I just saw this incredible flight deal posted over at our friends Chris Myden’s site YYC Deals.
There’s a huge fare war to Amsterdam (AMS) going on at the moment. You do see the occasional charter flight on Air Transat to Amsterdam that drops down to this level, but it’s extremely rare to see nearly all the major airlines drop a price to Europe like this that affects such a large range of dates.
They look to have dropped the price of most flights that occur between now and mid-May 2012.
Here’s how to find them…
1. Go to http://www.kayak.com
2. Do a 3 day flexible date search for a roundtrip flight from Calgary to Amsterdam that occurs between now and May 15, 2012.
3. The airlines involved in this fare war appear to be Air Canada, United/Continental, Lufthansa, American Airlines, and possibly others. Some of the flights have good routings, some don’t.
What you want to do after your search on Kayak is click on the dropdown menu beside ‘Sort’ and choose ‘Duration (short to long)’.
Next, you’ll want to use the price slider on the left hand side and bring it down to $650 or so. Now you’re looking at the fastest flights that are under $650 roundtrip after taxes.
Here’s an example search in May 2012 to get you started:
Of course you can also use this as a ‘gateway’ flight to get somewhere else cheaply in Europe. Plenty of low-cost carriers have flights from Amsterdam.
