Flair Airlines Expands Network With Eight New Destinations Across Canada
The Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier will add eight new destinations to their network across Canada, expanding their network to 18 destinations by August 2021.
On Wednesday (February 10, 2021), Flair Airlines announced an expansion of their route network with eight new destinations across Canada, bringing ultra-low fare travel to 18 destinations by August 2021. Starting on May 1st, Flair will add service to Ottawa and Kitchener-Waterloo (ON), Halifax (NS) and St. John (NB). From June, the carrier will also add service to Thunder Bay (ON) and Charlottetown (PE), while service to Victoria (BC) will launch in July and to Abbottsford (BC) in August. With the new routes, Flair will serve 18 destinations across Canada by August 2021. In Wednesday’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ President & CEO, Stephen Jones, said,
“Canadians have been paying too much for too long, and we are changing that with our ULCC model that makes getting around Canada affordable. Providing affordable air travel within Canada is the first step in restarting travel and tourism, and Flair is uniquely positioned with the efficiencies of our low-cost model. When non-essential travel returns, Flair will be there to reconnect families and provide the low fares that have long been denied to Canadians.
“We strongly support the need for restricting non-essential travel as Canada works to bend the curve. Flair was one of the first airlines to reduce our network and focus exclusively on essential domestic travel. We are confident, as travel returns, there is a strong market for low fare travel choices from a socially responsible Canadian airline. Flair’s ULCC business model doesn’t have the overhead and costs associated with legacy organizations and networks, and this allows our efficiencies to be passed along in our pricing.”
Flights on the new routes announced for May can now be booked through October 30, 2021 on the airline’s website with one-way fares on some routes starting from only $39.
Flair Airlines is Canada’s only independent ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) and the company’s mission is to make travel accessible and affordable for all Canadians. The airline operates a growing fleet of Next Generation Boeing 737-800s and 737-8 MAX aircraft and will provide low fare service to 18 Canadian cities by August 2021.
