While the airline, which is also WestJet's discount carrier, doesn't fly directly out of Vancouver International Airport (YVR), there are multiple low-cost flight options out of nearby Abbotsford International Airport (YXX).
Flying from the Metro Vancouver area at a steal with Swoop
There is also a bus that travels from Metro Vancouver to the YXX airport. A one-way transfer costs about $46.82 and there are several departures throughout the day.
Travellers will be picked up from Vancouver's Pacific Central Station, located at 1150 Station St., and they will ride the bus for just under one-and-a-half hours (depending on traffic) to Abbotsford. They are dropped off outside of the main terminal entrance at YXX in Abbotsford.
There are great deals available departing from Abbotsford, including ultra-cheap tickets to Edmonton for under $20.
For example, a one-way flight from Abbotsford to Edmonton regularly costs as little as $18.98 for the lowest fare class. With the promotion, however, travellers can take 30 per cent off the base fare. The base fare for the flight is $7.02, which means that $2.11 can be subtracted from the total. The final cost of the ticket works out to $15.87 including all taxes and fees.
One-way flights across Canada out of Abbotsford are also extremely affordable, with tickets to Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) starting at $48.99 on select dates.
With the promotion, travellers can take 30 per cent off the base fare, which is $35.59, which means that $10.68 can be subtracted from the total. The final cost of the ticket works out to $38.31 including all taxes and fees.
