Short of pricing every route, consider traveling off season.
When to Go:
You might also be able to find a good fare from Toronto to the UK, and there are some inexpensive flights from the UK to Sicily.
not everybody goes to Palermo,
and Trapani airport is right in the middle of one of the most intresting provinces of Sicily.
Archeological sites, medieval towns, natural reserves, islands, beaches and little villages are all within small distance.
I don't think a little wait at the airport for the bus is as catastrophic as you describe it.
How fare is your nearest airport?
And though Birgi isn’t the most convenient if Palermo is your ultimate destination, Salvo is correct, there is so much to see and do in Trapani province, and even into the provinces of Palermo or Agrigegento – Segesta, Erice, the Golfo del Castellammare (Castellammare del Golfo, Scopello, San Vito Lo Capo, the Zingaro Reserve), the Alcamo wine region, Marsala, Mozia and the salt pans, Trapani, the Egadi islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo), Sciacca, Selinunte, Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples and Monreale.
You would have many option!
