You are currently viewing Ultra Low-Cost Carriers For Travelers In Halifax

Ultra Low-Cost Carriers (ULCCs) are great for travelers who want to explore more and fly for less. Here is Flytrippers’ overview of ULCCs in the Halifax area.

Our mission is to help you travel more, which is why our Halifax cheap flights deals page is our main focus… but we also want to share great travel tips, especially about ULCCs.

We know this business model very well and we want to become your reference for all things that save you money on travel… and ULCCs are great for that! Pack light, forego the frills… and travel at a much lower price than ever before!

ULCC deals can be found on our deals page, but just know that as of now almost all our great deals are still on regular airlines, without the ULCC restrictions. ULCC flights have a special “ULCC” tag in the top right corner of the deal cover image:


We have already been seeing many one-ways within Canada on sale regularly for under $100. Flights under $200 roundtrip are almost all thanks to Ultra Low-Cost Carriers: these airlines really are the greatest thing to happen to the aviation industry in, well, ever.

If you follow our content regularly, you know that we’re really excited about the arrival of ULCCs in Canada. The absence of such airlines was one of the main reasons why airfares are so expensive in Canada, compared to Europe (where I’ve flown for $10), Asia (where I’ve flown for $15), the US (where I’ve flown for $15) and even more and more developing countries, like Peru (where I’ve flown for $20).

So let’s take a look at ULCCs in the Halifax area, because I won’t get into all the details about this business model again: we already covered Swoop’s launch in Canada and already have a few interesting articles about ULCCs: How Ultra Low-Cost Carriers Work and The Most Common Myths About ULCCs… with much more to come.

By the way, I’ve flown 100+ flights on ULCCs overall on 15 different ULCCs and I can definitely tell you that the experience is great. To see for yourself, you can read my detailed review of Swoop, Canada’s newest ULCC and my detailed review of WOW air, a transatlantic ULCC… and again, look out for much more ULCC reviews and content here in the coming weeks.


Ultra Low-Cost Carriers In Halifax

Luckily for Halifax travelers, you haven’t been ignored by ULCCs as some regions have been, although you only have a few destination options. You can see the exhaustive list of destinations in just a second.



Flair and Swoop serve Halifax, so both of these airlines are guaranteed to lower airfares for travelers in Nova Scotia.

Despite the limited choices, you can often still save money with connections… or even sometimes by combining these flights with a great deal from Toronto for example.


List Of Ultra Low-Cost Carrier Destinations

Here is the destination served directly from Halifax by Ultra Low-Cost Carriers… you can then connect to many other destinations, although the ULCC price advantage isn’t always as huge with connections.

Flair: Edmonton (YEG), Hamilton-Toronto (YHM)

Swoop: Hamilton-Toronto (YHM), London, ON (YXU)


The best way to find the lowest price if you are looking for specific dates and destinations is always to use our flight search tool that will compare all airlines for you (no airline can have the cheapest price 100% of the time, you should always compare).

And if you’re flexible, follow these instructions to know how to find the cheapest dates for your specific destination or even the cheapest destinations for your specific dates.

But again, to see flight deals from all airlines, you should check out our Halifax cheap flight deals page regularly. Buying a flight at 50% off during a deal will always be the best way to save money on flights.

And make sure you subscribe to our free newsletter (like 60,000+ other Canadians already are) to get all the great flight deals (and our many travel tips) directly into your inbox, specially curated for Haligonians.

Finally, consider taking up travel hacking. It’s a great way to get free travel (even better than cheap travel right?) and we have a brand new section coming soon with a lot of information. In the meantime, you can check out our ranking of the best credit cards in Canada, many of which give you hundreds of dollars in free travel.
