Halifax Airport Area

Where Halifax connects with the world

Just 30 minutes from Downtown Halifax, the Airport Area is home to Halifax Stanfield International Airport and its surrounding communities. These suburban communities, including Fall River and Waverley, populate the region with cute cafes and bakeries, local pubs and plenty of lakes and trails.

With a number of great hotels, inns and B&Bs nearby, this region is ideal for travellers looking to stay close to the airport on a short stopover, or start or end their stay in the Halifax Region.
