Are you dreaming of taking a bite out of the big apple on the cheap?

Whether that's a unique shopping experience in Soho, a massive slice of foldable pizza in Brooklyn, or simply getting lost in the vibrant lights of Times Square — New York has something for everyone.

Right now, there are several tickets from Vancouver to the 'city that doesn't sleep' for under $400 CAD including all taxes and fees. 

For example, a flight departing Vancouver International Airport (YVR) on Jan. 26, 2022, to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and returning on Feb. 1, 2022, costs a total of $380.74 CAD including all taxes and fees. There is a stopover in Calgary in both directions, although each of them is under three hours.

Discover New York

NYC offers endless things to see and do, as well as a variety of places to stay. Of course, staying in Manhattan or right in Times Square typically costs a bit more, but it may be worthwhile to stay downtown. Also, a CityPASS for New York gets you discounted admission into most of the city’s big attractions. If you purchase one before you start visiting, it can reduce the overall cost of your trip.

You can book your ticket online through Google Flights.
