About the Airport
St. John’s International Airport is the premier transportation gateway to Newfoundland and Labrador, currently serving approximately 1.6 million passengers annually. Approximately 70 per cent of all non-resident visitors who travel by air to and from the province do so through our Airport. Our Airport therefore plays a significant role in facilitating the economic growth and development of our region.
On a daily basis, St. John’s International Airport has approximately 88 arriving and departing flights to and from 14 destinations in Canada, the US and Europe (some on a seasonal basis), with connections to anywhere in the world. The Airport is served by five major airlines: Air Canada, WestJet, Porter Airlines, Provincial Airlines, and Air Saint Pierre. In addition, Sunwing and Air Transat provide seasonal service to destinations within Canada and to the Caribbean.
Growth at the Airport has been significant; passenger traffic has more than doubled since the Airport was privatized in 1998 and it is now one of the busiest airports in Canada.
St. John’s International Airport is located in the capital city of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Airport is considered a “downtown” airport as it is situated just minutes from the downtown core, but has no noise restrictions. The Airport is the second largest in Atlantic Canada based on the number of passengers and is the most easterly in North America.
