Great news for those who enjoy taking a break from the Canadian winter! The Canadian low-cost carrier Flair Airlines recently announced two new routes to the popular Mexican coastal city Puerto Vallarta. Services will begin in winter 2022.
The company wants to offer Canadian travelers the possibility to experience the warm weather and sandy beaches of Puerto Vallarta by the end of the year, just like the American low-cost carrier JetBlue is doing at the moment.
According to the information shared in a press release, Flair Airlines will allow more Canadian travelers to escape winter and enjoy this sunny destination with affordable tickets. Non-stop flights will connect Edmonton and Vancouver to Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR).
Flair Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Jones said: “We’re here to offer affordable options to Canadians, and growing our network in Mexico is an exciting step forward as we continue our international expansion.”
Jones also mentioned weather conditions: “We are looking forward to partnering with Puerto Vallarta International Airport to bring another sunny destination to our passengers. We know it will be a hot destination this winter, with temperatures averaging 30 degrees in November.”
The new services will begin on November 3 from Edmonton and November 5 from Vancouver. One-way fares will start at $99.
The company wants to position itself as Canada’s main ultra-low-cost carrier and is also currently offering travelers a special promo—until May 5— with domestic flights for $39 per service.
More Affordable Vacation Options For Canadian Travelers
Canadian families will have more affordable options to fly to Mexico. Now, along with other low-cost Canadian carriers such as Swoop—also offering flights to the Dominican Republic— Flair will be offering passengers the possibility to explore popular and exotic destinations at prices surprisingly low.
Starting in November, from Edmonton and Vancouver, Canadians can take direct flights into paradise with Flair Airlines. Myron Keehn, Vice President Air Service, Business Development, ESG and Government Relations, Edmonton International Airport, said: “Flair is bringing the fun with another non-stop Mexican destination from Edmonton International Airport.”
Keehn also added: “Puerto Vallarta and its beautiful beaches are a popular destination from Edmonton with plenty of ways to relax and enjoy a great vacation. We’re glad to have Flair headquartered at EIA and helping bring more options for low-cost travel to our communities.”
The new non-stop flights to Puerto Vallarta will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays, twice a week from Edmonton and prices start at $109. From Vancouver, the carrier announced weekly flights on Saturdays and one-way fares begin at $99.
Canadians will be able to enjoy one of the most beautiful Mexican cities in the Pacific for just about $200 round trip. They can explore the traditional villages, swim in the warm crystal clear waters of beaches like Playa Los Muertos or Playa de Oro, and have exciting adventures diving or water skiing.
