Calgary to Osaka, Japan - $722 roundtrip including taxes | 26 minute, $8 train ride to Kyoto

Osaka, Japan

Air Canada is having an unadvertised sale on some flights from Calgary to Osaka, Japan (KIX) for $722 CAD roundtrip including taxes. This is a good 30% below the typical best roundtrip prices to Japan these days.

Available dates

It looks to be sporadic dates in May, June and in late August to mid October that have dropped.

From Osaka, it's a 26 minute train ride ($8) to the beautiful city of Kyoto if you use the special rapid trains on the JR Kyoto Line.

NOTE: The Vancouver - Osaka portion is operated by Air Canada Rouge. The typical warning about Rouge applies as always (no seat back entertainment, smaller seats) but the Rouge flights from Vancouver to Japan are apparently better than they are to other Rouge destinations.

Here's what someone who has flown Rouge on this route has to say:

"Just a note flying Rouge isn't so bad if flying in the 767. It's very comparable and the seats are a slightly wider than that of the new Air Canada 787s that fly to Tokyo.
767 - 30 pitch / 17.5 width.
787 - 31 pitch / 17.3 width."

Update 3 - More madness to Osaka!

It now looks like there are flights from Calgary to Osaka's ITM airport for a similar price, BUT using Japan Airlines! (Japan Airlines is a very good airline).

The Calgary - Vancouver segments are operated by either WestJet or Air Canada. The Vancouver - Tokyo and Tokyo - Osaka segments are operated by Japan Airlines.
