Halifax to Europe

Hoping to find a reasonably priced flight from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada to the UK, either London or vicinity, to travel onwards to eastern Europe.

I have found some excellent airfares to Eastern Europe from the UK, however from Halifax to the UK it is much more expensive. Anyone have any ideas as how best to get to the UK?

Thanks,

PS Flying to UK in mid-August

Halifax, NS

I can't help you there. I've been avoiding flying into the States like the plague, ever since it took me 3.5 hours to go through immigration at Newark last Sept. (And I'm a white-haired and skinned, female, 6th generation Canadian, ie not on anyone's terrorist profile.) And I swore off going to the States to take a flight elsewhere many years ago. They're the only country that I've ever heard of, that doesn't have transit facilities in their airports. So that even if you're taking another flight out of the country within a very short time, you have to go through customs, etc. Give me Heathrow or Gatwick any time. You go to a transit room, sit there until your flight is called, and get on your next flight. Of course that only works if your luggage is checked through to your final destination.

Blondie may be able to help - she loves going to NYC.

Continental flights from YHZ to EWR (Newark Liberty) are non stop but I don't believe they service any New York City airports unfortunatly. Air Canada services LaGuardia but only via YYZ ( Toronto) or YUL ( Montreal).

I agree with Bedlace 100% regarding Newark Liberty. It;s an absolute nightmare each and every time. Was this way before 9/11 and is far worse now. However I grit my teeth and usually fly into EWR for the sake of faster flight duration time.

Is it easy to transfer in JFK? I'm looking at taking the Delta flight direct to Ukraine. 5 hrs enough lead time?
