Flair Airlines is expanding its service to eight more Canadian destinations by the summer.

The low-cost airline carrier said service to five of the new destinations will begin in May with more being added in the coming months as non-essential travel within Canada safely restarts.

The first phase of expansion in May will add service to Ottawa and Kitchener-Waterloo in Ontario; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Saint John, New Brunswick.

Flair will then add service in June to Thunder Bay, Ontario, and Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

In July service will be added to Victoria, BC, with Abbotsford, BC, being added in August.

Last year, service was cut to Abbotsford Airport as the airlines continued to operate out of Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

“Canadians have been paying too much for too long, and we are changing that with our ULCC model that makes getting around Canada affordable,” says President & CEO Stephen Jones in a statement.

“Providing affordable air travel within Canada is the first step in restarting travel and tourism, and Flair is uniquely positioned with our low-cost model and efficiencies. When non-essential travel returns, Flair will be there to reconnect families and provide the low fares that have long been denied to Canadians.”

Flair anticipates tourism and travel will begin restarting in the spring and summer, and the “focus on domestic service in 2021 enables the airlines to provide more low fare options across Canada.”

The airlines will be serving 18 cities in total.
