Welcome to YSJ!
The Saint John Airport (YSJ) is proud to be one of the first airports in New Brunswick to receive global recognition for its health and safety measures, implemented in response to COVID-19, from the Airports Council International (ACI). To learn more click here.
Effective January 11, all regularly scheduled commercial flights in and out of the Saint John Airport are temporarily suspended until further notice. Air Canada, Sunwing, and Porter Airlines are committed to restoring their flight schedules to YSJ as soon as travel restrictions are lifted and passenger demand returns - perhaps as early as April. Flair Airlines is also planning to launch their new service this year. We look forward to welcoming them back.
Our runways will continue to remain open with our same high-standards and commitment to safe, secure operations; accessible to medevac flights and other required pandemic-related travel and cargo, as well as to other private activity. The Atlantic Flight Centre remains open for private flights, medevac, and their usual aviation services.
The runways are maintained and monitored by airport staff. The local Nav Canada Flight Service Station continues to operate on a 24 x 7 basis. Flight plans and arrangements should be made using the usual process.
Airport terminal building access is essentially closed to the public; all shopping, dining, retail, and airline ticketing are shuttered. However, rental car services remain open, by appointment only. Protective face masks must be worn inside the terminal at all times. Click here to learn more about our COVID-19 plans and policies.
The Saint John Airport remains encouraged by the federal fiscal update and announcement of funding for the aviation sector, including small airports like ours. This announcement reflects the importance the federal government places on the entire travel industry and sustaining it for future service and growth. Click here to learn more.
