Calgary to Beijing, China - $585 CAD roundtrip incl taxes | Shanghai for $655, Manila for $526 & 33 other destinations on sale
Flight Centre is claiming to have a sale on flights from Calgary to various cities around the world.
99% of the time, the 'sales' announced by booking sites and travel agencies are nothing more than marketing noise and not genuine sales, but in this case Flight Centre is indeed offering international flights for $100 CAD less than the cheapest prices currently available anywhere else.
On some routes that are already historically really low at the moment, this does make for pretty awesome prices.
I'll list the destinations below that I feel are the best deals. There are a few others available on the Flight Centre offer page.
