Interested in a trip to Tokyo this autumn or next year? If so and you’re in the Eastern USA, Air Canada has a great deal for you. Cheap tickets on Air Canada to Tokyo are available now.
Cheap Air Canada Tickets To Tokyo
We are seeing round-trip fares to Tokyo for as little as $160. Discount fares are available from these U.S. cities:
- Pittsburgh (PIT) – $160-$190 r/t
- Raleigh-Durham (RDU) – $204-$246 r/t
- Cleveland (CLE) – $252-$290 r/t
- Fort Lauderdale (FLL) – $290-$293 r/t
- Cincinnati (CVG) – $297 r/t
You can book your tickets on Priceline.com.
Prices are not as cheap from the West Coast, through I see prices as low as $412 r/t from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Portland, and San Francisco which is not too bad (far better than buying a positioning flight to PIT).
SecretFlying calls it an error fare, but I’m not so sure. In the twilight zone in which we live, who knows anymore. Honestly, this is not so out-of-the-ordinary that I would call it a definite error.
I pass it on to you with the warning that if an error fare, Air Canada likely won’t honor it (unless you push hard…which probably isn’t worth it for a transpacific economy class ticket).
With total sincerity, I think we will see deals like this going forward in an attempt to get airplanes full and people excited about actually traveling again. This may well be a mistake fare, but it could also just be a very attractive sale.
Keep in mind travel restrictions will still likely be in place this autumn and next winter and spring remains anyone’s guess.
Will you be booking an Air Canada economy class ticket to Tokyo?

nothing from the left coast?
And here we go, another mistake fare drama about to unfold.
I’ll be on the sidelines!
The very fact of the markets chosen points to a mistake fare. I highly doubt they are looking to fill flights to Japan from markets like Cleveland and Pittsburgh by touting giveaway fares that are many months away. If so, the genius at Air Canada that came up with this idea might want to consider his calling in life.
Look at the screenshot example, if one doesn’t mind an average 20-hours layover in YUL each way…
Does anyone seriously believe Americans will be able to travel to Japan this autumn? If even Kiwis and Italians and Icelandic people can’t travel to Japan right now, why would Americans be able to travel there in October? Serious question, Matthew — I’m curious about your thoughts. Do you think Japan and the EU will finally just decide it’s time to get rid of the travel bans this fall and move forward? Like, it’s crazy to me that Delta is restoring an Atlanta to Tokyo flight in October — who will be on the plane?!
@james this sale is valid till April.
@profan, yeah, I know, but why are airlines even selling tickets for the fall to Tokyo? Strikes me as unethical.
If they are flying planes, they might as well sell tickets. Why are they flying planes? Who knows, maybe government subsidies / requirements, or cargo. Not sure if Canadians will be able to go to Japan soon and if they are, but there are not enough of them to fill the planes, Air Canada might as well offer the remaining seats to US markets at deep discounts. Also some of these people might be going to Japan in transit to other destinations which might be open. Even going to for example Guam wouldn’t be so terrible from let’s say RDU.
It’s a mistake fare. Trust me, Air Canada did not tap into a hidden market in Pittsburgh and Cleveland where tens of thousands want to jump on fares that are basically paying people to fly. They would have as much luck with Sault Ste. Marie. Or Gander. The only thing not setting this on fire in the blogging world is that it’s in economy.
Hmm, sounds more like a move to trick more people into lending them money temporarily. With their refund fiasco, I wouldn’t be surprise if they don’t honor the fares and keep your money in lieu of a AC voucher. Buyer beware.
