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.

    Anything coming up out of Nanaimo or to Winnipeg?

    WestJet has relatively cheap ones from Vancouver to Winnipeg for $197 CAD after taxes in April, May, and June 2022. Flair is $136 CAD roundtrip between late March and September. You don't see any cheap ones out of Nanaimo due to it just being Air Canada and WestJet that fly out of YCD.

    So far the attention for low cost domestic fares from the island (other than Victoria) is out of Comox. Flair is allegedly going to start flying out of there in March to Calgary. And Swoop just announced today they are going to fly between Comox and Edmonton.

    Leigh: There are cheap flights from Vancouver to Regina (just added Vancouver - Regina to the blog post). But unfortunately there are not any from Victoria.

    The only cheap route between all of B.C. and Saskatoon is between Vancouver and Saskatoon ($96-$156 roundtrip in May and June).

    I believe just this weekend AC has eliminated a late non-stop flight from Toronto to Victoria. It left at 8:55pm and was a great connection for flying home from the Caribbean (also my son would take this coming home from university after flying from London ON). It seems now we on the island will have to layover in Toronto to get home too.
