Today Delta is showing a large number of interesting price drops from Victoria, BC to a variety of destinations in the U.S. In many cases, they are actually cheaper than from YVR, which is rare.
Being a smaller airport, YYJ doesn't see great deals nearly as often as YVR. It's nice to see Vancouver Island get a little love!
Availability for travel
April, May, and sometimes up to mid-June 2016 (depending on the destination)
