Canada insider flight tips
- The cheapest route between Australia and Canada is Sydney to Vancouver on the west coast. Air Canada flies direct between Sydney and Brisbane and Vancouver on a daily basis and the service also connects directly to Toronto. All you have to do is get off the plane to clear customs and get on again. Cheaper fares are available one-stop with a few of the Asian airlines transiting in Asia, or with Air New Zealand via Auckland or United Airlines via Los Angeles International airport (LAX) or San Francisco. You can fly out on these routes from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide or Cairns. Most flights to Toronto generally change at LAX, Vancouver or in Asia.
- To reach Montreal you’ll need to change twice: United Airlines offers the lowest fares via LAX and Chicago’s O’hare International airport (ORD). Delta also flies via LA and New York,, or Air Canada flies one-stop via Vancouver. Transiting in the USA means clearing customs and baggage and you’ll also need a valid visa or visa waiver – staying the night might help get over jet lag faster.
- Another option if you have the time is to fly direct to Vancouver and take the scenic route to another city on Canada’s world class rail network.
