Save 20% on all Air Canada flights within Canada when you book by June 16 - good for travel until May 15, 2021!


Air Canada, Avis and Fairmont Hotels launched a combined promotion today called Explore Canada. All three travel providers have offers as part of the promotion:



Earlier today we brought you details of Fairmont's 2nd Night offer (as it is essentially an extension o of the Stay Close offer we have seen since May) and now we wanted to highlight Air Canada's offer.

The airline is offering 20% off all Air Canada Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class base fares for flights within Canada. You simply have to book by June 16, 2020 for travel between June 15, 2020 and May 15, 2021. There do not appear to be any blackout dates however seats can be limited and subject to availability. To take advantage of the offer simply use promo code HX66NYU1 when you booking your flight online at aircanada.com.

Here are some examples of pricing for flights between Calgary and Toronto in July - on an internationally configured Boeing 787-8 no less. Economy class as low as $198 each way, lie flat business class from $1055.  Other business class fares on Airbus A220 and A320 flights are pricing out just above $700 each way.


If you have the Platinum Card from American Express we recommend using it to pay for these flights (and basically everything and anything else) thanks to its Double Points promotion. As the card typically earns 2 Membership Rewards points per dollar on travel these purchases will earn 4 points per dollar right now. Those points can be converted to Aeroplan on a 1:1 basis which means you'd be earning 4 Aeroplan Miles per dollar spent on Air Canada flights! No other card even comes close to that!
