I'm trying to book a flight to Toronto in February from the UK (LON or MAN
) and was amazed at how expensive it is compared with flights to US cities.
Given that Feb is a slack time of year I was expecting some good deals but the best I could find was £320 with United, while direct Air Canada wanted £360 of my money. I could actually fly with AC
to washington via Toronto for £330 so I'm a bit confused!
Anyway, my question is why is it so expensive to fly to Toronto when I can fly to the likes of Washington, New York, Chicago and Boston (all similar distances) for around £200? Is it something to do with higher airport charges in Canada or some other reason?
