Greater Moncton Airport is 6 miles from downtown Moncton, and only 4 miles from the francophone city of Dieppe, which is also worth visiting for its historic charm and huge shopping center. If you want to use hotels in Moncton as a base for exploring the wider Maritime Provinces, the easiest option is a car rental from one of six on-site companies at the airport. Rental desks are inside the terminal on the main level. An hour's drive from the airport gets you to either Fundy or Kouchibouguac national parks. The dramatically scenic Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy are only 30 minutes away.
Alternatively, buy tickets in advance for the Maritime Bus, a reservation-based service that connects the airport with downtown Moncton, Dieppe, and cities throughout New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Several hotels close to the airport offer shuttle services for their guests. Call the hotel to make arrangements, then head to the designated pick-up area outside the terminal.
