The Eighteenth International Conference on
Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications

July 1 - July 7, 2018

Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada


Halifax is serviced by the Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ). There are direct flights from all major cities in Central and Eastern Canada, several hubs in the U.S., and from London, England, as well as (during the Summer months) from Frankfurt, Germany, with Condor, and from Reykjavik, Iceland, with Icelandair. These last two airlines offer convenient connections from numerous other European airports.

Important: If you come from abroad, please check the entry requirements for your country of citizenship. US citizens require proper identification, such as a valid US passport. Citizens of most other countries will require at least an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) which can be obtained online and currently costs $7 CAD. But please check for possible visa requirements.

Ground Transportation to/from the Airport

The airport is located about 35 km (or 174 furlong) from Halifax, and a taxi ride is therefore rather expensive. A very inexpensive alternative ($3.50) is public transit, namely Route 320 which goes to the downtown core.

Please see some detailed arrival information, including maps.

Car Rental

Most major rental companies are represented at the airport; they are listed here. Some also have locations in downtown Halifax.

Money Matters

While most goods and services, even small amounts, can be paid with any major credit card, I suggest that you get some Canadian cash upon arrival. There are ATMs at several locations inside the airport. There is also a currency exchange counter in the arrival area of the airport. Taxis typically accept credit cards, but for the Bus 320 you will need exact change, i.e., coins.

The Canadian Dollar fluctuates slightly but regularly against other currencies. For the current rate see a currency converter. On May 1, 2018, the rates were roughly as follows:

1 EUR = $1.56 CAD;   1 GBP = $1.77 CAD;   1 USD = $1.28 CAD.
