People are always complaining that Canada is one the most expensive countries in the world to fly, but according to Flytrippers, things are about to change.
WestJet are planning on launching a new ultra low cost carrier airline in 2018 which will be able to offer flights across Canada for as low as $20!
So why is it so cheap? They just don't bother will all the extras. There are no meals, no entertainment systems, no Wi-Fi, no assigned seating, you have to pay extra for your luggage, and you have to be flexible on dates.
So if you've been hoping to plan a trip, Calgary in September is definitely one to consider. With Air Transat, departing September 8 from the Montreal Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport and returning from the Calgary International Airport on September 30, the total for a round-trip flight would be $332 with taxes and fees included.
The only catch is, to get a flight at this price, you'll need to fly "Eco Budget," which means no checked bags and you'll have to pay $34.49 to bring a carry-on, plus another $51.74 if you want to bring a second bag. Moral of the story: make sure to pack light so you can fly cheap.
You may have already missed the Calgary Stampede, but this city in Alberta still has all kinds of beautiful spots to see and exciting things to do. Plus, Banff is only an hour away, so you could totally make a pit stop there, too!
Flight prices were accurate at the time of writing this article but are subject to change.
