Halifax is serviced by the
Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ). There are direct flights
from all major cities in Central and Eastern Canada, several hubs in the
U.S., and from London, England, as well as (during the Summer months) from
Frankfurt, Germany, with
Condor, and from Reykjavik, Iceland, with

Important: If you come from abroad, please check the
entry requirements for your country of citizenship. US citizens require
proper identification, such as a valid US passport. Citizens of most other
countries will require at least an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) which
can be obtained online and currently costs $7 CAD. But please check for
possible visa requirements.
Ground Transportation to/from the Airport
The airport is located about 35 km (or 174 furlong) from Halifax, and a taxi
ride is therefore rather expensive. A very inexpensive alternative ($3.50) is
public transit, namely
Route 320 which goes to the downtown core.
Further information will be posted here at a later time.
Most major rental companies are represented at the airport; they are
here. Some also have locations in downtown Halifax.
While most goods and services, even small amounts, can be paid with any major
credit card, I suggest that you get some Canadian cash upon arrival. There are
ATMs at several locations inside the airport. There is also a currency exchange
counter in the arrival area of the airport. Taxis typically accept credit
cards, but for the Bus 320 you will need exact change, i.e., coins.
The Canadian Dollar fluctuates slightly but regularly against other currencies.
For the current rate see a
currency converter. In February, 2018, the rates were roughly as follows:
1 EUR = $1.54 CAD; 1 GBP = $1.75 CAD; 1 USD = $1.26 CAD.
