Flair Air expands route network in B.C.

Flair Airlines expanded their route network by adding service to three additional airports including Kelowna

Flair Airlines is expanding their route network by addition flights to three additional airports; Kelowna International Airport, Toronto Pearson Airport and Vancouver International Airport.

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to grow our relationship with Kelowna’s own Flair Airlines,” said Sam Samaddar, YLW’s Airport Director. “With Kelowna as their home base, this partnership will create lasting benefits for Okanagan residents and the regional economy.”

Flair notes that the expansion announcement is a ‘significant milestone’ for the airline.

“The addition of these three airports directly extends our reach into some of Canada’s larger and more popular destinations. Flair is thrilled to expand and bring with us our low fares and welcome new passengers,” stated Chris Lapointe, vice president of commercial operations.

Tickets are now on sale for flights beginning on December 15th, 2017 to these locations.
