Flair Airlines will introduce new twice-weekly service from Winnipeg to Regina and Saskatoon for spring 2022. The new routes are part of the carrier’s growth as they expand their fleet to 16 aircraft and create affordable connections across North America.
On Thursday (October 28, 2021) Flair Airlines, Canada’s only independent ULCC, announced the launch of new twice-weekly flights from Winnipeg to both Regina and Saskatoon starting next spring. One-way fares on the new routes will start at CAD $49, including taxes and fees. The additional routes are possible as the carrier expands their fleet to 16 aircraft and create new affordable connections across North America. For 2022, Flair will add new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to their fleet, as the company strives to become the greenest and most sustainable airline in Canada. The new MAX aircraft will deliver fuel savings and a CO2 reduction of 14 percent compared to previous generation aircraft. Recently, Flair announced a 33 percent fleet increase and additional routes within Canada and the U.S.
In Thursday’s announcement, Flair Airlines’ President and CEO, Stephen Jones, said,
“Low fare travel has arrived for the Prairies and we are excited to connect more families and travelers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Connecting Regina and Saskatoon to Winnipeg with sustainably low fares is an important step in Flair’s growth and we know our customers will love the service.”
Also commenting on Flair’s new routes, Winnipeg Airports Authority’s President and CEO, Barry Rempel, said,
“We eagerly anticipate the arrival of these new Flair service offerings between Winnipeg and Regina/Saskatoon at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Our partnership with Flair is growing and their efforts to provide Manitobans with more convenient, low-cost domestic travel options are playing a critical role in quickly restoring the affordable, wide-ranging air services our community relies upon to sustain itself and grow.”
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 28 Canadian and U.S. destinations by spring 2022. The airline plans on growing their fleet to 50 aircraft in five years.
