Inspiration for the musical Come from Away

A former transatlantic crossroads before the jet era, Gander was one of the airports that housed stranded travelers when American airspace was closed due to the events of September 11, 2001; Gander International received 7000 passengers from thirty-eight planes. The incredible hospitality of the Newfoundlanders inspired the musical Come from Away, which ran on Broadway from 2017 to 2022, and continues to spark interest from innumerable "Come-from-Aways" in the people and culture of the island.

Gander hospitality

Our USAirways flight from Dublin to Philadelphia was diverted to Gander due to mechanical problems. The staff at Gander was extremely friendly and welcoming. They added a second internet connection and kept the café open. Thank you for your hospitality.
