Deal alert: Here's 5 ways you can fly from Vancouver to Toronto for under $80 CAD incl. tax

There are so many options right now.
Vancouver, B.C. residents looking to head to Toronto for under $100 can fly with WestJet, Air Transat, Lynx Air, Swoop, and Flair Airlines in 2022.

Locals looking to head back east for under $100 may be surprised by the number of options they have this year. 

While flights from Vancouver to Toronto used to cost over $400 to $500 return, the introduction of new low-cost airlines to Canada's market has dramatically lowered the cost of flights on the popular route. 

Flair Airlines continues to offer some of the best fares in Canada on several routes. The budget airline offers deals on flights across the country, south of the border, and to Mexico throughout the year, too. 

If you're looking to fly directly from Vancouver to Toronto on the cheap this year, some tickets are still available for only $69 including all taxes and fees.

Tickets have started selling quickly, however, which is driving up prices. That said, there are still some low-cost options available, including direct flights from Vancouver to Toronto starting at $79.01 including all taxes and fees.
