Getting Here

St. John’s International Airport (YYT) is the premier transportation gateway to St. John’s, currently serving approximately 1.6 million passengers annually. Six airlines currently offer scheduled passenger service: Air CanadaWestJetPorter AirlinesLynxAirPAL Airlines, and Air Saint Pierre. On a daily basis, St. John’s International Airport has direct flights to and from multiple destinations in Canada (Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary). WestJet has seasonal flights (May through October) to the United States (Tampa and Orlando) and Europe (London LGW). 

For delegates travelling from Europe, note that WestJet and Porter Airlines each have an interline agreement with Icelandair on connections between North America and more than 20 Icelandair destinations throughout Europe. Traveling with Icelandair would require going through Halifax, but would avoid going through Gatwick (LGW) with WestJet and would permit a stopover in Iceland (KEF).

The Airport is only 10 minutes by taxi or car rental from the city centre. Taxi fares from the airport to the city centre are $25-$30 CAD. The St. John’s Metrobus also provides a public transit service to and from the airport with stops at popular destinations in the St. John’s metro region, including Memorial University (see below for festival accommodation rates). The airport is served by several car rental agencies, including Avis, Budget, National, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty.

You may need a VISA or an Electonic Travel Authorization (eTA) to enter Canada. Information regarding who needs to obtain a temporary Visa or an eTA to visit Canada is outlined at Citizenship and Immigration Canada. USA citizens are exempt from the eTA requirement and must carry proper identification such as a valid USA passport. If you do require an eTA, it is highly recommended that you apply for the eTA prior to your arrival at your departure airport. Applying for an eTA is a simple online process, and the fee is $7 CAD. The VISA application form is available here.

When booking your flight, make sure that you are travelling to St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador (YYT). Other Canadian cites have similar names (like Saint John, New Brunswick), so be sure to use the YYT Airport Designation Code.
