Here's a spreadsheet of every nonstop ('direct') flight from Montreal or Quebec City to somewhere with a beach, sorted by the number of hours to fly there

A beach

I've created a spreadsheet that lists every non-stop ('direct') flight from Montreal, Quebec City, and Bagotville to somewhere with a beach, sorted by the number of hours it takes to fly there.

The spreadsheet also lists the airlines and the days of the week you can find the direct flights on each airline. It is focused on flights that operate in the late fall and winter.

And yes, there is a difference between a non-stop flight and direct flight. But pretty much everyone, outside of the travel industry, uses the word 'direct' to mean a flight with zero stops.

In the same spreadsheet you can also find the same info for all other major cities in Canada, which might help with planning trips alongside friends or family members in different cities.

The Spreadsheet

NOTE:

Depending on your browser, Google Sheets may start you off in the wrong worksheet (Calgary). You may need to click on Montreal (YUL) at the top or bottom of the spreadsheet.

You should see a list of different Canadian cities to choose from at the top or bottom of the spreadsheet.

Make sure you are looking at the correct origin city.

Flights from Quebec City and Bagotville are listed in the same worksheet as 'Montreal' (scroll down below the Montreal flights).

Things It Might Be Useful For

• If you live in the Montreal area there are over 50 destinations with a beach that you can reach with a direct flight. Meanwhile someone living in Winnipeg or Halifax has about 12 such options.

So if you're looking to coordinate a beach vacation with a friend or family member that lives somewhere else in Canada you may want to start by looking at the available destinations from the city with the least number of options.

Or, those same friends and family may be able to find a connecting flight through Calgary or Vancouver (if they live in Western Canada) or through Montreal or Toronto (if they live in Eastern Canada).

Tell them to try searching from their city using the same days of the week that the airlines fly from those major hub cities. This will give them the best chance of finding a 1-stop flight.


• If you're looking into package deals, such as all inclusive packages, those packages will have direct flights on the same days shown in this spreadsheet.

For example, if Air Canada has direct flights on Thursdays, you'll be able to find an all inclusive package with Air Canada Vacations on a Thursday that also has direct flights.

The same goes for Sunwing / Sunwing Vacations. And Air Transat / Transat Vacations.
