We're here to let you in on a little secret. It looks like tickets on Air Canada to destinations in Australia are even cheaper than advertised! When booking through a third-party site like Priceline or Orbitz, we've noticed already cheap fares to Oz dropping by an additional $200-300 lower than the posted rates, mates!
The cheapest flights we've found are for February through April departures with fares from West Coast airports starting at $633 roundtrip, and just $788+ on itineraries leaving East Coast cities!
Your tourism dollars can play a big part in Australia's recovery efforts to help bounce back from recent bushfires, so what better time than now to book that dream trip Down Under.
- Travel Period: Lowest fares can be found from mid-February through the end of April, but price drops apply on itineraries beyond that travel window.
- Travel Days of the Week: Cheapest travel days are on Monday and Wednesdays for most city pairs. However, other travel days from Sunday through Thursday may be available on select routes.
Some itineraries, mainly from East Coast airports, may require two connections. If your nearest airport isn't listed below, that doesn't mean it's not on sale. Nearly all routes that are operated by Air Canada are receiving these price drops, so check and see if you can find an itinerary with a hidden price drop.
This sale is unadvertised and fares may jump at any moment.
