Flights from ATL to YHZ will be operated by Skywest using the CRJ-900. Flights from JFK to YHZ will be operated by Comair using the CRJ-200.

HALIFAX — Delta Air Lines is resuming its weekly service to Atlanta from Halifax and will introduce new daily service to New York for the summer.

The U.S. carrier will fly non-stop to Atlanta from Halifax International Airport, beginning June 21.

The Saturday service will depart Atlanta at 10:55 a.m and arrive in Halifax at 2:15 p.m.

The out-bound flight will depart Halifax at 3:00 p.m.

The flights will run until Aug. 16 and be operated by Delta's connection carrier Skywest, using a 76-seat Canadair jet.

The daily New York service will start June 5 and operate until Sept. 7.

I'm personally glad we've resumed YHZ service as I have a number of friends stationed in Halifax with the Canadian Forces.

Good for Comair! Now Eagle will have some US compition on the route. Loads usually look good for Eagle on this route. However, I think they are dropping LGA-YHZ.

How do you mean "resumed" YHZ services? To my recollection, DL has never stopped serving YHZ. Or do you from ATL specifically?

GCM shows it being 1357 miles from ATL. I think this flight will go senior if it is not a layover.

That's a short hop on a nice CRJ900, what with First class seats 'n all...  Smile

Halifax is nice, I felt quite at home there.

If the DL NW merger goes ahead as planned, will NW's DTW-YHZ be dropped?

I can see AA dropping YHZ-LGA if they're already flying YHZ-JFK. $130-$140 crude can't support both.

Is AA still operating YHZ-ORD?

3:20 and 3:40... theres a time zone change.

Almost 4 hours is way to long to be in a "regional" jet.

Someone is making a mistake. There is no way a 1357 mile journey can be blocked for 2:20 even with a tailwind. Taking into account taxi times in ATL and YHZ, you'd be looking at 675mph ground speed from takeoff to touchdown. I just flew PHL-IAH blocked at 3:58 and it is of a similar distance.


There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't.

Times seem very ambitious - 2h20 minutes ATL-YHZ is going to be one of the most delayed flights out there, between ATL taxi times and then flight time (no way that flight blocks at 2 hours even; my ATL-BOS flights often block around 1h50 minutes takeoff to touchdown and YHZ is about 400 miles northeast of Boston).

Delta 1981

ar YHZ 2:15 PM

Flying time: 2 hours, 20 minutes

The extra hour is accounted for.

Delta 1981

Odd that Delta is using the same flight number both ways!! Is this usual practice?

Huh? That would be "flight time," not "block time." Block time includes push, taxi and ground crew reception. The term for takeoff to touchdown is "flight time."

It's a Saturday flight, there is less airport congestion then, I believe... and the CRJ900 is almost as quick as a B737NG.

Even so, something seems to be wrong with those ATL-YHZ-ATL flight times. ATL-YHZ is about 160 miles further than ATL-DEN but DL's schedules show their CRJ-900 ATL-YHZ about 40 minutes faster than a 752 or 738 ATL-DEN. Also faster than a 757 DEN-ATL where tailwinds should favor the DEN-ATL flight even discounting the cruising speed difference.

Delta.com also shows a second Nonstop flight on Saturaday evening that overnights in YHZ and returns Nonstop to ATL on Sunday AM.

Without factoring wind, it should take 2h36 to travel ATL-YHZ at cruise speed on a CRJ-900. Given that, it seems rather unlikely to be able to achieve the flight times published by Delta, though I suppose it must be possible.
