Newfoundland is a large island, making St. John’s a bit isolated, so we recommend that SAC attendees fly directly to St. John’s Airport (YYT). We are served domestically by Air Canada, Porter Airlines and WestJet. Internationally, Air Canada has a direct flight from London Heathrow (with various Star Alliance codeshares), WestJet flies from Dublin and London Gatwick and American Airlines has WestJet codeshares from several Canadian cities.
If you have an extra week and want to take the scenic route, you can drive to North Sydney, NS and take a Marine Atlantic ferry to Newfoundland. The Port aux Basques ferry takes 5h to get to the Western tip of Newfoundland, which is approximately a 12h drive from St. John’s. The Argentia ferry takes 14h to bring you to the Avalon Peninsula, a 2h drive from St. John’s.
