Locals looking to fly all the way across the country at a steal have an ultra-low-cost, direct option with Air Canada right now.
While it used to cost upwards of $700 round-trip to fly from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ), travellers can fly for about half that price thanks to a couple of new options.
Flair Airlines and WestJet offer a couple of low-cost itineraries for under $400 return but they involve at least one stopover in each direction.
Metro Vancouverites can enjoy a new nonstop option with Air Canada starting May 1 with flights on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
For example, a round-trip, direct flight that departs on May 25 and returns on June 2 costs a total of $369.16 including all taxes and fees.
You can find other cheap, round-trip Vancouver flights to Nova Scotia with Air Canada throughout May and into June. These prices are about $244 lower than usually, with trips to Halifax typically costing between $465 and $1,150, according to Google Flights.
