  • Getting here by Air
St. John’s Airport is located approx. 10 minutes away from the Campus. If you would like to be met at the Airport, please let Dr. Kerton or Dr. Kozak know.
The airport code is YYT.
WestJet provides non-stop flights to Halifax, Toronto and Calgary, and other cities, e.g. Ottawa, on a less regular basis or a brief touchdown in Halifax.  For other Canadian Cities (e.g. Winnipeg, Vancouver) and US destinations (e.g. Hawaii, Florida, California) connections can be made at one of their hubs (Toronto or Calgary). Westjet have introduced international flights between YYT and Dublin, Ireland; and London, UK (from ~May-Sept).

Air Canada provides non-stop flights from St. John’s to: Calgary, Gander, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver within Canada, and internationally, to London Heathrow and Gatwick.

Both Westjet and Air Canada offer flights (non-stop or with a brief touchdown) to Fort McMurray in Northern Alberta

Porter airlines flies to St. John’s from several eastern Canada locations. We frequently use them to get to Halifax and Ottawa (and Montreal and Toronto). They often have seat-sales.

If a direct flight is not possible, international connections can be made in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Halifax, or Newark/New York which do have direct connections to St. John’s. Most flights from Africa or the Middle-East will be routed through London (UK), and flights from China will be routed through Vancouver.

Within the province, flights are available through Air Labrador and Provincial Airlines.

Charter airlines, e.g. Sunwing airlines, Air Transat, also serve YYT and often discounted flights to holiday destinations such as the Dominican Republic or Florida can be obtained.

  • Getting here by Land and Sea

On-line information can be found through the following links:

Province wide buses/coaches(DRL)

Ferries  (Marine-Atlantic)

Ferries to Argentia from North Sydney (NS) run from June to September. Argentia is less than 2 hours drive from St. John’s.

All the usual car rental companies have offices in St. John’s : Budget, Avis, National, Hertz and Thrifty

St. John’s is a fairly small city and the downtown area can be easily navigated on foot. Metrobus (see link above) offer a reliable service and there are also plentiful, reasonable priced taxis.
