To the U.S. yes...generally on Delta or Southwest. DTW is a major hub for Delta -- so the options and destinations are endless -- however Delta's relative dominance means DTW isn't a particularly low-cost airport (although Spirit has a large operation there as well). Porter has run YQG-SFB seasonally in the past, but that has been the limit of YQG's service to the U.S. (given the proximity of DTW).

That being said, Europe-bound tends to be significantly cheaper from YQG on AC (via YYZ) vs. nonstop out of DTW, often the fares are about 1/2 before even accounting for the exchange rate -- so there is (in non-covid times) significant traffic from the U.S. to YQG. I have been on one of the late afternoon/early evening AC flights out of YQG and it is (at least seemingly) 50% U.S. residents...in that sense the market here is somewhat unique. YHM will always be somewhat handicapped by proximity to BUF -- but the population is growing and some people will choose convenience over cost, especially coming out of 18 months of crossing the border being a non-starter.

Westjet Cargo

I see on google maps and if you type in "westjet cargo" in google, it shows it at Hamilton Airport. Does anyone know if they're flying their cargo converted planes out of Hamilton now?
