I'm looking at flights form Oct 18 - 31st as I need t go to St Stephen, NB, Canada. The flights to St John are ridiculous (£600+), Bangor is ok, (£400). Anywhere else I could fly too, any tips for getting there cheaper. I thought about flying to Boston and driving perhaps? Any help would be appreciated.

Air Transat announced a weekly charter flight LGW-YHX-YFC through the end of summer 2008, but the last flight is listed as October 28th.

The days of really cheap airfares are over.

The prices you mentioned do not seem out of line to me.

Possibly Moncton or Fredericton NB
If you dont mind a drive you could possibly fly too Charlottetown PEI or Halifax NS.

Try those places out.

Continental seem to be pretty reasonable, as do Delta. I was just wondering if there were any routes where I could save a few pennies. Hey, I'm Scottish, we're frugal  Wink

If' you've checked CO and DL I assume you've also checked AC - either as far as YHZ or as a connection to YSJ. It's about a 4 hour drive from Halifax to Saint John, I think. There is bus service from Halifax airport to Saint John for about $63 one way through


According to YSJ website only Westjet, Air Canada and Sunwing fly to Saint John.


Good luck.

Thanks for the tips. It seems BGR is the cheapest option so far. I'l keep looking.

I am from Saint John originally and Saint Johners often make the three hour drive down to Bangor, Maine to fly as the savings are usually huge. Even if you do factor in an overnight stay in Bangor.

I know Thomas Cook has a weekly flight from London Gatwick to Halifax as does Zoom so you might want to look into those as well. Flying directly in to Saint John, Moncton or Fredericton you can pretty much count on paying significantly MORE for your ticket.

People often complain about pricing for flights in Canada (Australia has a similar problem).
Simply put: small population, vast areas to fly. You simply cannot compare pricing when looking at the short distances between COUNTRIES in Europe, and the distances between CITIES in Canada (also factor in demand for the flight). If you want to get a better idea of distances between major cities in Canada...superimpose a scale map of Europe on top of Canada...it's quite surprising.

A combination of flying into a major centre (<--- correct Canadian spelling), in this case it looks like something in the US, and then travelling by bus is an amazing way to enjoy the amazing scenery that is the maritime provinces, and eastern seaboard of the USA.

I usually drive from Ontario to the Maritimes every summer, but we are flying with WS this year cause we have a 1 year old (20+ hour drive just dosent work). Fly into Bangor and enjoy the drive. Definatly one of the nicer regions in Canada.
