Voice of Travelers to Churchill

Airfare ticket to Churchill

I travelled to Churchilld for polar bear viewing. I booked a ticket last minute with Calm Air. The ticket to Churchill was not expensive even if I purchased it just a week before my flight. The ticket agent offered me the service of fast transfer from Churchill airport to the city, so I took it. Calm Air gave a good service and when I decided to change the ticket date for returning back from Churchill, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend Calm Air for a reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to Churchill.

Visiting St. John's for a seeing polar bears

I visited St. John's last autumn with bunch of friends who invited me to come along to see the polar bears. We booked the group airfare ticket to Churchill and paid for it together. The price of a group ticket was thus cheaper than if each one of us would buy an individual ticket. We flew to Churchill with Calm Air. Since the ticket was not expensive, we decided to upgrade for the first class at the airport. The service aboard Calm Air was very good. Churchill is an amazing place and I would love to visit it again if we put a group together to go to Churchill on a group ticket again.
