Flair Airlines to Paint the Skies in New Colours.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2018 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

?

Flair Airlines, Canada's provider of ultra low fare travel, has announced its first aircraft with its new livery is complete, the company said.

This design was chosen in the summer of 2017 by Canadians during an online customer survey in which several options for the new livery were available to choose from for Flair's aircraft fleet.

The recently acquired Boeing 737-400 in Flair's new colours is one of two additional aircraft scheduled to enter service.

Flair intends to make significant announcements early in 2018 about its expansion into Canada's ULCC market.

Headquartered in Kelowna, BC, the company has a long history of operating a Boeing 737 charter airline that in 2017 began operating in the scheduled airline business, offering discounted airfares to Canadians. Flair serves Vancouver, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton, and Toronto.

With the recent purchase of two additional Boeing 737-400 aircraft, Flair will operate seven aircraft in the beginning of 2018 and plans to add two Boeing 737-800 aircraft later in the year. For 2019, Flair expects to add four more Boeing aircraft to accommodate the nearly 1.5 million ULCC passengers that are forecast to use Flair in 2019.
