Grimacing at the thought of purchasing your next flight to Toronto?
B.C. officials announced Tuesday (June 29) that the province will move into Step 3 of its four-step plan on July 1. Now, British Columbians who have had their hearts set on travel across the country will be able to safely take the skies.
And while travelling from Vancouver back east often costs more than flying to Paris, Flair Airlines is offering a number of domestic deals at a steal.
Right now, the low-cost carrier is offering 40 per cent off of base fares on all flights using the promo code flyto40 for its Canada Day Sale. Unlike many sales, this one has no blackout dates. The sale is valid for travel between June 28 to March 26 and will end at 11:59 p.m. on July 1.
For anyone who is looking to fly to Toronto this year, Flair offers a return deal in mid-September that is hard to beat. The flight departs Vancouver International Airport (YVR) for Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) on Sept. 7 and returns on Sept. 15.
The ticket costs a total of $134.50 CAD with tax included using the flyto40 Canada Day Sale promotion.
What B.C. residents need to know about the new travel rules starting July 1
British Columbians many enjoy travel across Canada rather than only within B.C. The province will also welcome travellers from other provinces to visit B.C
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has laid out travel manners and guidelines for everyone travelling within B.C.:
- getting vaccinated
- pre-trip planning and research before arriving at the destination
- respecting any local travel advisories to isolated and remote communities and Indigenous communities
- following mask guidelines
- respecting personal space and practicing good hygiene, including frequent handwashing
- no travelling for anyone who is sick, and if symptoms develop while travelling - self isolate immediately and contact 811 for guidance and testing
