It is close & convenient to fly into Nova Scotia for our race. As your plane lines up for landing, if you knew where to look, you could see most of our race course, and you might even pass directly over the mid point of the bike course on your final approach. Then, depending where you are staying, you are likely only a 20-25 minute drive away from the race site and your accommodations.
Quite a number of airlines fly direct from destinations across Canada and the Eastern US, as well as Western Europe (France, Germany, England and Iceland). We thought Air Canada was the best choice as they have the most flights in and out of the Halifax International Airport (YHZ), and they have very kindly provided us a discount code to assist with athletes flying in for this event.
Air Canada asked that we not publicly post this code, but if you are flying in for our race, send us an email once you are registered and we will send you the discount code so you can check if it is a benefit to you (depending on your location and the flight options you have available). I am told this will save 10% off the cost of all but their Tango fares, so not a huge discount, but a very real one, and depending where you are flying from, should offset the cost of flying with your bike (Air Canada bike fees are still only $50 per direction)
- This promotion code can be used for 30 passengers on aircanada.com.

If you are coming from a location where Air Canada isn’t the best choice, and have a contact with a different airline, we are happy to have a chat with them to see what we can work out to assist you as well!
