Flair is also starting service to 6 U.S. destinations this fall and currently serves 18 destinations in Canada. The airline says it will grow to serve 28 destinations by spring 2022.

Fares to U.S. destinations start between $99 and $129 one-way and several of the new domestic Canadian routes have fares as low as $49 one way, including taxes and fees, the ultra low-cost carrier said.

Flair says the addition of the new aircraft will create 150 new jobs for flight attendants, pilots and operational support staff.

Flair is currently recruiting for 100 pilot jobs to meet the needs of its growing fleet.
