EDMONTON, ALBERTA — Edmonton-based low-cost carrier Flair Airlines has announced a long-term partnership with Tucson International Airport to bring together Canadian travelers with Arizona's sunny and warm cities during Canada's cold winter season.

To this end, Flair Airlines will launch five new routes from Edmonton International Airport, Fort McMurray International Airport, Lethbridge Airport, Prince George Airport, and Windsor International Airport to Tucson International Airport. The flights will begin next year in November.

“Basing winter operations in Tucson, Arizona offers an exciting new option for Canadians. We know that Canadians in communities across the country will be keen to soak up the winter sun in Tucson. With consistent service for years to come, we think this is the beginning of an excellent yearly tradition for Canadians,” said Garth Lund, Chief Commercial Officer, Flair Airlines.

“For too long, many communities in Canada have been without service to warm-weather destinations. Flair is looking forward to stimulating new demand with our everyday low fares,”

Mr. Lund added.
