The Park’N Fly lot at Halifax Stanfield International Airport is reopening Wednesday, just in time for March Break.

The lot closed almost two years ago just as COVID-19 started to severely restrict travel. 

"[Halifax International Airport Authority] is looking forward to having the Park’N Fly lot open in time for March Break, giving travellers more choice with three secure and convenient airport parking options: the parkade, the exterior lot, and Park’N Fly," the airport authority said in a news release.

If you plan on using the lot, airport officials recommend making sure you plan for the extra time it takes to park, then take the shuttle to the terminal.

You'll also need to factor in time for checking-in and going through security. HIAA suggests arriving at least 1.5-2 hours before your flight.

The airport's Observation Deck has reopened to the public and you can find out which shops and restaurants are open by clicking here.

According to the federal government rules, all air travellers aged 12 and up need to be fully vaccinated in order to board a flight.

"Upon return to Canada, children under 12 years old, travelling with fully vaccinated adults are no longer required to wait 14 days before attending school, camp, or daycare, and won’t be required to quarantine while awaiting their test result," HIAA explained.

You'll need to check the travel requirements for your destination, which could include showing negative results from a recent COVID-19 test upon arrival. Make sure you have access to the necessary documents throughout your journey.

If you're travelling internationally, you'll likely need to get a COVID-19 test before you return home. You'll also need to fill out the ArriveCan app within 72 hours of landing back in Canada. You can download it before you leave.
