Four regional airports (in Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Bathurst) make it convenient for you to arrive in the jet-setting style to which you’re accustomed. For International Flights - just a 5 ½ hour direct flight to Halifax, Nova Scotia from London with commuter flights to New Brunswick in 30 minutes or a short 3 hour drive. Also, direct flights to Montreal with connector flights and train options to New Brunswick.
Flying to Canada? Entry rules are changing. Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to or transiting through Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Starting March 15, 2016, travellers will need an eTA before they can board their flight to Canada. Eligible travellers can now apply online for an eTA. To find out more, visit Canada.ca/eTA.
BUS & COACH
Travel by coach and relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus while a professional takes care of the driving. Check out Maritime Bus for more information.
There’s nothing quite like the sound of a train whistle. Board the VIA Rail in Montreal in the evening, and be in Campbellton, Bathurst, Miramichi or Moncton before noon the next day.
