Halifax Airport

How much time does it ake to go through the airport? If we land at 4:08 scheduled time on a domestic flight (hamilton) is it possible to make the 4:45 time of the Metro X bus? If not, are there any other transportation options. And is it possible to walk from the bus drop off.in downtown to the Westin?

Also, if you are renting a car (from Dollar) and dropping it off at the airport, how long does this take and how lond should you arrive before your flight (domestic with westjet).

You will be tight to make that bus. The airport is not very big, but I think you are going to be VERY tight on time. Other than the bus, you'd have to cab it. The airport is pretty far outside the city (1/2 hour)

You can walk to the Westin, but it's a good 20 minute walk, dragging luggage with you.

If you are renting a car, the rental agencies are in the same area as the luggage pick up. There are only 4 luggage carousels, so that should give you an impression that the area isn't large.

If you are taking a domestic flight, I would plan to be at the airport 2 1/2 hours before my flight. That would give you plenty of time to return the car and check in.

You may make the bus. It should be less than half an hour from when you get off the plane to when you pick up your luggage.
