I would like to fly from Denver, CO to Regina SK in March (specifically to Regina on March 24 and returning to Denver on March 26).
I've tried the normal travel search engines (Kayak, Expedia, etc) and all the fares are over $500. In general, I have found traveling to Canada to be well over $500 even on relatively direct flights between Denver and Calgary/Vancouver/Edmonton.
Is there something about landing fees or international flfight that drives up the cost of these routes?
Any hints on better ways to make this more economical? Driving is quite long and there are no easy interim way points where I could fly then drive.
