On Wednesday (September 28, 2022), Flair Airlines announced that they will increase capacity by 50 percent for summer 2023, with additional frequencies on 41 routes, as well as the launch of new routes. The carrier will be taking delivery of seven new aircraft for the summer season, expanding their fleet to 27 aircraft. The new aircraft will be based across Flair’s Canadian bases, creating approximately 350 new jobs, including pilots, cabin crew, ground handling personnel and more. Frequency increases for summer 2023 include an additional 10 weekly flights between Vancouver (YVR) and Toronto (YYZ) for a total of 21 weekly flights. Service between Calgary (YYC) and Toronto (YYZ) will also ramp up to 21 weekly frequencies. Eight weekly flights will also be added on the Montreal-Toronto route bringing the weekly frequency to 12. Summer seasonal service to Nashville, Deer Lake and Mexico will also return.


In Wednesday’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Garth Lund, said,


“We’re looking ahead to another busy summer next year and we’ve increased our capacity significantly to keep up with increased demand. Welcoming an additional seven aircraft into our fleet allows us to increase frequencies on our most travelled routes, giving passengers more options. As we expand our fleet, we’re also thrilled to expand our team across the country as Canada’s largest low-fare airline.”


Flair’s summer 2023 schedule is now available for booking, and includes over 70 routes with fares starting as low as $19 from Abbotsford.


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 serves over 35 Canadian, U.S. and Mexican destinations. The airline plans on growing their fleet to 50 aircraft by 2025.
