Flights Fairbanks To Vancouver – The joy of retirement is being able to embrace what you enjoy. A few weeks ago, when I was having my last good time in Dawson, Kathy got me a new job. A friend he works with helped transport the rest of the stuff from Vancouver to Whitehorse. Fly into Vancouver, pick up your U-Haul, meet up with friends, load up your truck and drive home, easy right?
I left at 4am this morning to head to the Whitehorse airport to catch my 5:50 Air Canada flight to Vancouver. It was cloudy the whole way, but we were able to see parts of the Coast Range for a few minutes before sunrise.

The cloud layers were very close to the ground in Vancouver – it was 5C and humid so I didn’t feel like staying for a while 🙂

For such a large airport, YVR always impresses with its ease of use and excellent architecture.
The U-Haul pickup was miles from the storage facility, but at least it was fairly close to the railroad tracks. The first train I took was the Canada Line from the airport to the Vancouver waterfront. It was quick and easy.
It took me longer than it should have to find the next train as the signage was poor, but soon I got on the Millennium Line and reached the New Westminster end. It’s a very scenic line in places.
The U-Haul location was said to be within walking distance of the train station. It was a lot farther than I expected, and there was a lot of traffic—cars, trucks, and trains—so I took it very slowly.
Travelog Is Off The Ground
However, we were ready to leave at 10:30, only half an hour later than planned. The truck was dirty inside and out and smelled bad, but it was fine.
The three of us met at a large storage area, and by 1:00 we were loading our trucks and heading north.
After stopping in Chilliwack for an early dinner and some roadside shopping, we arrived in Hope shortly after 4:30. Vancouver traffic can drive you crazy, but life in Chilliwack is fun even when it rains 🙂
I made a quick stop at the Sailor Bar Tunnel for my next article on the Fraser Canyon Tunnels.

We needed to stretch our legs before we got to Spuzzum, and walking halfway over the bridge over the Fraser River was a wonderful place to do it.
And it’s been years since I’ve had a photo of the new bridge on the much neglected Alexandra Bridge.
My original plan was to go to Quesnel tonight, but I loved the Roundup Motel in Clinton. In my experience, this is the best $69 motel in BC.
I want to go to Fort Nelson tomorrow but I’m going to see some people in Peace Country so we’ll see how that goes 🙂 Seattle Tacoma International Airport Travelers Check Flight Status Friday April 1, 2022 Canceled at the Seattle Terminal door display. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
Cheap Flights From Pittsburgh To Fairbanks From $239
Well, pretty much everything, according to some analysts. Jet fuel costs and stagnant travel demand are two key factors putting upward pressure on fares.
“Demand combined with higher jet fuel prices is driving up domestic airfares,” said Haley Berg, an economist at travel site Hopper.
Average U.S. fares rose 5.2 percent last month, according to Scott Keyes of the fare-tracking website Scott’s Cheap Flights.
But just like politics, all plane tickets are local. Sure, most prices have gone up, but for Alaska travelers, they’re still well below peak season prices.
Klm Resumes Flights From Kuala Lumpur And Jakarta
For example, a trip to Europe this spring is still a bargain. To get the best rates available, you should travel between late April and mid to late May.
Earlier this year, round-trip fares to Europe were in the $400-$500 range. But you had to travel at the end of April.
This new discount is available for travel until May 29. Here are some of my favorites:
United $682 round trip from Anchorage to Rome. Travel until May 25. Prices increase during the summer to $1,000-$1,300 round trip. These are “basic economy” fares, so checked baggage and pre-booked seats will incur additional charges.
Travelers Want To Visit Alaska This Summer — And Airlines Are Responding With A Full Slate Of Flights
Anchorage to Madrid is $674 round trip with Delta Air Lines. The travel period is until May 27. During the summer months, the round trip costs between $1,000 and $1,200.
If you want to fly to Africa, check out Delta’s $844 round-trip fare from Anchorage to Nairobi and our partners KLM and Air France. We recommend traveling between April 17 and May 15 before prices start to rise. However, prices drop again from September to December. These months are much better if you want to see wildlife. Of course, the creatures are there all year round, but in the fall there is much less rain.
Domestic rates are also skyrocketing. However, fierce competition among airlines keeps these fares low.
For example, fares between Anchorage and Seattle are increasing. But only a little. Now, from April 28 to May 29, you can fly between Anchorage and Seattle for $200 round trip. Summer fares range from $264 to $550 round trip on both Delta and Alaska.
Cheap Flights From Boston To Alaska From $214
Alaska Airlines Anchorage to Portland nonstop tickets are available from April 29 to May 13 round trip starting at $200. However, these rates are subject to change and are constantly changing.
If you’re lucky, it’s easy to find great deals in Las Vegas, especially on nonstop flights on Alaska Airlines — starting at $278 round-trip for travel through May 28. $300 to $408 round trip.
Whether you’re going to San Francisco or Los Angeles, fares are cheaper this spring. Alaska Airlines nonstop flights from Anchorage to Los Angeles from April 29 to May 24 are $159 one-way and $320-$330 round-trip. Flight from April 29 to May 24. Summer rates from Anchorage to San Francisco range from $447 to $551 round trip.
Alaska Airlines offers daily nonstop flights from Anchorage to Honolulu during the summer. Spring fares from April 26 to May 25 range from $376 to $576 round trip. Summer fares range from $447 to $577 round trip. Flights to Kona, Maui and Kauai must cross the West Coast or change planes in Honolulu. Direct flights to Kona and Maui will resume in the fall.
Hawaii & Alaska Teen Tour
You can get cheap flights to Florida or New York, but only for a few days. And return tickets are much more expensive. For example, on select dates, May 9-17, fly from Anchorage to New York’s LaGuardia Airport for $111 one-way. I’m flying Delta from Anchorage to Tampa on May 8th or 14th for $129 each way.
Direct flights from Fairbanks to Seattle are still cheap. $200 round trip on Alaska or Delta between April 28th and May 12th. Summer fares range from $280 to $360 round trip.
If you’re traveling to Seattle from Juneau, Sitka or Ketchikan, the price will drop on June 7 from $300-$330 round trip to $200 round trip. That’s when Delta will resume seasonal nonstop flights.
Because of the disconnected elements of the ticket, there are more ways to spend money and the cost of the ticket is higher.
Seattle, Alaska Cruise, Denali & Fairbanks By Rail
For example, would you take a $66 one-way ticket from Anchorage to Vancouver, BC on Flair Airlines this summer? You will most likely buy one of the airline’s “packages”, which includes carry-on and possibly checked baggage. If you need a pre-assigned seat, you will have to pay an additional fee.
Most of the prices above are “Basic Economy” or “Save” fares. It costs about $150 round trip to fly from Anchorage to Europe to get a pre-assigned seat and a checked bag.
Another price drop: Alaska Airlines slashes Gogo in-flight internet prices. The new price is $8 per flight, and many of Alaska’s planes are equipped with new satellite-based Internet services that offer faster speeds.
So while increased jet fuel and demand drive prices up, intense competition keeps rates low.
