"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YEG." - Chris Myden

Edmonton to Paris, France - $286 CAD roundtrip including taxes! (And Amsterdam for $326 CAD roundtrip!)

Paris, France

British Airways has dropped the price of their flights from Edmonton to Paris, France down to $286 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

I've been seeing incredibly low prices from Western Canada to various cities in Europe on British Airways all morning.

At first I thought they were an error, as they were only showing up on CheapOAir but I've started receiving reports from people that they have received their ticket numbers and can check their bookings on the British Airways website.

There hasn't been as many great price drops from Edmonton to Europe, but this one stood out.

UPDATE: I am also seeing flights from Edmonton to Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS) for $326 CAD roundtrip!

Availability for travel

September, October, November, first half of December 2017

January, February, March, April, May 2018

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to the CheapOAir website

IMPORTANT: This is the CheapOAir.com website, which is in $USD. The $CAD version of the CheapOAir website (.ca) is no longer showing these.

2. Search for a flight from Vancouver to Paris, France (CDG) or Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS) or try one of the other European cities listed below.

3. Try Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday dates in the months listed above.

You can also try the Google Flights strategy at the bottom of this blog post.

From Western Canada, I've also been seeing prices in the $500s and $600s CAD roundtrip to...

Dublin, Ireland (DUB)
London, UK (LHR)
Madrid, Spain (MAD)
Paris, France (CDG)
Rome, Italy (FCO)
Bucharest, Romania (OTP)
Vienna, Austria (VIE)
Sofia, Bulgaria (SOF)
Prague, Czech Republic (PRG)
Budapest, Hungary (BUD)
Zagreb, Croatia (ZAG)
Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)

I will update this post if I see any more unusually cheap ones to these cities from Edmonton.

Here's a tip to help find the dates that may be showing an unusually low price...

1. Go to Google Flights: (British Airways only)

2. Change the destination to one of the ones listed in this blog post.

3. Click on the departure date box to open the calendar view and browse for the cheapest dates you can find. They may be over $1000. That's ok.

4. Try those dates on CheapOAir

NOTE: For anyone finding that the CheapOAir (dot ca) website is extremely slow right now, try accessing it from a mobile device. The mobile site seems to still be fairly fast.

UPDATE: I haven't seen any on Cheapoair.ca for a while, but these may still be available on the Cheapoair (dot COM) website.

The CheapOAir.com website is in $USD.

I just saw Edmonton to Paris for $260 USD which would work out to $335 CAD.

^^ This was March 13 to March 20. But keep trying different dates, it's not over yet!

Multiply what you see on the .com website by 1.29

On CheapoAir.com (the $USD site) - you can also try using promo code AIR50 to bring down the price a little more

It's a little hard to find the spot where you enter the promo code.

It's on the payment page, under 'Price Details' (USD).

Click on 'Promo Code'

Enter: AIR50

    Sadly the cheapest fares I'm finding are not even close to those you've referenced, Chris; Icelandair is the cheapest for the dates you've selected in your screen shot (March 8 - 22), and are still $643.

    I agree with Alastair, I'm not finding anything close to what you noted in the post.

    It does seem that there are still some dates showing the referenced fares on their mobile site so definitely try that!

    UPDATE: I am still seeing these on the Cheapoair.COM website (not .ca). The .COM website is in $USD.

    Just saw Edmonton to Paris for $266 USD which would work out to $341 CAD. Mar 14 to Mar 21 were the dates I tried.

    Has Julie been here?
       Julie on August 10th, 2017

    Edmonton to Paris on those dates (Mar 14 - 21) is now CAD 634. :(

    Can't help but wonder: how come there are always only 2 tickets left on Cheapoair regardless of dates or destination?

    Has Chris Myden been here?
       Chris Myden on August 10th, 2017

    Yes, keep in mind the dates I post will be what people try first, and the first to go.

    This is just an example though, indicating these prices are likely available on many other dates.

    I'll explain the inventory thing later! Not a whole lot of time today unfortunately!

    Has Justin been here?
       Justin on August 10th, 2017

    Thanks so much Chris!

    Just used the cheapoair.com website and booked a trip to Amsterdam!

    Apr 1 to Apr 12 -->809.78 CAD all in for 2 adult passengers.

    that includes the additional 20.00 travel protection for each passenger.

    I searched promo codes too and found a working code for 50.00off (us funds) code is "Air50"

       Chris Myden on August 10th, 2017
