She says flights will be available starting June 4th. It will be  a daily flight leaving in the afternoon and arriving in Halifax during the afternoon. Priddle says this service to Halifax will also help connect passengers to other national airports with bigger networks like Billy Bishop, Toronto Pearson, Montreal and so on.
