Open Jaw: Seattle to London and then Amsterdam to Vancouver (or Victoria) - $159 CAD roundtrip including taxes

London, UK and Amsterdam, Netherlands

WestJet is showing some ridiculously cheap open jaw flights involving Seattle, London, Amsterdam, and Vancouver.

You can fly from Seattle to London, UK and then from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Vancouver (or Victoria) for $159 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Of course there are a few caveats here:

1. You need to find your way to Seattle, one way.

According to BusBud.com public transport options range from $42-$68 CAD. Amtrak service from Vancouver to Seattle restarted on September 27th.

2. A flight between London and Amsterdam is not included. A typical flight costs $75-$100 CAD between LHR and AMS. Or slightly cheaper from LGW ($50-$75 CAD).

UPDATE @ 4 PM PST - It appears all dates have sold out. However, some people are reporting that they can still find cheap ones through WestJet's 'Member Exclusive Fares' and using their WestJet Dollars to purchase (requires sign-in on WestJet's website). I've posted some info about this below.

Availability for travel

November, first half of December 2022

How to find and book this deal

Step 1

Go to FlightHub or the WestJet website.

Step 2 - Search for a Multi-City flight like this one:

Leg #1: Seattle (SEA) to London (LON)
Leg #2: Amsterdam (AMS) to Vancouver (YVR)

For Leg #2, Amsterdam (AMS) to Victoria (YYJ) or Nanaimo (YCD) also works.

For Leg #1 use one of the following dates

Nov 25, 26, 30
Dec 3, 5, 6

-- previously available dates --

Nov 7, 8, 16, 17, 20, 22, 29
Dec 1, 2, 8, 9
Jan 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31
Feb 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

For Leg #2 use one of the following dates

Nov 17, 19, 22, 24
Jan 14, 17, 19, 21, 24, 26, 28, 31
Feb 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 28
Mar 2, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16

-- previously available dates --

Nov 26, 29
Dec 3, 6, 8

NOTE: If you see an overnight layover in Calgary for one of the legs try adjusting the date by one day (forward or backward) and search again. You can definitely find flights without overnight layovers in both directions.

Common Question: If we don't want to take the Seattle flight, can we just skip it and fly from Calgary to London?

Unfortunately not, airlines usually cancel the remainder of a ticket once a leg is intentionally missed. This article attempts to explain why they do that.

You may still be able to find some of these using WestJet Dollars if you have some in your account

1. Go to the the WestJet website and sign-in to your WestJet account (required for the WestJet website to display 'Member Exclusive Fares' in WestJet Dollars).

2. Change the 'Trip Type' to 'Multi-City' and search for a Multi-City flight like this one:

Leg #1: Seattle (SEA) to London (LON)
Leg #2: Amsterdam (AMS) to Vancouver (YVR)

For Leg #2, Amsterdam (AMS) to Victoria (YYJ) or Nanaimo (YCD) also works.

For Leg #1 try one of the following dates

Jan 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 29, 31
Feb 1, 3, 5

For Leg #2 try one of the following dates

Jan 28
Feb 16, 18, 21, 23, 28
Mar 2, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16

3. After your search completes you'll see fares that are somewhere around $617 CAD per leg. But if you click on 'View' under the $600-something price, you may find that it shows you a 'Member Exclusive Fare' for, say, 26 WestJet Dollars + $40 CAD, like this...

...and then 34 WestJet Dollars + $52 CAD for the way home, like this...

NOTE: It is also possible to buy WestJet Dollars, but it's a ripoff (100 WestJet Dollars costs $200 Canadian). After signing into your WestJet account go to this page for info. The purchase of WestJet Dollars is through a third party site (Points.com). There is currently a promotion to save 35% off of the ripoff price.
