When I landed in YYT (St. John's, Newfoundland) last Friday, I saw an Islandflug 737-300 parked near one of the cargo terminals. Does anyone know if they fly to YYT regularly? Do they carry passengers as well as cargo?

Hey Matt,

Sometimes Islandflug drops by for a short visit. I don't think the flights carry pax when they do come here. I have never seen any come off the a/c and also, they usually park on the hanger side of the airport.
I have seen their 737's and SA-227 Metro's here on numberous occasions.
As for why they come here, I'm not too sure. I have never been able to get an answer for that.
Usually they stay for one day to three.
Sorry I'm not more help than that.

Actually, i wonder if it's not a charter flight from Iceland. I noticed that there were quite a few tourists from Iceland during the weekend (downtown and at our hotel). Very interesting.

I hadn't seen the St. John's terminal since it was renovated. Very nice. Too bad that there are only 3 jetways. When we left, there were four planes on the ground, two of which were not using jetways. Why is that? Only one jetway was taken by the AC 763 from LHR. The CanJet 732 and the Skyservice 320 were just parked at the "remote" stands...

Hey Matt,

Yeah, the charter thing may have been a possibility. There have been charters from Iceland on many occasions, but they have mainly been with Icelandair, however, that was a few years ago.
As for the terminal, yes, it is very nice. It should be completed soon I hope. It has been a while since they started.
There were originally supposed to be four bridges, but the airport authority only went with three because Canjet, Canada 3000, etc didn't want to pay for the use of the fourth bridge. There is still a position for the fourth if it is ever needed.
Bridges 2 & 3 are owned by Air Canada and number 1 is owned by the airport authority and is used mainly as an international bridge (thus the reason for the 763 using it). Canjet and Skyservice use our bridges everyday for some of their flights because the airport authority charges more for the use of number 1. I guess you could say that we give Canjet and SS a break when it come to paying for the use of bridges at YT.
CJ and SS can only use our bridges when we don't have any of our own flights arriving during that period when they are here.
Hope this helps.
