How much are flights to Vancouver?

Unsurprisingly, the closer your local airport is to Vancouver, the cheaper your flight will be. You can grab flights from Alberta for as low as $99 each way during a sale with and airline like Air Canada or Westjet, but prices average out to being a bit closer to the $150 mark.

If you’re flying from cities like Toronto, Montreal or Halifax in the east, expect to pay at least double.

For those travelling on a budget, look into flights to nearby Abbotsford. Both Swoop and Flair fly to Abbotsford instead of Vancouver International Airport. However, it’s about an hour from downtown Vancouver by car and doesn’t have a direct public transit connection to the city. There is a shuttle service available to the city, but at about $35-$40 it’s not cheap and may not be worth the savings on your airfare.

When is the cheapest time to fly to Vancouver?

Vancouver’s peak tourist seasons are the middle of the summer (for those visiting the city and coast) and the middle of winter (for those heading into the mountains for skiing), so you’re most likely to find the cheapest flights during the months in between. Consider travelling in March-May and October-November to get the best prices.

Seat sales from airlines can pop up at any time of year, but usually don’t include travel over long weekends or public holidays.

What is the the cheapest day of the week to fly to Vancouver?

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays tend do be the cheapest days of the week to fly to Vancouver, no matter where in the country you’re departing from.

How far in advance should I book my flight to Vancouver?

Try to book your flights at least four to six weeks in advance. Flight prices tend to increase steeply in the few weeks before departure.

Seat sales from airlines like Air Canada, Westjet and Air Transat are usually for travel a few months in advance, which are usually worth scooping up. In these cases, booking even earlier than four to six weeks could reward you with an even lower fare.
