The Halifax Nova Scotia Airport is Atlantic Canada's gateway to the world. It is the only airport in Atlantic Canada with 24 hour customs service and US pre clearance. It is the regions main full service airport. The Halifax airport generates 1.27 billion dollars annually towards the Nova Scotia provincial economy. The airport handles over 3.5 million customers each year and has received first place awards the last six years from the Global Airport Service Quality Program.
The Halifax airport is located less than 2 hours from New York, Boston and Toronto and is North America's closest continental link to Europe. The Halifax airport has nearly 5500 employees and an active business community with land, retail and office space for lease.
The closest residential community to the airport is Enfield Nova Scotia. Air Canada Jazz and Can jet are both headquartered in Enfield. Enfield exists in both the Municipality of East Hants and Halifax Regional Municipality and is divided by the Shubenacadie River. Enfield was named by Thomas Donaldson in the late 19th century who moved from Enfield Connecticut. Enfield is a bedroom community for the Halifax Airport and Halifax Regional Municipality.

The 3 villages of Enfield, Elmsdale and Lantz are home to many of the airport employees and their families. These communities offer great amenities and quality of life.
