Montreal to Greece, Malta, Czech Republic, Hungary and other European destinations - $579 to $599 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines is significant showing price reductions on their fares from Montreal to a fairly large number of destinations in Europe.

Turkish Airlines is a highly rated airline. (Ranked #4 worldwide in 2015 by SkyTrax).

The flights to Malta & Greece are perhaps the most notable, as they are quite far south, and the climate is warmer in the off-season months of April/May than other places in Europe.

Catania, Italy is also pretty far south, with a Mediterranean climate.

Availability for travel

Certain dates between late March and May 2016.

1. Go to FlightHub.com and search for a flight from Montreal to one of the destinations above.

You may also want to try a 3 day flexible date search on Kayak, and click through from Kayak to the Turkish Airlines website - although it seems like the price shown on Kayak may jump up once you get to TurkishAirlines.com, from what I've seen so far.

Dealing with a long stopover, either on the way there, or back - Turkish Airlines offers free hotel rooms or tours of Istanbul!

Some of these flights may have a long stop in Istanbul, either on the way there, or back.

You can try picking a flight option with a really long stop (24 hours) - to give yourself a full day to explore Istanbul, if it exists.

Turkish Airlines actually offers a free hotel stay, *IF* your stopover in Istanbul is 10 hours or more, but *only* if a faster flight option does not exist. You can find more info at this link.

OR, if you would like to use your layover time to check out Istanbul, Turkish Airlines offers free tours of the city. They even provide the transportation & meals! You can find more info on the free tours at this link.

OR you can try searching for a flight with a really extended stopover in Istanbul (multiple days), either on the way there, or the way back, or possibly even both, and see if the price works out to be similar.

Here's how...



How to book the flight with an extended stopover in Istanbul

1. You may want to start with an example multi-city search on Kayak, like this one...

example multi-city search on Kayak, with an extended stop in Istanbul

2. Click on the 'Change' button (top right)

3. Change Luqa to one of the other cities from the list above.

4. I would recommend trying the dates from the list above for the 1st and 3rd flight. For the 2nd flight, play around, and see how it affects the price.

5. Click through from Kayak to Expedia or Travelocity or FlightNetwork or whichever site is showing this price.
