Airlines Flair Airlines grows schedule by 33% in North America
Canadian Ultra-Clow-Cost-Carrier (ULCC) Flair Airlines has announced a major network upgrade with 33% more capacity.
Flair Airlines has announced new routes over the course of the upcoming summer schedule 2022, as the travel situation caused by the pandemic is slowly easing. Starting in March and April, the carrier seeks to offer 33% more flights than previously.
The routes will be mostly from the airline´s Edmonton hub in Canada, but new routes to the United States will be added, too. For the network expansion, Flair will welcome four new Boeing 737 MAX 8 to the fleet.
Two additional MAX aircraft will be added to the Toronto base, bringing the total there to five aircraft. At Edmonton, a second aircraft will be stationed, while a third aircraft will join the Vancouver base. These latest additions show the carrier´s ambitious growth plans for the future.
Stephen Jones, President and CEO, Flair Airlines, said: “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 […] Whether you’re looking for a weekend break on Vancouver Island or hiking in the Rockies, Flair will get you there affordably.”
Flair will open following routes in Canada between March and May: Calgary – Comox, Toronto – Victoria, Vancouver – Kelowna, Kelowna – Victoria, and flights from Edmonton to Comox, Regina, Montreal, Winnipeg and Saskatoon.
In the United States, Flair will expand its offerings with Toronto – Nashville, Toronto – Denver, Edmonton – Nashville, Edmonton – San Francisco and Vancouver – San Francisco. Most of the flights will be flown two or three times a week.
By implementing the new routes and integrating the four new aircraft, Flair stated that 150 new jobs for flit attendants, pilots and support staff will be created. The aircraft used, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 is offering lower CO2-emissions and noise due to modern engines and technology.
