Flair Airlines began flying out of Ottawa on Friday and will soon be offering flights to eight Canadian cities, including Kelowna.

The airline, which was incorporated in Kelowna but is now based out of Edmonton, announced earlier this year it would have service between Kelowna and Ottawa. Those routes will start on Aug. 4.

“We are delighted to start operations at our newest base in Ottawa,” Flair chief commercial officer Garth Lund said in a press release. “Just in time for summer, we are bringing affordable travel options with one way fares as low as $49 on several routes.

“By August, we will have two aircraft based in Ottawa and provide non-stop, low fares to eight cities while creating more than 70 jobs in the community.”

Flair, which flies out of 19 Canadian cities, recently purchased 13 new Boeling 737 MAX 8 aircraft, and the first one flew for the airline on Thursday.

Flights between Ottawa and Kelowna will be available for as low as $59.
