Ottawa to Dublin, Ireland - $350 CAD roundtrip including taxes with British Airways | Paris, France for $339

Dublin, Ireland

British Airways has dropped the price of their flights from Ottawa to Dublin, Ireland down to $350 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

I've been seeing incredibly low prices from Western Canada to various cities in Europe on British Airways all morning.

At first I thought they were an error, as they were only showing up on CheapOAir but I've started receiving reports from people that they have received their ticket numbers and can check their bookings on the British Airways website.

There hasn't been as many great price drops from Eastern Canada (except Montreal to Greece) but this one from Ottawa to Dublin definitely stood out.

UPDATE: I am now seeing flights from Ottawa to Paris, France for $339 CAD roundtrip!

Availability for travel

November 2017 (checked)
September, October, first half of December 2017 (may also be available, have seen them from other cities)
January, February, March, April, May 2018 (may also be available, have seen them from other cities)

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to the CheapOAir website

NOTE: For anyone finding that the CheapOAir (dot ca) website is extremely slow right now, try accessing it from a mobile device. The mobile site seems to still be fairly fast.

2. Search for a flight from Ottawa to...

Dublin, Ireland (DUB)
Paris, France (CDG)
Lisbon, Portugal (LIS)

Try Wednesday to Wednesday dates in November 2017.

You can also try Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu dates in the other months listed above.

You can also try the Google Flights strategy at the bottom of this blog post.

From Western Canada, I've also seen unusually low prices to...

Madrid, Spain (MAD)
London, UK (LHR)
Paris, France (CDG)
Rome, Italy (FCO)
Bucharest, Romania (OTP)
Vienna, Austria (VIE)
Zagreb, Croatia (ZAG)
Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)

I will update this post if I see any unusually cheap ones to these cities from Ottawa.

Update: I have seen flights from Ottawa to Lisbon, Portugal for $433 CAD roundtrip including taxes (2 stops each way)

To find the dates that are cheap, you can try the Google Flights strategy below...

Here's a tip to help find the dates that may be showing an unusually low price...

1. Go to Google Flights: (British Airways only)

You'll notice the departure city is Toronto, not Ottawa. That's ok, we're just looking for the possible cheap date combinations, and it's easier to find them using Toronto as your departure city.

2. Change the destination to one of the ones listed in this blog post.

3. Click on the departure date box to open the calendar view and browse for the cheapest dates you can find.

4. Try those dates on CheapOAir

NOTE: For anyone finding that the CheapOAir (dot ca) website is extremely slow right now, try accessing it from a mobile device. The mobile site seems to still be fairly fast.

UPDATE: I haven't seen any on Cheapoair.ca for a while, but these may still be available on the Cheapoair (dot COM) website.

The CheapOAir.com website is in $USD.

I just saw Ottawa - Paris for $285 USD, which works out to $367 CAD.

^^ This was April 9 to Apr 16. But keep trying different dates, it's not over yet!

Multiply what you see on the .com website by 1.29

On CheapoAir.com (the $USD site) - you can also try using promo code AIR50 to bring down the price a little more

It's a little hard to find the spot where you enter the promo code.

It's on the payment page, under 'Price Details' (USD).

Click on 'Promo Code'

Enter: AIR50
