Flair Airlines is expanding into Newfoundland with service to Deer Lake Regional Airport from Region of Waterloo International Airport beginning in June 2022, becoming the first ultra low-cost carrier to serve Deer Lake.
“We’re excited to connect the Waterloo Region with Western Newfoundland as our first point of service to the province. Deer Lake is ideal for exploring Newfoundland and is the gateway to the majestic Gros Morne National Park,” said Stephen Jones, president and CEO, Flair Airlines. “Flair’s goal is to make the unaffordable affordable and our $49 fares to Deer Lake do just that.”
The service will bring affordable air travel to a previously unserved market and will help connect Canadians across the country who have been paying too much for too long.
“We are excited to welcome Flair to Deer Lake as a new airline but also with a new destination for travellers leaving our region and a new market to access for people in Western and Southwestern Ontario. Flair provides affordable air travel and as we are recovering it will make it easy for families to reconnect more often,” said Tammy Priddle, President and CEO, Deer Lake Regional Airport Authority. “Being just 45 minutes away from Gros Morne National Park, as well as two other World UNESCO Heritage sites, L’Anse Aux Meadows and Red Bay, make Deer Lake the gateway to some of the most unique and picturesque destinations in the world. We are really looking forward to establishing this partnership and to the many more opportunities this will create.”
One-way fares, including taxes and fees, begin at $49 CAD from Kitchener-Waterloo. There are limited seats and availability for the fares.
