Vancouver to Bangkok, Thailand - $499 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Bangkok, Thailand

On Thursday, July 13th at 11:55 PM, Air China is going to be having a sale on their flights from Vancouver to Bangkok, Thailand for $499 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

There will also be fares from Vancouver to Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Qingdao, China for the same price.

As well as fares from Vancouver to Manila, Philippines - like they had the last time around with a similar sale.

But with so many low fares to mainland China these days, it's really the fares to SE Asia (Thailand and the Philippines) that jump out as a great price.

Air China's flights have a stop in Beijing, China each way.

Availability for travel

September, October, November, early December 2017

January, February, March, April 2018

blackout dates:

October 5-15, 2017 (outbound flights)
September 22 to October 3, 2017 (inbound flights)

How to find and book these flights

1. - On Thursday July 13th, around 11:55 PM PST, go to the Air China flash sale page...

LINK: Air China flash sale page

NOTE: Air China usually releases theses fares around 11:55 PM PST.

2. Scroll down to the bottom, where the 'Flight Search' box can be found.

3. Search for a flight from Vancouver to ...

Bangkok, Thailand (BKK)
Manila, Philippines (MNL)
Shanghai, China (PVG)
Guangzhou, China (CAN)
Qingdao, China (TAO)

TIP: The last time there was a similar sale, some people had trouble using their credit card with the default payment option on Air China's website.

The Air China website also allows you to choose Paypal as the credit card processor, and that seemed to work better. A Paypal account is not required.

You can also try registering for an account on the Air China website ahead of time. It might make things faster/easier when it comes time to book.

Update 7/13 @ 9:55 PM PST - Kayak is showing these fares already, but when you click through to the Air China website they're not actually loaded yet...

You can try starting with this Kayak search, and then adjusting it to the dates you're thinking of trying on the Air China website at midnight tonight.

Kayak search: Vancouver to Bangkok, Thailand

It *could* be indication of which dates will actually be available, and the layover times (but not guaranteed).

Hopefully they really are the flights with 3 hour connections in Beijing which would be fairly fast flights for YVR to Bangkok.

The info below is just speculation on what *might* become available at midnight tonight, based on what Kayak is showing.


September: lots of dates in the first half, up to September 21. A few in the second half: Sep 18 to 20, 21, 21 to Oct 4.

October: Just seeing Oct 1 to Oct 15, 16, 17, 18, 21. Not seeing any in the second half.

November: not seeing any in the first half, unless you depart on October 31, returning Nov 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. The second half has more.

December: You can find fares up to December 13th. There won't be any return dates in December past that point. Christmas will be off limits as always, unfortunately.


January: lot of dates

February: there doesn't seem to be any return dates for the first 3 weeks. But longer trips are possible. example: Feb 4, 6, 7, 8, 10 to Feb 22, 23, 24

March: lots of dates

April: lots of dates

May: The latest you can return looks to be May 19, 2018.

Update 7/14 @ 10 AM PST - The following dates are still working this morning for 2 passengers to Bangkok, Thailand.

(all other date ranges besides the ones below seem to be sold out, or there might be single seats left, I only checked for 2 or more).

The links below will take you to a search on Kayak for 2 passengers. Click through from there to the Air China website. The total shown on the Air China website will be for 2 people.

For longer trips you can try mixing and matching the departure and return dates from the dates you found on Kayak or the list below, and running another search on Kayak. The maximum trip length is 3 months.

Sep 5, 6, 9 to Sep 19 (half day layover on the way back)

March 19 to April 4

March 26, 28 to April 10, 11, 12, 14

Early to mid April, quite a few dates -
early to mid April
second week of April to late April

Late April to mid May, quite a few dates
