On Tuesday, Flair Airlines announced its winter schedule, with the discount carrier doubling their number of flights to Las Vegas from Waterloo Regional Airport on a weekly basis.

“Waterloo is a market that has been underserviced by other airlines and since Flair has built a great relationship with the airport and has seen demand from travellers, we saw the opportunity to provide people with more direct access to an incredibly popular winter destination,” a spokesperson for the airlines told Global News.
