This week, Canada’s low-cost airlines are competing head-to-head to offer the lowest fares from the Lower Mainland to Mexico. Another low-cost airline is running a sizable campaign for people living in the Great White North who want to escape the cold, just as WestJet’s bargain airline, Swoop, just ended a Canada-wide sale on all of its flights to the United States or any of its overseas destinations.
All of Flair Airlines’ flights to Mexico, including those departing directly from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) for well-known locations like Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, are currently on sale as part of the airline’s “non-stop fiesta” promotion.
The promotion is applicable for travel between March 1 and June 15 and runs from February 22 to February 24. After checking out, use the promotion code “mexico35” to receive 35% off base airfare for flights.
Cancun-bound travellers can also benefit from the discount, but they will need to book a ticket to Toronto or another eastern Canadian city for a layover.

All taxes and fees are included in the price of one-way flights from Vancouver to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, which start at just $149.
Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta are not in any of the six Mexican states where travellers are advised to absolutely avoid visiting owing to rising violent crime and kidnapping.
Although the Canadian government has not issued a “do not travel” advisory, it does suggest that visitors avoid “any non-essential travel” to 13 regions because of organised crime and violence.
