Canadian low-cost carriers Flair Airlines and Sunwing Airlines are to both enter the Miami market beginning this winter after revealing plans for new routes.

Flair will fly from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto from December, and Sunwing will run a total of 10 weekly flights from to Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Ottawa starting in November and December.

Edmonton, Quebec City, Ottawa and Winnipeg mark new routes for MIA, which will bring its total number of Canadian non-stop destinations to six.

Flair and Sunwing will become MIA’s eighth and ninth and low-cost carriers, and will help serve more than 700,000 annual passengers between Miami and Canada.

Sunwing serves over 45 destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida, will utilise 189-seat Boeing 737-800 NG and recently acquired 737-800 Max aircraft on the new routes.

Flair will operate Boeing 737s on the route and MIA is one of 11 new routes it is operating to six cities across the US from Canada this winter.
