Vancouver or Victoria to Canadian Cities for Spring & Summer Travel - $100s/$200s roundtrip

Canada

International flight prices continue to be pretty boring as we wait for more flight capacity to return, but domestic flight prices within Canada continue to shine, and cheap prices are available on dates throughout 2022.

It was not that long ago you would easily be paying a minimum of $500 roundtrip after taxes to fly from Western Canada to Ontario or Quebec or vice versa. Those same routes are now routinely in the ballpark for less than half that price.

Back then you had two choices, WestJet or Air Canada. Then Air Transat started flying certain domestic routes, which helped with prices between major cities, such as Vancouver to Toronto. Then Flair entered the mix, starting with cheap flights from smaller Canadian airports, and gradually worked their way into the larger airports.

WestJet responded to this new upstart named Flair by creating Swoop to compete in the low cost carrier space.

And then there's Porter, who has been biding their time in Eastern Canada, but now appears poised to finally expand across Canada next year with their 80 new aircraft.

And last, and perhaps deservedly least, is Jetlines who is claiming to finally be getting off the ground in 2022. (It should be noted that Jetlines has made similar claims for the last 6 or 7 years).

It's conceivable that by this time next year Canada will have 4 or 5 airlines competing on some popular domestic routes.

Yes, many routes within Canada are still dominated by 1 or 2 airlines, keeping prices high on those routes (Air Canada and WestJet still operate about 80% of domestic flights). Most places with less than 200,000 people are still going to have expensive domestic flights and limited choices.

But I think to say that Canada's domestic market has a real lack of competition is no longer true like it once was.

Exploring for cheap flights

If you click on the links below, it will take you to an example Google Flights search you can start with.

When you get to Google Flights, you can click on the departure date box to open the calendar view and browse for the cheapest dates to fly.

If you open the calendar view on Google Flights you can adjust the trip length at the bottom.

Promo codes

Air Canada's Boxing Day Promo Code (25% off base fares) can be used to bring down the price of their flights a bit further, if you book by December 28th at midnight.

One of the better deals are Air Canada's flights from Vancouver to Toronto. Using the promo code, you can find flights in the first half of 2022 for as low as $205 CAD roundtrip after taxes. (Air Transat's flights are still slightly cheaper).

There are also a few nonstop flights from Victoria to Toronto available in May for $216 CAD roundtrip after taxes.

WestJet also has a very similar Boxing Day promo code, also valid until December 28th at midnight.

Start with the Google Flights links below, look for the cheapest dates with Air Canada or WestJet, and then try those dates using the promo codes above.
