Vancouver to Calgary | $229 roundtrip including taxes
Air Canada and WestJet are currently matching each other on some surprisingly decent roundtrip prices between Vancouver and Calgary, a route that has been very expensive the last few years (it's not uncommon to pay $350-$450).
True price drops on flights within Canada are very rare, despite what travel marketers would like to have Canadians believe, due to the fact that we have very limited competition on flights within Canada.
Update 1: Feb 19 - Unfortunately it looks like this unadvertised fare war between Air Canada and WestJet has subsided. Prices look to be back above the $400s.
Update 2: Feb 20 - Air Canada's prices seem to be cheap again. WestJet's are still back to normal.
The date range applicable for the cheaper fares seems to be between now and June 2014.
