Flair Adds Ottawa-Kelowna Lift

Flair Airlines is adding a new, non-stop route between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Kelowna International Airport (YLW) beginning Aug. 4, 2021, with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The carrier is expanding its network to include 19 destinations by summer; and it is will be adding 13 new aircraft to its fleet in 2021 in preparation for the safe restart of travel.

Stephen Jones, president & CEO of Flair, said: “Growing our service by connecting two iconic destinations on each side of the country is an important step in our bringing low fares and affordable travel options to more Canadians.”

Jones added: “We know there is a need for ULCC service as travel begins to return and connecting two cities that are year-round destinations will ensure Canadians can explore their country affordably all year long.”

Anticipating the return of travel this summer, Flair will begin increasing service in May.

Said Jones: “We know there is pent up demand for people to see families and have affordable vacations once it is safe for us to travel again. As a ULCC, our efficiencies are passed along in our pricing. Our low fares are an important step in restarting the tourism industry as they allow people to explore more, and both Ottawa and Kelowna are two attractive regions for domestic tourism.”

One-way fares on the new route start at $59 with taxes and fees included. In addition, Flair provides COVID Coverage which allows passengers to easily change their travel plans given the continued uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Bookings are now available for travel through Oct. 30, 2021, at
