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

Crazy day! Cheap flights to Maui, San Francisco, Chicago, New York

Maui, Hawaii

I'm not exactly sure what's going on today, but WestJet and Air Canada seem to be doing some major spring clearance, with some very unusual airfare price drops from Calgary to Maui, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.

Here's a brief rundown of what I've seen so far, in order of excitement:

Calgary to Maui, Hawaii (OGG) - $398 roundtrip including taxes on Air Canada

Dates: Looks to be available on certain date combinations up to about the second week of May.

How to find them...

Google Flights Explorer - https://www.google.ca/flights/explore/#explore;f=YYC;t=OGG;li=3;lx=7

Kayak example search - http://www.ca.kayak.com/flights/YYC-OGG/2014-04-07-flexible/2014-04-14-flexible

And it's not just the price drop that's exciting here, it looks like certain date combinations are available at this price using non-stop (aka 'direct') flights from Calgary to Maui, which is *extremely* unusual to see. When using Google Flights Explorer, try selecting 'non-stop' from the 'Stops' pulldown menu to see which date combos have the non-stop flights.

Update 1: Due to the popularity of this deal, it seems like it is now difficult to find non-stops between Calgary and Maui in both directions. You can try this search, which is currently showing some cheap ones that are non-stop on the way there, and 1 stop on the way back.

If anyone sees any more cheap ones that are non-stop in both directions, please comment below with the dates you used.

Calgary to New York (LGA) - $335 roundtrip including taxes on Air Canada

Dates: Looks to be available on certain date combinations up to about the second week of May.

How to find them...

Google Flights Explorer - https://www.google.ca/flights/explore/#explore;f=YYC;t=JFK,EWR,LGA;li=3;lx=5;d=2014-03-12

Kayak example search - http://www.ca.kayak.com/flights/YYC-NYC/2014-04-07-flexible/2014-04-14-flexible

Calgary to Chicago (ORD) - $271 roundtrip including taxes on WestJet

Dates: Looks to be available on certain date combinations up to about the second week of May.

How to find them...

Google Flights Explorer - https://www.google.ca/flights/explore/#explore;f=YYC;t=ORD,MDW;li=3;lx=5

Click through from Google Flights Explorer to WestJet.com to book them. So far they seem to be showing higher on Kayak.

The Calgary to Chicago flights are non-stop, and I believe set a new record for the cheapest flights ever seen to the windy city from YYC.

Calgary to San Francisco (SFO) - $271 roundtrip including taxes on WestJet

Dates: Looks to be available on certain date combinations up to about the second week of May.

How to find them...

Google Flights Explorer - https://www.google.ca/flights/explore/#explore;f=YYC;t=SFO;li=3;lx=5

Kayak - http://www.ca.kayak.com/flights/YYC-SFO/2014-04-29-flexible/2014-05-02-flexible

Click through from Google Flights Explorer to WestJet.com to book them. So far they seem to be showing higher on Kayak.

It's not unusual to see Calgary to San Francisco in the $300s roundtrip, as it's typically one of the cheapest places you can fly to from YYC. Still, it's been a long time since I've seen it drop this low.

Calgary to Palm Springs, California (PSP) - $271 roundtrip including taxes on WestJet

Dates: Looks to be available on certain date combinations up to about the second week of May.

How to find them...

Google Flights Explorer - https://www.google.ca/flights/explore/#explore;f=YYC;t=PSP;li=3;lx=5

Kayak - http://www.ca.kayak.com/flights/YYC-PSP/2014-04-29-flexible/2014-05-02-flexible

Click through from Google Flights Explorer to WestJet.com to book them. So far they seem to be showing higher on Kayak. Finding availability seems to be a little tougher for this one.

Calgary to Palm Springs typically bottoms out in the mid $300s to $400s roundtrip. I don't know if I've ever seen it drop into the $200s like this. If I have, it was a very long time ago.

Any others?

This is what I've seen so far. There may be other destinations that have dropped. If you've seen any, please comment below. I will update this post with any new findings.

As far as I know, this is not a part of any advertised sale, even though WestJet has an advertised 'spring sale' going on at the moment, it doesn't appear to include the destinations above. So these fares could disappear at any time.
