Deal alert: You can fly direct from Vancouver to Montreal for only $69

Say, "Bonjour."
Flair Airlines offers the lowest price on Google flights for the route connecting YVR in Vancouver and YUL in Montreal in 2023.

Vancouverites looking to visit the 'City of Saints' on the cheap have several options this spring.

Montreal is known for its expansive range of restaurants and boutiques to suit every taste and budget, as well as some of the best nightlife in Canada. There are also several festivals held throughout the year, offering endless things to do.

And, of course, many people simply love it for its European charm. 

Flair Airlines continues to offer the lowest price on the popular route connecting Vancouver International Airport (YVR) with Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport (YUL) in Montreal. 

Starting in May, a quick search on the Google Flights price calendar shows numerous one-way, direct flight options for under $70 including all taxes and fees. While prices appear to start at $67 through some third-party suppliers, tickets booked directly through Flair Airlines only cost a few dollars more, at $69. It is always advised to book directly through the airline, particularly if the supplier doesn't have a brick-and-mortar location or positive reviews. 

Once you find one of the dates that work with your schedule, you will be navigated off Google Flight's travel platform and onto Flair Airlines' website. From here, ensure that you review the options for the price that you are booking. The lowest price is a 'bare bundle,' which means that it doesn't provide you with any flexibility, extra bags, seat selection, or other additional features.

Booking Vancouver flights with Flair Airlines in the wake of travel uncertainty 

Discount airline Flair Airlines came under fire recently after nearly 2,000 travellers were stranded in destinations across the country when their flights were cancelled at the eleventh hour following the seizure of four aircraft.

Several people have shared personal "horror" stories with V.I.A. in recent months after flights were cancelled close to boarding and they experienced difficulties getting new flights. However, the carrier continues to offer the lowest prices out of YVR.

You must pay an extra fee for bags with Flair Airlines. You can take a personal item but anything else will cost you, including a piece of carry-on luggage.
