The Comox Valley Airport is welcoming Flair Airlines to the region early next year with three weekly non-stop flights to both Edmonton and Calgary.

On Tuesday (Oct. 19), the airport announced the Edmonton-based airline will start flying out of YQQ beginning March 29, 2022.

“We’re very excited that Flair Air has chosen Comox as the gateway to central Vancouver Island,” said Mike Atkins, CEO of the Comox Valley Airport Commission.

“As air travel continues to rebound, Flair’s service to Calgary and Edmonton provide incredible low-cost options to visitors, businesses and friends and family alike. We can’t wait to share the beauty of Vancouver Island with Flair’s passengers.”

Earlier Tuesday, Flair announced 14 new domestic and U.S. routes, including Comox. The airline not only strives to achieve the lowest cost per seat mile of any Canadian airline, it also uses a fuel-efficient fleet of new aircraft, to achieve fuel savings and reduced C02 emissions, a vital step in lowering Flair’s carbon footprint.

Flair Airlines is Canada’s only independent Ultra Low-Cost Carrier (ULCC) and is growing to serve 28 cities across Canada and the U.S.

On Vancouver Island, Flair currently flies to the Victoria International Airport.
