Porter Airline’s new 2019 schedule for Stephenville, Newfoundland features 48 round-trip flights between that city and Halifax, during the period 4MAY 2019 through 8JAN 2020, with schedules varying by season.

"We are pleased Porter Airlines recognizes the importance of the Stephenville Airport as a critical transportation hub for Western Newfoundland," said Joe Sheen, Chair of the airport’s Board of Directors.

This will be the regional short-haul airline’s sixth year of service in Stephenville.

Flights also connect with YOW and YTZ on the same aircraft, and other destinations in the Porter network are accessible from these points.

Christmas season flights were introduced for the first time in 2017, after four years of popular summer service.
