We are from Fredericton NB, Booked out of Boston with Jet Blu for $900 4 people.

This sounds far but in actuality it is not much different than MHT where we traditionally fly from. It saved us quite a bit this year.

Thank you Ted!! We made the drive down yesterday to Manchester. Roads were clear and the sun was shining! Had an unusual long wait at the border but we chopped it off as part of the vacation... lol. Did some shopping in Freeport!! WOW!! Then made our way to the hotel you recommended.. .Homewood Suites by Hilton. We could not have asked for better, it was perfect! We loved Manchester's airport, it's a lot like Halifax...nice and small...and so far we are loving our first Southwest experience; currently 36,000 above right now Thank you, thank you, thank, you!!!!

That's an excellent fare, when are you flying?
Our last two trips were from Portland on Air Tran. However we would prefer JetBlue either from Portland or Boston if the $ is right for our DCL cruise in Mar 2014.

We are doing the Magic, March 3, 2014 I am watching Southwest out of Manchester, NH since our AirTran points will transfer. Of course, I can't look at rates yet, but I am checking this years, so I can recognize a deal.

Rates for August

Hi, we are looking to go in August, last year I got from Halifax to Atlanta direct for 400pp and drove to Orlando from there. This year, the direct flight isnt available. What $ should I expect from YHZ to MCO? We are flexible with dates but prefer the end of August.

sprmom, if you were willing to drive Atlanta-Orlando, you might consider driving to Manchester NH and flying from there. Southwest has a sale on now I believe.

I also received emails recently from both Air Canada and Westjet. I don't know what you'll end up paying, but it's probably a good time to look. I've priced it up at around $750 (on a good day) to $1000 (average day) pp, YHZ-MCO. Kills me. We are flying in August AC but on an AirMiles reward (that took me about 3 years to earn ...usually we fly from NH.)

Do you want to leave this Friday???

If anyone can go last minute, direct flights from Halifax to Orlando with Air Transat leaving Mar 22 (Friday) for one week is $357, all taxes and fees included. Not sure how many seats but if you can get a week off at short notice

As for the end of August, departing Aug. 27, 28, or 29 (Tu, W, Th) for one week with Delta is currently $450, all taxes and fees included. I hope this is helpful!

Hey guys- considering March Break in Florida (Halifax based). Not opposed to driving to get a better fare. Need to travel Saturday March 8th (morning preferably) and back on Saturday March 15th (or Early on Sunday the 16th). Any ideas?

Right now airtransat has direct flights for March and April from Moncton for $481 per person taxes in for Friday to Friday.

Too bad I've already booked with Jetblue out of Boston.

Hi neighbours! I thought I'd post here the deal we got on our flights out of Moncton.

In 2010 we got lucky in March, and found flights for Oct1 for 8 days for $465 a seat. Which, I was very excited about.

This year I did a search for all of Sept, Oct, Nov, and Dec (last week) and the cheapest week we found was for Oct 2-9th (I also alternated time frames...6 days, 7 days, 8 days). We got the seats for $370 a seat.

This is a surprise trip, as we were not planning to go this year since we are going next. But the free dining, plus cheap seats, along with the fact that we miss Disney dearly, and voila. A week stay in October. I think Hubby is more excited than the kids and I are this time around.
