"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YLW." - Chris Myden

Kelowna to Alberta, BC, or Ontario - $76 to $172 roundtrip after taxes [spring, summer, fall travel]


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, and sometimes even a third.

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.

Not to mention Lynx Air, who is already selling tickets and will begin flying in April out of Kelowna, Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary.

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 5 or 6 years).

It's conceivable that soon 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.
