KELOWNA, BC, June 15, 2018 /CNW/ - Flair Airlines: Flair, Canada's only operating low-fare airline, today launches service from Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Calgary International Airport and Victoria International Airport. This marks Flair's commitment to expanding its route network as was announced earlier this year. With today's addition of Halifax, Calgary and Victoria - coupled with increased frequency on its existing routes - Flair has effectively doubled its flights and now has services stretching coast to coast.
Cities in which Flair flies to and from benefit significantly with lower airfares as a direct consequence of Flair's market presence: Since Flair launched service from Edmonton and Winnipeg (as an example) both communities have already reported 30-40% reductions in ticket prices (source: Kayak.com).
Echoing this, Flair's Executive Chairman, David Tait, commented, "In barely a year, Flair has had a tremendous impact in lowering the price of air travel in Canada and we are confident these new locations will be no different. We offer Canadians the opportunity to travel more often, to explore the country and, for small business owners, maybe visit out-of-province customers more often. We are delighted to bring spread our Flair throughout the country."
Flair Airlines will increase its flights per week from 90 to 188 beginning today - effectively increasing its direct, one stop and connectivity throughout its entire network.
