Halifax - Frankfurt non-stop flights return early September:

Quote:
Condor Airlines to resume flights between Halifax and Germany
The airline will be flying into Halifax from Frankfurt twice a week



Nova Scotians will soon once again have a direct flight option to Europe.

When international travel resumes on Sept. 7, Condor Airlines will be flying into Halifax from Frankfurt on Mondays and Thursdays.

It will also offer a Frankfurt to Toronto route on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

"Our guests have waited a long time to be able to travel across the big pond to North America again," said the company's CEO Ralf Teckentrup in a news release. "Now Canada has invited all North America fans who are fully vaccinated to join them again."

"Within a few hours, we received so many requests for Condor flights that we decided at short notice to offer five connections per week from Frankfurt to Canada starting in September."

Fully immunized Americans and permanent residents can come into the country starting Aug. 9. As of that date, international passenger flights will once again be allowed to land at Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

Canada plans to allow other fully immunized international travellers who meet any specific entry requirements in starting Sept. 7.

No idea how long this page has been up, but it looks like they're planning to build all the way out to the highway. I wish they'd include a Montreal-style park for airplane enthusiasts.

^Looks like the presentation was earlier today.

I'd seen some plans for the commercial area before, however the potential 'pier' terminal extensions are intriguing, even if 10+ years out. In the meantime, I just hope they'll finish the glazing on the parking garage, haha.

That's encouraging, yet puzzling. What's the demand for daily service to Philly, especially on an aircraft with at least 60% greater capacity (depending on configuration) than an E175? I don't get it.

It also would've been great to see AA restore their old service to JFK - great connections and more convenient than EWR or LGA (in my opinion, anyway).

Philly is a pretty big hub for AA, no?

Yes, for sure. But so are JFK and LGA (and they already serve LGA from YHZ).

Anyway, I'm certainly not complaining - any new service is a good thing! Philly just hadn't occurred to me as the most obvious choice.

Must be one of the worst major airports I have been to. It had a post-apocalyptic feel when I was there, with angry people and garbage drifting around. Maybe it's better now.

I've never been there but my wife has, several times, most recently in 2018 or 19, I think. She described it pretty much the same way.

I agree, Philly feels like a poorly run LaGuardia. A dirty Bus stop. A buddy and I were travelling back from Cleveland on business and literally made our connection to Halifax as they were closing the aircraft door.

Air Canada Investor Day 2022 presentation on March 30th. Some interesting pages in there.

https://aircanada.investorroom.com/d...+FINAL-web.pdf

Page 33. Number of dom/intl/transborder destinations served at each of the 4 hubs, and TATL hub ranking.

Page 34. Potential new destinations (some of these on the A321XLR). Hard to make out, but you can see YVR-SIN, YYZ-IST/ARN/LOS/DSS/BLR, YUL-TLS, YHZ-FRA. Some others that aren't too visible as well.

Page 37. A321XLR potential destinations. YUL-DSS, YYZ-ARN/BER/PRG, YHZ-FRA, among the most interesting. Nothing out of the west coast, except for domestic runs and YVR-EWR.

Page 38. Map of the fastest growing US markets AC wants to focus on, including SEA, SFO, DEN, MIA, AUS, BNA.

Page 39. Map of all the 6th freedom opportunities out of YYZ/YUL from the US to Transatlantic.

A lot of other insightful information in there.

Enjoy.

Here's a zoomed in version of that:

It appears both YHZ-LHR and future YHZ-FRA will be A321XLR instead of the Max.

Great news!! The A321XLR will be a far better experience than the MAX with their Signature Lie Flat product.
