Flair Airlines launched its inaugural flight from Edmonton to Quebec City on July 7, connecting the two cities together through direct flights for the first time.
Flights will run twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays, said the low-cost carrier.
“We are excited to launch the first ever direct flight connecting Edmonton and Quebec City,” said Garth Lund, chief commercial officer at Flair in a press release last week. “We look forward to offering Edmontonians more choice and affordable travel options as well as continuing our relationship with the Edmonton International Airport.”
Myron Keehn, president and CEO of Edmonton International Airport (YEG), called Quebec City "a vibrant Canadian destination," adding that new route will "open doors for increased tourism and business connections between the two regions."
“Flair continues to grow and evolve, and as their homebase and hub, we couldn’t be more excited about this growth," Keehn said. "Flair serves 15 non-stop destinations from YEG, and we look forward to continuing to see this number grow and welcome more visitors, businesses, and opportunities to the Edmonton Metro Region.”
One-way fares from Edmonton to Quebec City begin at $59 plus taxes and fees, the airline said.
