The Quebec government is looking to boost tourism in the province by capping round-trip flight costs to $500.

Both Quebecers and non-Quebecers will be able to travel by plane as far as the Gaspe peninsula for no more than $500 maximum, which includes connecting flights. This discount is expected to be applied at the time of purchase, as the airlines as required to claim the difference.

According to CTV News, “All Canadian carriers can participate in the program but must serve destinations year-round to qualify for the subsidy.”

This initiative will allow Quebecers to explore their province in ways that they never were able to before, which will help increase tourism and wealth in Quebec.

Transport Minister Francois Bonnardel told reporters earlier this week that this new initiative will start as of June 1st in the province.
