Canadian carrier Flair Airlines is expanding ambitiously with the addition of 13 new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
Flair will lease the initial 13 aircraft from one of its major financiers, 777 Partners, which recently signed an agreement with Boeing for the purchase of 24 new Boeing 737-8 aircraft, along with options to purchase an additional 60 aircraft.
The airline will begin taking delivery of the new aircraft in early 2021. With this order, Flair is on track to achieve its “F50” ambition to grow to 50 aircraft in five years.
“Our new, efficient aircraft will provide us with the foundation to execute our ultra low-cost business model. These aircraft will allow us to keep fares low while expanding our service to meet travel demand. As ultra low-cost, we have an extraordinary impact on the lives of Canadians and the communities in which they live by making travel across the country affordable and accessible,” says Stephen Jones, President and CEO of Flair Airlines.
