Waterloo Airport and Flair Airlines Announce Additional Destinations From YKF

'Flair Airlines is Canada’s only independent Ultra-Low Cost Carrier offering tickets at a much lower price.'

Waterloo Region, ON – Today, Flair Airlines announced additional destinations out of the Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF). The new destinations include Fort Lauderdale and Orlando-Sanford, Florida, which will begin non-stop air service starting the week of October 31, 2021. This is in addition to the seven domestic destinations already operating out of YKF multiple times a week, including Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Kelowna (starting August 1), Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg.

“The increase in destinations will be an asset for the community,” commented Regional Chair Karen Redman. “We are pleased with Flair Airlines’ commitment to providing affordable travel and connectivity across Canada, as well as the opportunities this provides for an economic recovery in terms of business and tourism in the Region of Waterloo.”

Launched in 2017, Flair Airlines is Canada’s only independent Ultra-Low Cost Carrier (ULCC), which means they operate with a low-cost business model and offer customers tickets at a much lower price.

“Flair is very excited to be working with the Region of Waterloo International Airport and to bring the freedom of affordable travel to local residents,” said Stephen Jones, President and CEO of Flair Airlines. “As the world starts to come out of the pandemic this summer, Flair and YKF will be there with low fares to give more Canadians the opportunity to travel, visit friends and family, and to see what Canada and the U.S. has to offer.”
