Flair Airlines has launched its U.S. schedule expansion as 17 transborder routes begin over the next four days.
While changing advisories are currently impacting travel, the start of these routes ensures low fare travel options remain available for Canadians in the long term, Flair said on Thursday in a news release.
The service launches are between Canada and six U.S. destinations: Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Palm Springs International Airport, Hollywood-Burbank Airport, Orlando Sanford Airport, and Fort Lauderdale International Airport.
“Flair continues to grow at an impressive rate, and the launches of our U.S. routes this week are a milestone for bringing low fare travel options to Canadians. While we recognize the recent government advisories will influence travel decisions, we are committed to continuing these services at this time since many passengers are relying on our low fare service,” said Stephen Jones, president and CEO, Flair Airlines “Increasing our U.S. network means connecting families, friends, and travellers with more destinations across North America, and when the time returns for travel, Flair is ready to connect families without breaking the bank.”
Flair’s new U.S. routes will begin from these Canadian cities:
The inaugural flight from Abbotsford to Las Vegas is on Dec. 16 and will be Flair’s first U.S. destination from Abbotsford.
