Flying out of New York
When choosing your flight from New York to Ottawa, you'll have three airport options. Though John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the busiest of the three, it is actually the only airport that does not offer direct flights to Canada's capital. However, you can fly New York to Ottawa via Delta Air Lines, Air Canada or WestJet, with one stop in places like Toronto or Boston. If you choose LaGuardia Airport (LGA), you can fly direct from New York to Ottawa via Delta Connection and if you choose Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) you can catch a direct flight via Air Canada Express or United Express.
At all three airports, you will need to arrive at least three hours before your flight departs, with valid passport in hand. Not sure which New York airport to choose for your flight to Ottawa? You can set a Price Alert for the whole city and Skyscanner will send you price change alerts for the least expensive airport.

What to Expect in Ottawa
There is no time difference between New York and Ottawa, but there is a big difference in average restaurant and entertainment costs. With Ottawa's much lower prices, you'll be able to buy tons of great souvenirs and eat delicious food at ByWard Market's many trendy shops and restaurants.
Weather-wise, the spring and fall seasons in Ottawa can be unpredictable, so you'll want to be prepared for warm weather, cool weather, and rain, just in case. The summers in both New York and Ottawa are mostly warm and humid.
Ottawa generally receives more snow and ice and colder temperatures than New York does in the winters. You'll want to bring your warmest clothes if you visit the city between November and March. Flying from New York to Ottawa in the winter does have its benefits, though - when the famous Rideau Canal freezes over, it becomes the world's largest skating rink, stretching 7.8kms.
