domestic passenger lounge at Gander International Airport that chronicles the birth and early development of transatlantic aviation. Historic draws aside, this down-to-earth town offers up a variety of outdoor activities year-round, including golf, fishing, kayaking, hunting and Nordic skiing, as well as whale watching excursions and an annual summer triathlon. At nearby Cobb's Pond Rotary Park, visitors can take a leisurely stroll along a 3-km boardwalk nature trail and, if the time is right, take part in yearly Gander Day celebrations, featuring food, games, music and fireworks.
