Halifax to Ottawa or Montreal - $96 to $192 CAD roundtrip [nonstop flights]

Montreal

Most of the great July and August prices for domestic travel within Canada are now gone. (Update: August dates are available from Halifax to Montreal for $88 CAD roundtrip.)

The focus now is on September and beyond, where the intense competition between 3 of Canada's airlines is still resulting in some very cheap prices in September and October.

Sadly, September or October is usually the last chance of the year for a vacation within Canada with decent weather.

WestJet, Air Canada vs Flair, Swoop

When it comes to comparing prices between WestJet / Air Canada versus Flair / Swoop, if you have intention of bringing *any* luggage (checked OR carry-on), you should probably add about $100-$120 to Flair and Swoop's roundtrip prices, to give you a fair comparison.

Flair and Swoop's base prices will buy you just a seat on the plane, so don't be fooled by the first price you see on search engines. They're not telling you the whole story.

As a general rule, somewhere around $200 CAD roundtrip including taxes and fees has been the rock bottom price you'll find for non-stop flights between Nova Scotia and Ontario/Quebec with WestJet or Air Canada.

And with Flair or Swoop, the bottom price will be around $100-$125 CAD roundtrip *before* adding any luggage, and not by coincidence, also around $200-$225 CAD roundtrip with checked luggage or carry-on.

So at the end of the day, if your grand total price is in the ballpark of $200 CAD roundtrip per passenger for a flight from Halifax to Ontario or Quebec, you're doing very well. It's a lot better than the $400-$600 roundtrip that Canadians have traditionally paid for travel within our own country over the years.

Are there any requirements such as a negative covid test result for flying within Canada?

There are no special requirements, such as having a covid test result, when flying to Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, or Quebec.

Vice versa flights also work

Similar roundtrip prices can be found on the reverse routes (Montreal to Halifax for example).

A rare event, good deals within Canada thanks to a perfect storm on Westjet

Prices within Canada are stupid. Everybody knows that. Westjet and Air Canada jack up the prices and then offer promo codes to try and convince people there are deals to be had, but the price hasn't actually budged.
