Just posted separate thread about this. On the AC site this morning I found reduced prices for flights to Orlando from several Canadian airports during Tues. Feb. 23-Wed. June 23, flights must be on Tues./Wed./Thurs. The reduced prices are available until Wed. Feb. 24 at 11:59 p.m. EST (today!). Flights from Halifax were quoted at $169 one way.

I looked at the end of April and you can Fly mid-week for $134 from Halifax to Orlando.

I checked Airtransats site you could fly Halifax to Orlando May 4-11 for $129+224(tax). For 3 it was $1040 direct flight from Halifax. We paid about $600 more for our dates in April I will keep it in mind for next year!

I looked at it but when I was looking for their arrival times were pretty late and the days they flew was pretty limited. I did however screw up on Christmas Eve when they were selling tickets at $24 and instead of hitting "BUY" I mentally hit "hmmmmm". Should have bought them and made it work....oh well, lesson learned.

Bangor and Alligient would be fine if you were planning to rent a car. Bangor is a nice small airport, but I've never been to sandford.

News - US Airways in YHZ

Halifax Stanfield Welcomes Service to Philadelphia with US Airways

Halifax, N.S. – Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) today announced new air service between Halifax and Philadelphia with US Airways. The new service will operate three times daily beginning on June 1, 2010. This marks US Airways’ first service to Halifax.
“We are very pleased to welcome US Airways to our community,” says Tom Ruth, HIAA President & CEO. “This announcement is great news for air travellers, and the Atlantic Canadian economy as a whole, and demonstrates our commitment to expanding air service in Halifax,” he says.

The year-round daily service to Halifax will be operated by US Airways Express partner Air Wisconsin on a 50-seat CRJ-200 regional jet. The non-stop service will depart Halifax at 7:40 a.m., 1:15 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.

“This new service to Philadelphia, three times a day, will provide both business and leisure travellers with more options, more choice, and direct access to another key U.S. market and major airline hub,” says Jerry Staples, HIAA Vice President Marketing & Business Development. “We have been working with US Airways on this route development for some time and are delighted to see it become a reality,” he says.

US Airways, along with US Airways Shuttle and US Airways Express, operates more than 3,000 flights per day and serves more than 190 communities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Seems US Airways still doesn't recognize the routing even after you input a date after June 1. Will be excited to have another airline flying from YHZ. And Star Alliance so more Aeroplan points

I think AirTransat is a pretty seasonal airline. I'm hoping for decent priced flights with them for my November trip but I think I'm going to be out of luck since I doubt they will have started up for the "fly to where it's warmer" season by then.
