Flair Airlines is a Canadian low-cost airline based in Edmonton, Alberta in Canada. The airline operates chartered and scheduled passenger flights domestically within Canada on a low-cost model. From its hub in Edmonton International Airport (YEG), Canada, the airline operates services to domestic destinations in Canada such as Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary.
In addition to the main base of Edmonton International Airport (YEG), the airline has a secondary hub at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). 'Flair Air' was established in 2005 as a cargo airline operating services between Cuba and Canada, with occasional charter services. It wasn't until 2017 that the airline was renamed to Flair Airlines, and became a scheduled airline.
In June 2017, Flair Airlines made it clear that it bought a travel company called New Leaf. Flair Airlines were operating Newleaf flights, as it wasn't licensed as an airline. Flair Airlines kept most of the Newleaf staff after the acquisition. The NewLeaf brand officially retired on July 2017 and NewLeaf flights are now operated under Flair Airlines.
In 2018, Flair Airlines made a hub transition from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) to Edmonton International Airport (YEG). Flair Air is recognisable for its green and black branding, which it introduced in 2019, shortly after it changed its name to Flair Airlines.
