Ontario to Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton for $150-$250 CAD roundtrip [nonstop flights]

Cheap flights Canada fall and winter travel

Most of the great summer prices for domestic travel within Canada are now gone as Canadians started their return to the skies.

The focus now is on September and beyond, where the intense competition between 4 of Canada's airlines is still resulting in some very cheap prices throughout the rest of 2021, and as far away as March 2022.

The most interesting prices are the ones between Ontario and Western Canada (Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Calgary / Banff, Edmonton) where roundtrip flights can be found in the mid-$200s after taxes.

Sadly, September or October is usually the last chance of the year for a vacation within Canada with decent weather.

WestJet, Air Canada vs Flair, Swoop

When it comes to comparing prices between WestJet / Air Canada versus Flair / Swoop, if you have intention of bringing *any* luggage (checked OR carry-on), you should probably add about $100-$120 to Flair and Swoop's roundtrip prices, to give you a fair comparison.

Flair and Swoop's base prices will buy you just a seat on the plane, so don't be fooled by the first price you see on search engines. They're not telling you the whole story.

As a general rule, somewhere around $250 CAD roundtrip including taxes and fees has been the rock bottom price you'll find for non-stop flights between Ontario/Quebec and B.C./Alberta with WestJet or Air Canada.

And with Flair or Swoop, the bottom price will be around $100-$125 CAD roundtrip *before* adding any luggage, and not by coincidence, around $220-$250 CAD roundtrip with any checked luggage or carry-on.

So at the end of the day, if your grand total price is in the ballpark of $250 CAD roundtrip per passenger, you're doing very well. It's still a lot better than the $400-$600 roundtrip that Canadians have traditionally paid for travel within our own country over the years.

Are there any requirements such as a negative covid test result for flying within Canada?

There have never been any special requirements, such as having a covid test result, when flying between any combination of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, or Quebec.

Flying between these 4 provinces is essentially identical to pre-pandemic times, and always has been.

Most of the new rules you've heard about are in regards to international travel and entry into Canada.

Vice versa flights also work

Similar prices can be found on the reverse routes (Vancouver to Toronto for example).
