Yes it is for the round trip from Toronto to Aruba. The taxes can run equal to the fare. I know you can stay 2 weeks and I believe 3 is also possible from what I see on the website for booking. They are only operating on Sunday and I am not sure for how long this will be offered.
Hey Aquaman - GREAT news for us near Toronto. I met with Andrea and her DH while in Aruba this past trip . . . where do you hail from? We live in Mississauga and always make the trek to Buffalo for our travel to the island (6-7X per year). In fact, I sent WestJet an email earlier this week pleading with them to open the Toronto-Aruba corridor . . .
Many thanks for the update - we still need to book our Dec/Jan trip . . . our Oct trip is already booked via jetBlue.
If this holds up, it could be very good news for some of us.
And I'm sorry to emphasize the if. After all, it is the Canadian government and it's propensity to tax just about everything that makes it so, shall I say, restrictive (?) to fly. Good news comes in wonderful places, such as the Aruba board.
Thanks for this folks...
Just to let you know that I flew down to Aruba on this deal July10 and returned Jul 17th. At that time the fare I paid was $172. I should caution that these fares fluctuate on an almost daily basis. Originally it was $449 and then dropped to $299 then to $172. Need to have time on your side and monitor the fares.
For some reason, last year West Jet was flying into Aruba from TO but only during the off season. Perhaps this is the same thing?? I think I read something in the Aruba paper last year that Westjet was being allowed to fly in during the whole year but when I got home I called and they had no idea about it.
Apparently, Thomas Cook travel has flights from TO now.
