It's never too early to book a flight deal for peak travel periods. This unadvertised sale is a great example with flights to Brazil for Carnival 2020 starting from $424 roundtrip.
Air Canada is starting new nonstop service from Montreal to Sao Paulo in December and there is an all-out fare war going on between multiple airlines. There are even a few routes on Copa from Canada to Brazil in the $350 USD/$470 CAD range for roundtrip flights in September.
A more widespread sale is available from cities across the U.S. and Canada and includes travel dates surrounding Carnival 2020, which is officially from February 21 - 26, 2020, but there are festivities going on for weeks before these dates.
Rules and restrictions vary by route. Travel dates range from August through March. Most of December and January are blacked out, but there are some available dates in late February for Carnival.
This sale is unadvertised and fares may jump at any moment.
This is a widespread sale so have a look at all of our fares to Sao Paulo (GRU) and Rio de Janeiro (GIG). Use the flights to Sao Paulo as a jumping off point if you intend to visit Rio or Salvador for the Carnival. Domestic flights within Brazil are cheap.
All fares include a carry-on bag plus a personal item and all airlines except GOL include two free checked bags. Routes from Florida on GOL have a small $15 fee for the first checked bag and $35 for the second.
All airlines except GOL include advanced seat assignments. You can pay a fee to choose a specific seat on GOL.
As an example, I found a flight departing Montreal YUK on Wednesday, February 19, returning from Sao Paulo GRU on Thursday, February 27, for $449 USD/$604 CAD roundtrip.
