How to Fly from Canada to Israel for $73.53

Would you like to know how to fly from Canada to Israel for $73.53?

Hello everyone, I just booked my flight for my upcoming one year trip around the world. I will be leaving on September 13, 2016. My first destination is Israel. Karen and my sisters also booked the same flight for the same price.

Here’s how we did it:

Step 1: Book a One Way Flight from a Canadian City to Tel Aviv, Israel


I picked September 13 as my departure date and checked the box that says “My dates are flexible.” This way, in case I cannot find the right flight for the right price, I can check the other dates to see if they have a better deal. I picked Vancouver since that’s where I reside but it also works on other parts of Canada.

Step 2: Select a Star Alliance Carrier that Does Not Charge a Carrier Fee and You’re Done!


Hey wait a minute! Doesn’t Air Canada have a carrier surcharge???

Yes it does and I’m glad you caught that! I may have found a glitch that allows you to book using Air Canada and avoid/minimize the carrier surcharge.

When you typically book with an Air Canada carrier, your flight to Israel or anywhere else for that matter would look like this:


As you can see, the cost is almost $300 more than what I paid if I selected the option with two Air Canada carrier.

Okay, what gives? How did you get away with paying less carrier fee?

 As you know, there are certain carriers that doesn’t have a carrier fee. Here is a list of them:

  • Air China
  • Brussels Airlines
  • Egypt Air
  • EVA Airways
  • Scandinavian
  • Singapore Airlines
  • Swiss
  • Turkish Airlines
  • United Airlines

For some weird reason, sometimes, when you pair an Air Canada flight with an airline that doesn’t have a carrier fee, the system will glitch and you won’t be charged the expensive fee. In my case, I paired up Air Canada with Turkish Airlines and my fee was significantly reduced and I was able to book my flight for such a much cheaper amount.


What you’re doing is sorcery, there’s no way I can emulate that. Aha! I found the catch, you need 40,000 Aeroplan miles. Well that will take me forever to spend $40,000 to get that deal. Nice try buddy.

That’s awesome you noticed that. Yes, you are right that if you go the old fashion route, you will need to spend $40,000 to earn 40,000 miles.

    1. Hi Constance,

      I actually didn’t use any specific website to book my flight. I used points I accumulated from Aeroplan to book this cheap flight.
