Best Black Friday flight deals from airlines

Air Canada

Air Canada has a history of running good Black Friday promo code discounts. It’s on tap to release Black Friday deals over the next week or so, but some have already started. We’ve seen 20% off flights in Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean using the code PK2FCEU1 for travel Nov. 21, 2023, to May 31, 2024. However, this may change as the days go by.

Air Canada is also giving away 50 million bonus points with 1,000 bonus points guaranteed if you register and book a flight by Nov. 26 for travel Nov. 27, 2023, to June 30, 2024.

Additionally, there is a buy points mystery promo that will vary based on your account. In our tests, we found a 100% bonus when purchasing 100,000 points, which would result in getting 200,000 points for about $2,557, or 1.27 cents per point. This is a pretty great price if you have a specific use for those points in mind.
