Canada has been enjoying rising popularity as a holiday and adventure destination every year and rightfully so. From glorious nature spectacles to breathtaking coastlines and modern city skylines, Canada is easily a home for any kind of traveler. With many airlines from continents like Europe continuously opening new routes to Canada, letís try to find out when and where to fly and how we could find those cheaper tickets!
With 518 airports in Canada, it might get a little bit confusing, but the focus for the international travelers should always be the on main airports and biggest airports.
Calgary International Airport. Located only 12km from downtown Vancouver, itís the second busiest airport in Canada with daily non-stop flights to Asia, Europe, USA, Oceania, and Mexico.
Vancouver International Airport. Named best airport for overall service and quality in 2018, it comes with both domestic and international flights and is located 10 km from the Perth central district.
Toronto Pearson International Airport. One of the most important airports in the country handling nearly 50 million passengers each year with over one thousand daily departures.
Montreal Trudeau International Airport. One of the main gateways to Canada with more than 60% of its passengers are from non-domestic flights.
Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. Home Base for First Air and the second busiest airport in Canada in terms of passenger traffic.
In beautiful Canada, it basically goes down to two main reasons that are summer and winter, while months in between like April, is the worst time to fly, as it is too late for winter activities and too early for summer attractions
Extra Tip: If you find yourself flying within Canada then departing on Tuesday and returning on Friday have been found to be the cheapest days to fly domestically.
Do Research. One of the most important steps you can take is first checking Google Flights to compare the whole year using their calendar tools. Followed by Skyscanner or Momondo using the dates found on Google Flights .
Be Flexible. Always try to stay flexible, not only with dates but also with the airports and even looking for connecting flights, the wider your selection is, the more chances to hit the jackpot!.
Timing is Everything. According to various sources, the best day for booking cheap tickets is on Tuesday while the weekends are busy in general.
Canada is no exception to charming Easter and especially Christmas holidays. While prices will definitely skyrocket for these occasions, there are few things to consider if you are looking to fly in on these festive holidays.
Booking very early, from eight to eleven months earlier can score the cheapest tickets than waiting for the last minute.
Westjet - With mixed reviews it depends on which aircraft you end up with on the day. (as they have a new Dreamliner in their schedule).
Air Canada Ė As a Star Aliance carrier they offer a few more option within Canada and from the UK - Their Manchester to Toronto service is used for a lot of their onward business. Service and inflight (from the UK) is better than Westjet or Air Transit
Air Transat - Another with mixed reviews but they do offer really good prices (if booked at the right time) for the summer months to Canada.
KLM/Air France - Flying from almost all over the UK to Amsterdam KLM/Air France offer a wide range of flights and destinations. They do have a decent business class services with lie flat beds (depending on aircraft).
British Airways - With most flights out of Heathrow you can catch a domestic flight to meet up for your entire journey. British Airways do have a premium economy cabin that we sometimes find costing not much more and is often a better service.
