Air Canada offers a daily direct flight to and from London, WestJet goes direct to Dublin and Gatwick. United Airlines flies to the USA. The main carriers:
St John's International Airport
St John's International Airport is 6km north of the city on Portugal Cove Rd (Rte 40).
A government-set flat rate of $25 (plus $3 for each extra passenger) is charged by taxis to go from the airport to downtown hotels and B&Bs; Citywide Taxi provides the official service. However, when you make the trip in reverse – ie from town to the airport – taxis run on meters and should cost a few bucks less.
DRL sends one bus daily each way between St John's and Port aux Basques ($126, cash only, 13½ hours) via the 905km-long Hwy 1, making 25 stops en route. It leaves at 7:30am from Memorial University's Student Centre, in CA Pippy Park.
Car & Motorcycle
Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, National and Thrifty have offices at the airport. Rent RVs and motorhomes from Islander RV.
