Starting this winter, there will be more cheap flights between Canada and the US. Ultra-low-cost carrier Flair Air has announced 11 new nonstop routes between the two neighboring countries. Flights from Canada to the USA start at just $296 CAD roundtrip.
Flair Air Adds Ultra-Low-Cost Service Between Canada and USA
Recently, the other ultra-low-cost carrier in Canada, Swoop, announced new flights to the US. Flair Air has responded by adding flights of its own from its main hubs in Edmonton (YEG) and Winnipeg (YWG), along with one route from Toronto (YYZ).
Most of these new nonstop flights begin in mid-December and will have limited weekly frequencies. Flights from Edmonton to Las Vegas will begin in November and compete directly with Swoop. Flair Air will compete directly with other airlines on seven of these routes, but four will be the only nonstop links between the two cities.
Intro fares might not be what you'd expect from an ultra-low-cost carrier, but with little competition, these prices are decent for nonstop flights. At this time, it appears only flights originating in Canada to the US are bookable on Flair Air's website. We will keep you posted when we are able to book flights originating in the US to Canada.
Lowest fares for most routes are only available in March and April 2019. A few routes from Edmonton may have the lower fares available in the fall and winter as well. Click on the fare details for more info.
