Low-cost Canadian airline landing at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in fall
PHOENIX — A Canadian low-cost airline is making its return to the Valley this fall, adding new service between Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and three cities.
Flair Airlines will begin round trips from Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary to the East Valley airport beginning Oct. 31, the company announced Thursday in a press release.
Fares will start at $79 for one-way flights and will be available through March 26 of next year.
“For years, Canadians have been over-paying for air travel to domestic and U.S destinations,” Stephen Jones, Flair Airlines president and CEO, said in the release. “Flair is here to ensure that Canadians are no longer taken advantage of and receive low prices for even better service.
“The fares to our new destinations ensure Canadians can easily enjoy travel this winter and spend some much-deserved time away exploring sunny new places.”
Flair launched a route between Edmonton and Gateway in 2018 that ended in 2019.
Flair is flying to six warm-weather U.S. destinations as part of the promotion, including Las Vegas and Burbank.
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport serves more than 45 cities with nonstop service via a variety of companies, according to the official website.
