Stays must be booked by the upcoming Sunday.  The rates are prepaid however depending on the location they may be cancelled for a full refund.

Air Canada adds Toronto to Yellowknife service

Air Canada has announced a new direct non-stop Toronto to Yellowknife flight that will launch on December 1. The flights will operate 3x weekly with an Airbus A220-300. A quick cursory search shows good Aeroplan availability on the route with flight although with quite high points requirements right now (as are the cash prices). I feel that is due to the route being so new – once they are out of early adopter stage for bookings we should hopefully see the numbers come down as this route will make for a great redemption to go see the Northern Lights next winter!
