Canadian low-cost carrier Flair Airlines is the latest airline to launch low fare routes to the US after announced it will fly 11 new links in the winter adding further competition to the growing low fare Canada-US sector.
This winter will see a more competitive market south from Canada into the US as Swoop has announced plans to fly a range of routes into the US from October while Air Canada Rouge already runs various connections.
The new connections will extend Flair’s rapidly growing network to Florida’s Orlando International Airport, St. Pete-Clearwater (Tampa Bay) and Miami as well as to Palm Springs, Las Vegas and Phoenix-Mesa Airport.
Flair will fly from Edmonton to Las Vegas on 9 November and start links from 15 December to Phoenix/Mesa, Palm Springs, Orlando and Miami.
It will also serve various links from the same date from Winnipeg to Las Vegas, Phoenix/Mesa, Orlando, St. Pete-Clearwater, and Miami and from Toronto to Miami.
Flair’s executive chairman, David Tait said: “Having brought low fare service to 10 Canadian cities this summer, we are now taking the show on the road and heading south to some of the most popular winter getaway spots: Escaping the great Canadian winter will cost a lot less this year.”
For the winter schedule, Flair has also announced increased domestic service with new routes between Toronto to Winnipeg (daily) and Calgary to Abbotsford.
Previously a charter carrier, Flair moved to a scheduled passenger service in 2017. In June, the carrier doubled its domestic routes from 90 to 188 weekly flights and spread its coverage across Canada.
