United – $321: New York – Calgary, Canada. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

This is for PEAK JULY travel! Go explore the Canadian Rockies. Calgary is a great springboard to Banff and Lake Louise!

Canada is actually very expensive to fly to due to high taxes – the base fare (or what United actually takes in) is $213. The rest is taxes! For those who want 100% United mileage, please select an itinerary that is fully operated by United. United and Air Canada codeshare this route so any flight operated by Air Canada will only earn 25% mileage with United.

Any flight number that is 8xxx will be an Air Canada operated flight. Avoid those! If you don’t care about miles, then it doesn’t matter. But you should, since you can earn over 6,000+ miles on this trip!
