On Tuesday (April 13, 2021), Edmonton, Alberta-based Flair Airlines, Canada’s only Independent ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC), announced the launch of new nonstop service between Ottawa and Kelowna from August 4, 2021. The airline will offer twice weekly service on the route with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flair’s growing network will offer 19 destinations by summer 2021. The carrier is also adding 13 new aircraft to their fleet this year. One-way fares on the new route will start at only $59, including taxes and fees, and flights are now bookable for travel through October 30, 2021.


In Tuesday’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ President & CEO, Stephen Jones, said,


“Growing our service by connecting two iconic destinations on each side of the country is an important step in our bringing low fares and affordable travel options to more Canadians. We know there is a need for ULCC service as travel begins to return and connecting two cities that are year-round destinations will ensure Canadians can explore their country affordably all year long. We know there is pent up demand for people to see families and have affordable vacations once it is safe for us to travel again. As a ULCC, our efficiencies are passed along in our pricing. Our low fares are an important step in restarting the tourism industry as they allow people to explore more, and both Ottawa and Kelowna are two attractive regions for domestic tourism.”
