Flair Airlines will grow its schedule 33 per cent in Canada and the United States with the introduction of four new 737 MAX aircraft in April and May 2022. 

Two additional aircraft will be added to Flair’s Toronto base, bringing the total there to five.  

A second aircraft will be added to Flair’s Edmonton base and a third aircraft to its Vancouver base. 

Flair’s Spring 2022 schedule will also expand from twelve aircraft to sixteen, the company said on Tuesday (Oct. 19), and 14 new routes will be added, including service to four new destinations. 

Three new cities will be added to Flair’s network in the U.S., creating a affordable options to San Francisco, Nashville, and Denver.  

Flair will also launch Comox as a second gateway to Vancouver Island, complementing existing service to Victoria and allowing visitors to explore even more of the island.

“Travelling and reconnecting with friends will be among the top priorities for many Canadians in the coming months, and Flair is continuing our growth by adding more aircraft and routes so we can bring sustainably low fares to even more iconic destinations across North America,” said Stephen Jones, president and CEO, Flair Airlines. “Whether you’re looking for a weekend break on Vancouver Island or hiking in the Rockies, Flair will get you there affordably.”

With the addition of the four aircraft, Flair plans to create 150 new jobs for flight attendants, pilots and operational support staff. 

Flair, which is aiming to reduce its carbon footprint, is also currently recruiting for 100 pilot positions to meet the needs of its growing fleet.

Fares to U.S. destinations start between $99 and $129 CAD one-way and several of the new domestic Canadian routes have fares as low as $49 CAD one way, including taxes and fees.
