We are well into fall and there is that chill in the air.

For many that means looking into what the options are for going south – with no assurances that the weather will be what you were expecting.

John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (Hamilton International) has unveiled its 2023/24 Winter Program featuring many getaway options, including popular sunny destinations in the United States, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico, low-cost connections into Europe with direct flights between Hamilton and Reykjavík, Iceland, along with continued access into Western Canada.

Play Air is a recent addition to airlines that have chosen to make Hamilton a destination airport.

The  Adventure Starts Here! officially takes effect in November with services operated by WestJet, Lynx Air, PLAY, and seasonal airline partners, Air Transat and Sunwing.

“This winter, travellers can start their journey from Hamilton International and enjoy direct flights and easy connections to destinations across Canada, the sunny south, and internationally,” says Cole Horncastle, Executive Managing Director of Hamilton International.

“WestJet has affirmed its long-standing commitment to Hamilton, introducing several popular sun destinations in addition to its established domestic service to/from its Calgary hub.

Lynx is fairly new to Hamilton International Air.

Lynx Air will continue its ultra-affordable flights to Calgary and Vancouver, while PLAY continues to offer low-cost flights to Iceland and onward to Europe. Our seasonal partners, Air Transat and Sunwing, return and join WestJet in offering a range of sunny getaways.

The variety of destinations served by multiple air carriers this winter, combined with the ease and convenience of travelling through Hamilton International, make it an ideal option for vacationers and sun seekers.”

2023/24 Winter Program Highlights:

  • WestJet will offer service to popular sun destinations with new flights to Orlando, Tampa, Cancun, and Punta Cana, while continuing to provide non-stop connectivity to Western Canada with service between Hamilton and Calgary.
  • Lynx will continue to provide ultra-affordable domestic flights to Calgary and offer travellers a convenient connection to Vancouver with its through-flight service.
  • Low-cost, direct flights between Hamilton and Iceland will continue with PLAY, providing seamless connections to over 30 iconic destinations across Europe including Paris, Amsterdam, London, and Frankfurt.
  • Air Transat returns to Hamilton International with service to Cayo Coco, Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, and Cancun.
  • Sunwing resumes service to Cayo Coco, Holguin, Varadero, Punta Cana, and Cancun from Hamilton International.

Cancun – a destination that is a direct flight from the Hamilton International Airport.
