Which airlines have Boxing Day flight sales?

While availability changes every year, we’ve seen Boxing Day flight deals from airlines including Air Canada, Westjet, Porter and Air Transat.

Plus, if you’re flying international – keep an eye out for airlines based in a country you’re looking to fly to.

For example Middle Eastern carrier like Emirates and Qatar are known to have Boxing Day sales, which can help you get to the Middle East, Africa and Asia for less. Air New Zealand, which can get also get you to Australia and the South Pacific islands, also tends to host a Boxing Day sale.

How can I get the best Boxing Day flight deal?

Taking advantage of the flight sales during Boxing Day can definitely get you more more value for money, so here are some tips to help you get the flight you want.

  • Be flexible with your dates. Usually, the further out you are from the date you’re planning to leave, the cheaper the flight may be.
  • Go anywhere. Don’t go into the sales looking for a specific destination or you may end up disappointed that you can’t get a deal to the place you want to go. Instead, have a broader range of places or settle on the simple idea of a beach holiday or city break instead. Let the prices guide you to your next holiday spot and you may just find somewhere new to love.
  • Know when the sales start and finish. We all know that sales work on a first-come-first-served basis, so make sure you’re on your computer when the sale starts to get the best offers.
  • Check to see what has launched early. Just because Boxing Day technically starts at midnight, it doesn’t mean the sales do too. Many airlines have end-of-year or Christmas sales that fall over Boxing Day, but are actually available on other dates, too.
  • Cut back on bags where you can. This is particularly important if you’re flying on a budget carrier, as luggage is one of the biggest problems that they have. Most budget carriers charge an extra fee if you want to check in your bags.

What should I know about booking flights in the Boxing Day sales during COVID-19?

If you feel stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to decide whether to travel now, here are a few things to consider before booking that may give you some peace of mind.

  • Flexible bookings: Many airlines are offering flexible fares if you’re unable to travel. Westjet and Air Canada both have flexible booking terms if plans change after your booking.
  • COVID-safe measures by airlines All airlines should have safety measures in place. Transport Canada has made it mandatory that all passengers and crew older than six years old must wear an approved mask on board.
