Flair Airlines to Expand Into Newfoundland With New Service to Deer Lake From June 2022
Flair Airlines is expanding into Newfoundland with new service to Deer Lake Regional Airport from Regional of Waterloo International Airport from June 2022, becoming the first ultra-low-cost carrier to serve Deer Lake.
On Friday (December 3, 2021), Flair Airlines announced the launch of new service to Deer Lake Regional Airport in Newfoundland from Region of Waterloo International Airport starting in June 2022. With the new service, Flair will become the only ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) serving Deer Lake. To celebrate the launch of the new route, Flair is offering one-way fares from CAD $49 from Kitchener-Waterloo.
In today’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ President and CEO, Stephen Jones, said,
“We’re excited to connect the Waterloo Region with Western Newfoundland as our first point of service to the province. Deer Lake is ideal for exploring Newfoundland and is the gateway to the majestic Gros Morne National Park. Flair’s goal is to make the unaffordable affordable and our $49 fares to Deer Lake do just that.”
Also commenting on Flair’s new service, Deer Lake Regional Airport Authority’s President and CEO, Tammy Priddle, said,
“We are excited to welcome Flair to Deer Lake as a new airline but also with a new destination for travellers leaving our region and a new market to access for people in Western and Southwestern Ontario. Flair provides affordable air travel and as we are recovering it will make it easy for families to reconnect more often. Being just 45 minutes away from Gros Morne National Park, as well as two other World UNESCO Heritage sites, L’Anse Aux Meadows and Red Bay, make Deer Lake the gateway to some of the most unique and picturesque destinations in the world. We are really looking forward to establishing this partnership and to the many more opportunities this will create.”
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 737-8s, and will serve 30 Canadian, U.S. and Mexican destinations by spring 2022. The airline plans on growing their fleet to 50 aircraft in five years.
