According to a new report from the Montreal Economic Institute, Canadians pay approximately $428 more for round-trip flights compared to American travelers.
This difference is made up of surcharges and taxes of flights leaving Canada. Many Canadian travelers, up to five million per year, actually cross the border into the United States to catch their flights.
For example, a round-trip flight between Montreal and Fort Lauderdale compared to a round-trip flight from Plattsburgh, New York to Fort Lauderdale costs travelers about 36 percent more. The study showed that around 85 percent of those travelers flying out of Plattsburgh are actually Canadians.
