MIAMI – Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier Flair Airlines (F8) has announced massive domestic and international route expansion to begin in 2022.

The new routes will launch in the spring of 2022 and serve the city of San Francisco, Nashville, and Denver in the United States and Comox in Canada. The expansion to four new destinations will add 14 new routes to Flair’s schedule increasing their already significant growth.

In addition to the route network news, F8 announced four additional aircraft to be added to their bases of Toronto, Edmonton, and Vancouver in April and May of 2022. This will bring the fleet total to sixteen aircraft helping to deliver a 33% schedule growth. All together with the base and route expansion Flair expects this new service to create 150 new jobs, 100 of which will be pilots based in Toronto and Vancouver.

With the addition of new aircraft and adding more capacity, F8 is providing more affordable air travel options across Canada and to the USA. As travel returns, F8’s low fares will help kickstart tourism and reconnect families.
