Flair Airlines to Launch New Service Between Kamloops and Edmonton From June 15, 2023
Starting June 15, 2023, Flair Airlines will launch new nonstop service between Kamloops and Edmonton. The route will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The two cities have not had a direct connection since early 2016.
On Friday (February 10, 2023), Flair Airlines announced the launch of new direct service between Kamloops and Edmonton starting June 15, 2023, the first direct connection between the two cities since early 2016. The route will be operated thrice weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. To celebrate the launch of the new route, Flair is offering one-way fares from CAD $29, including taxes and fees. A limited number of seats at the low promotional fare are now available for booking on the airline’s website.
In Friday’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ President and Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Jones, said,
“We are excited to connect residents of Kamloops and Edmonton, who deserve direct, non-stop flights rather than connecting through Vancouver or Calgary. Whether it’s visiting friends and family for a long weekend or to travel for work or tourism, we are excited to take this first step in the Kamloops market and to bring more service to residents of both cities.”
Also commenting on the launch of the new route, Kamloops Airport’s Managing Director, Ed Ratuski, said,
“We look forward to welcoming Flair to Kamloops this coming June, in time for our peak summer season. The Kamloops to Edmonton route has long been on the community’s air service wish list, and with air service development support from Vantage, Kamloops Airport’s management company, this service is being realized. Beyond the convenience for visiting friends and relatives, this non-stop service enhances opportunities for tourism and trade development at both ends of the route.”
