That flight will take place on Saturday departing from Halifax at 4:55 p.m. and landing at 6:35 p.m. in Stephenville. A return flight departs Stephenville on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and arrives in Halifax at 10:25 a.m. local time.

“We are extremely excited to announce this partnership with Porter Airlines to service travelers in Western and Southwestern Newfoundland,” Brenda Martin, Stephenville airport manager, said.

She said the people of Bay St. George have been asking and dreaming of Porter Airlines and now they have the opportunity to support Porter at Stephenville airport.

The airline will be offering introductory one-way fares beginning at $163, including all fees and taxes. Flights are now available for booking at www.flyporter.com. Connections to other Porter Airlines destinations are available.
