Wow.. that's very good.. beats me.

I booked with J/B out of PWM for June 1 to June 9.

1 Checked bag included

Direct Flights both ways..

$464.25 Canadian Dollars all in..for two travelers.

The big selling point for me was direct flights both ways.

They have some great fares for their first week operating out of Halifax. $473 return to Orlando for June 3 to 12th. And they fly 3 times a day, every day. I may have to look at them in the fall as we usually fly with Continental.

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.

Woo-hoo!! Thanks for posting this!

Is that including taxes??

More competition is always better....especially way out here in the Nova Scotian boonies...

I'm going to chech with them when we go for cruise May 2011 (or before if I can swing it as well )

Yep, taxes in, US dollars. They are also one of the airlines that comes up with an Expedia search so I've gotten them in combination with other airlines on one itinerary for a bit of a cheaper fare.

Their fares for later summer and fall are comparable to the other carriers right now but more choice and competition are good for us!

Does anybody know when and if there are supurb airfares for September? Ideally would like to fly out of Moncton. But right now with Airtran we can get $79 one way. But then there is gas and hotels. Not that we mind, but we live in Dieppe, so Moncton is ideal, at a cheap airfare. Do we buy now or wait until last minute?

September flights

We've done late August the last two years - first year out of Halifax, two flghts on Aeroplan and two United...still cost about $1800. August 2009 we were looking at over $2400 for 4 from Halifax. Got 4 return flights Bangor to Orlando on Delta for $1000US taxes in - thought this was amazing. Did the stay, park and fly at the Four Points at Bangor Airport, and some back to school shopping along the way.

Air Transat doesn't fly from about May 15th until early January.

I had checked Moncton last year, but the prices didn't seem to get any better for either Halifax or Moncton. Did notice during my obsessive checking of expedia that occassionally 'better' prices popped up online after midnight on Saturday night - so early Sunday morning (about $200 better on tickets for 4). They don't last though, so if you see them be prepared to book them!

Thank you for the information! How soon in advance did you see the $200 off deals?

I've looked at Bangor, which would really be preferable because it saves us 2 hrs each way in driving...but seems like the cheaper deals aren't on a saturday or sunday, which we would need. Am I right in that assumption?

We booked our tickets in April last year, so it would have been some random Saturday night checking in April that I found the price.

And I'm not certain if it is the way it works, but our 'cheap' flights from Bangor left and returned on Tuesdays...actually, now that I think about it, I believe Tuesday was the cheapest day to fly - and we stayed two weeks with the airfare savings we had.

There are some seriously good deals out for the first part of June now. I found $357 Canadian, all taxes in through Expedia out of Halifax. If anyone is thinking about travelling down to MCO check it out! I'm shocked! Move it back to include the 4th of July weekend and the price jumps to $480, still a good price. Go further to the first of August and I'm getting back to the $620 region.

I hope someone can take advantage of this. I won't be able to go until probably mid-October or later, so I'm hoping these good deals will last. Not counting on it but still hopeful.

That's awesome! I got $1576 for 4 seats out of Halifax in June (thurs-wed flights)$1660 out of Moncton. Same dates. I could have gotten the Moncton flights a tad cheaper, but the flight offered at $10 per seat on the going flight would get us there at supper time, and we like to arrive around noon.
GEEZ! I hope these same fares come out for September!! Oh I'd be so excited. That is about the same cost as flights out of portland, gas, 2 nights in a hotel, and meals. (and a little for TIME) FINGERS CROSSED!!

As soon as rates are posted for next April I will be looking. Easter is late next year so if we go early April we should get better rates, avoid the Easter crowds and good weather, what more could you ask for? Leaving tomorrow for 12 days, weather is looking quite good.
