Officials at Flair, one of Canada’s ultra-low-cost airlines, announced on Wednesday that the carrier would be ramping up its flight schedule by almost 50% by summer 2023. Services will increase for domestic destinations as well as the U.S. and Mexico, with lots of flight deals on new routes for travelers along the way.
The goal of this schedule update is to make Flair Canada’s leading low-cost carrier. We’ve got all the details for you below.
Flair Increases Aircraft Capacity To Serve More Canadian Travelers
On top of a more extensive flight schedule, Flair is also expanding its fleet with an additional seven Boeing 737 aircraft.
“We’re looking ahead to another busy summer next year, and we’ve increased our capacity significantly to keep up with increased demand,” said Garth Lund, Flair Airlines CCO.
“Welcoming an additional seven aircraft into our fleet allows us to increase frequencies on our most traveled routes, giving passengers more options. As we expand our fleet, we’re also thrilled to expand our team across the country as Canada’s largest low-fare airline,” he continued.
The airline revealed its flight schedule for summer 2023 via Twitter, which you can see here.
