Flair Airlines, this past weekend, kicked off service to two new sun destinations: Cancun and Los Cabos.
The launch includes weekly service to Cancun International Airport from Kitchener-Waterloo and Ottawa, and to Los Cabos International Airport from Abbotsford, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
“Expanding to Mexico is part of Flair’s exciting growth strategy and we're very happy to be launching service there. Canadians are tired of the ice and snow, and our affordable fares will help make it possible to take a trip,” said Garth Lund, chief commercial officer, Flair Airlines. “With one-way fares starting at $109, we’re making it easier than ever for Canadians to chase the sun in Mexico.”
Stephen Jones, CEO of Flair Airlines, added: “Service launch to Mexico couldn’t come at a better time, honestly...We deployed a proprietary algorithm to determine that Canadians want to escape the cold, right now!”
Non-stop service to Cancun from Ottawa International Airport began on Feb. 5 and from Region of Waterloo International Airport on Feb. 6.
Flights to Los Cabos from Abbotsford Airport, Edmonton International Airport, and Vancouver International airport began on Feb. 5.
“We are so pleased to see the growth of the interest of Canadian airlines in bringing access from new Canadian cities to Los Cabos,” said Rodrigo Esponda, managing director for Los Cabos Tourism Board. “With multiple certifications and strict protocol in place, Los Cabos has and continues to be a safe and attractive destination for those that choose to travel abroad. Canada continues to be one of our priority markets and with multiple new flights it’s easier than ever to travel to Los Cabos."
Russell Atkinson, director, air service development at the Vancouver Airport Authority, said Flair's growth at YVR "reflects its exciting destinations and affordable fares, which we know are both equally important to travellers."
One-way fares, including taxes and fees, begin at $109. There are limited seats and availability for the fares, which are one-way fares, including taxes plus additional options and services passengers may choose.
