However, when it reached Halifax and was unable to land, the plane was forced to circle around and divert to Fredericton to wait out the weather.
The captain didn't want passengers to go hungry, so he made the call to order them pizzas.
While the plane was stuck during a snowstorm, the pilot of the plane did a small act of kindness that garnered a lot of praise. This left passengers on an Air Canada flight heading towards Halifax stuck as the Fredericton airport for over eight hours.
The aircraft reportedly seated over 150, although it's unclear how many passengers were aboard the flight.
Bill Karsten, a city councilor from Halifax, tweeted a picture of a flight attendant doling out the pizza.
"They looked like they appreciated the pizza ... they were pretty calm and pretty cheery", she said. There was lots of help, there were a couple of Air Canada Jazz pilots that were traveling on the plane and they were helping to pick up the pizza and distribute it.
"He walked entirely down the length of the plane just to make sure we knew what was going on and whatnot, before departing to Halifax", Karsten told CBC.
