VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) — Flair Air —  the airline known for its lime-green striped planes and bargain prices — is returning to Victoria and taking off for the first time in Prince George.

Service is to begin in August as Flair expands to 11 cities across Canada including Saskatoon, Regina, and Fort McMurray.

“We continuously receive requests from our passengers to service these communities,” Flair CEO Jim Scott says in a release.

“Many of these areas are experiencing reduced accessibility, and we know that Canadians need affordable airfares now more than ever. We are committed to supporting these communities across the country as they safely reopen to travel.”

Flair Air advertises rates for as low as $39, one way.

 

The announcement comes as airlines struggle due to the COVID-19 pandemic and health and safety restrictions, resulting in mass layoffs. However, some airlines have recently relaxed seating restrictions, raising concerns from health officials.

Flair says safety remains the airline’s top priority.

“Passengers who choose to travel can expect to complete a visual mask check, answer a health check questionnaire, and have their temperature taken prior to boarding the aircraft,” says the airline.

Flair’s previous attempt to launch in 2018 was called off because of low bookings.
