Edmonton to Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto, or Ottawa - $78 to $223 roundtrip [nonstop flights]

Cheap flights Canada fall and winter travel

Most of the great July and August prices for domestic travel within Canada are now gone.

The focus now is on September and beyond, where the intense competition between 4 of Canada's airlines is still resulting in some very cheap prices throughout the rest of 2021, and as far away as March 2022.

The most interesting prices are the ones between Alberta and Toronto, Kitchener, or Ottawa, where roundtrip flights can be found in the $200s after taxes.

Sadly, September or October is usually the last chance of the year for a vacation within Canada with decent weather.

WestJet, Air Canada vs Flair, Swoop

When it comes to comparing prices between WestJet / Air Canada versus Flair / Swoop, if you have intention of bringing *any* luggage (checked OR carry-on), you should probably add about $100-$120 to Flair and Swoop's roundtrip prices, to give you a fair comparison.

Flair and Swoop's base prices will buy you just a seat on the plane, so don't be fooled by the first price you see on search engines. They're not telling you the whole story.

As a general rule, somewhere around $250 CAD roundtrip including taxes and fees has been the rock bottom price you'll find for non-stop flights between B.C./Alberta and Ontario/Quebec with WestJet or Air Canada.

And with Flair or Swoop, the bottom price will be around $100-$125 CAD roundtrip *before* adding any luggage, and not by coincidence, also around $220-$250 CAD roundtrip with checked luggage or carry-on.

So at the end of the day, if your grand total price is in the ballpark of $200-$250 CAD roundtrip per passenger for a flight from Edmonton to Ontario, you're doing very well. It's a lot better than the $400-$600 roundtrip that Canadians have traditionally paid for travel within our own country over the years.

Are there any requirements such as a negative covid test result for flying within Canada?

There have never been any special requirements, such as having a covid test result, when flying between any combination of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, or Quebec.

Flying between these 4 provinces is essentially identical to pre-pandemic times, and always has been.

Most of the new rules you've heard about are in regards to international travel and entry into Canada.

Vice versa flights also work

Similar roundtrip prices can be found on the reverse routes (Toronto to Edmonton for example).
