Canada’s Eastern Edge is connected to the world and a lot closer than you think. Located on Canada’s Atlantic coast, northeast of New England and nearer to Europe than any other part of North America, it is an historic crossroads in world travel, trade, and culture.

With daily flights from major US and European airports and frequent connections from other Canadian cities, Halifax Nova Scotia’s Stansfield International Airport (YHZ) is the gateway to Canada’s Eastern Edge. YHZ also has a US preclearance customs facility.

Other Eastern Edge airports are in easy reach of YHZ and have US and European connections of their own.
