Saskatoon Airport Hotels: Your One-Stop Towards Charter Sun Destinations

The Comfort Suites Saskatoon airport hotel is only a seven-minute drive to YXE.

The Comfort Suites Saskatoon airport hotel is only a seven-minute drive to YXE.

We’re coming up to the time of year where many Canadians flock south. With its convenient location in central Canada, Skyxe Saskatoon Airport (YXE) is often used as a layover stop by major airlines and is also becoming popular for direct flights to warmer destinations. With the number of charter flight deals being offered, it helps to find Saskatoon airport hotels such as the Comfort Suites Saskatoon that are not only conveniently located nearby, but also offer all the comforts and amenities of home in case you need to catch an early flight, have an overnight layover, or have had a flight delayed or cancelled due to poor weather.

Getting to the Happiest Place on Earth

Get ready to pack your bathing suit and don your Mickey Mouse ears, as Canadian airline WestJet has just become the first carrier to launch non-stop flights between Skyxe Saskatoon Airport (YXE) and Orlando International Airport (MCO). WestJet started the weekly service Dec. 7, with flights taking place on Fridays. They depart YXE at 2:30 p.m. (CT) and arrive at MCO at a respectable 5:50 p.m. (ET).

Those from out of town can lessen the stress of catching their direct flight to Orlando by staying at Saskatoon hotels by the airport. The Comfort Suites Saskatoon is located only 5.5 km (7 minutes!) from the YXE terminal. This gives you plenty of time to start your morning with our complimentary hot breakfast buffet.

Snowbirds Can Now Fly Directly South

Say goodbye to the snow and hello to two of the sunniest places in the US. In addition to Orlando, WestJet is now offering direct flights to Las Vegas and Phoenix from YXE three times a week until April. The Vegas flights depart Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, while the Phoenix flights run on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

Those travelling from our Saskatoon accommodations to Vegas during this time may want to score tickets for some upcoming sports events and shows. This includes:

  • Canadian chanteuse Celine Dion final performances at the Caesars Palace Colosseum, various dates through to June, 2019
  • NHL home games with the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena, various dates through to April, 2019
  • Cirque du Soleil, six different shows including KA, Michael Jackson ONE, The Beatles’ LOVE, Mystere, O, and Zumanity, various locations and ongoing dates.

A Straight Line to Other Sunny Destinations

If lying on a beach is more to your taste, WestJet is now offering non-stop flights to Puerto Vallarta on Wednesdays and Cancún on Mondays and Saturdays. Sunwing Airlines also offers scheduled and charter flights from Saskatoon to destinations such as Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and other resort areas in the Caribbean and Mexico.

Why not enjoy a stopover at our Saskatoon hotel by the airport before you catch your flight. Stretch your legs with a dip in our Saskatoon hotel with swimming pool, or get a workout in our 24-hour fitness centre before or after your flight, and enjoy a restful sleep in one of our quiet and well-appointed suites featuring king or queen-size beds with pillow-top mattresses.
