The Winnipeg airport serves a ton of destinations, with almost 50 DIRECT flights!

This is good news for the eastern prairies because let’s be honest… there aren't a ton of destinations within driving distance from Winnipeg. Having a good airport with lots of accessible direct flights is key, and Winnipeg delivers!

YWG airport

One of the biggest changes seen recently at YWG was the addition of Swoop Airlines in 2019. Swoop came in and added 13 direct destinations, both domestic and international. The best part, they are more than HALF of what Westjet or Air Canada charge. This gives Winnipeg’ers so many more affordable options for flying out of their home-city airport, especially when escaping the cold winters.

Here's a detailed list of all the direct flights from YWG airport in Winnipeg, MB

Tips for more international flights from Winnipeg

If none of these international destinations float your boat, I suggest taking a super-cheap flight to a nearby Canadian airport that has better options.

Take Flair Air on a $79 flight to Calgary, or a $99 flight to Toronto and watch see how many places you can now fly direct!

Here are some examples:

Direct International Flights from Calgary (YYC):
Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Mexico City, Tokyo

Direct International Flights from Toronto (YYZ):
Sao Paulo, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dubai, Honolulu

Many international travellers will use Winnipeg’s airport as a stepping stone to get to either Calgary or Toronto to have better access to worldwide flights. Both flights are just over 2 hours, making them reasonably fast to get to.
