If you're looking to spend some time in Europe during the off-season, this new deal offers a round-trip ticket for a fraction of the regular price.
Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is situated between and above Germany and Belgium and makes an ideal place to explore much of western Europe.
While the country's main international airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), continues to see lengthy flight delays and cancellations, the Dutch Hub tends to see less traffic in the fall. Additionally, AMS Chief Executive Operator Dick Benschop announced on Sept. 15 that he was stepping down from his role amid the ongoing congestion, according to Bloomberg.
If you're looking to visit the Dutch capital following the summer chaos, WestJet is offering a return fare for less than you might pay to fly across Canada.
