Halifax, NS gets 2 Charter flights From China in 2020

Just sharing some YHZ news.
It's not scheduled flying but still a step in YHZ development.

There are some people critical of this move as we need money for health care, teachers, etc. however, while I feel that's true,this could hopefully lead to tourism and that's a huge economic driver here.

I admit I'm not in the Maritimes but I have a hard time getting behind this in a business development sense. How the Premier thinks that subsidizing two individual flights is going to somehow magically show that this is a big market, resulting in further service, is beyond me.

I guess I hope I'm wrong, for the sake of you Westerners... But it just kinda looks like a weird logic.

I agree, it is indeed a long shot.

It give me the same feeling as those charter fligts formerly operated by what was Dynamic Airlines travelling from like Yantai via Anchorage to Pittsburgh

Too bad they couldn't do it as a combi as Chinese and Korean Cargo Airlines are already flying to Halifax on a regular basis

The premier has been hellbent on getting direct passenger service from China. I guess this is a consolation prize for the scheduled service he wanted but anyone with half an ounce of aviation knowledge could have told him would never happen.

It will make two interesting days for YHZ spotters if nothing else.

While these are a couple of cool ad-hoc charters, China scheduled pax to YHZ is a pipe dream...unless the lobster suddenly start demanding their own seats! YOW and YEG have much higher O&D to China. They’ll be next in order to get it and those are probably a minimum of five and probably more like 10 years away. However, YHZ’s Airport Authority have done a fantastic job of getting many new European flights that no doubt YOW and YEG are quite envious of.

YUL used to get China and Japan charters for the fall leaves before their scheduled service.

Absolutely, YHZ is very fortunate to have the European connections we have (apparently Manchester is on the way too as per another post on this forum)...that should be the focus. Asia is not going to happen.

This seems like another PIT-China situation, I wonder if this will last past the 2 flights being offered. PIT never returned and not much of a surprise

Are there any year-round YHZ-Europe flights now? I know AC flew from there to LHR for years.

If it wasn't for the 737max grounding,currently there would be flights to LHR by AC

Ah . . . so the route was down-gauged from the 767 to the Max and then suspended when the Max was grounded? Presumably it will return when the Max is re-certified? Didn't AC once fly one of the 320 variants from YYT to LHR? Does that plane not have the range for YHZ-LHR?

YYT-LHR was done on an A319.....now on a Max which is also suspended along with the YHZ-LHR route.

YHZ has actually seen this sort of charter in the past. A couple of years ago Japan Airlines did a couple charter flights to YHZ for tourists wishing to visit during peak fall foliage using a 777-200 nonstop from/to NRT.

I have not heard this rumor regarding a MAN flight from YHZ. Any further details?

Was posted in the WS thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1427977&start=250. Rumour of a 01JUN20 start with WS96/97 as the flt #s. No doubt it and the apparent 3x weekly YOW-LGW are entirely contingent on the MAX.

YHZ can't even sustain yearround scheduled svc to the likes of LAX/SFO, barely YVR..... and they're going for TPAC??

I don’t think LAX/SFO are markets that any carrier would be interested in offering from YHZ.

Scheduled service to Asia, even seasonally, is a long shot. The charters have been done in the past and it’s good to see new charters coming in the future. There has been a rise in direct cargo services to Asia from Halifax as well which is definitely welcome.
