Flair Airlines is returning to Victoria.
The discount airline announced Thursday it will offer flights to Vancouver starting Aug. 23.
There are options for connections to several other Canadian airports, including the resource centres of Prince George and Fort McMurray, as well as Saskatoon and Regina — all new destinations also announced on Thursday.
The Edmonton-based airline, which is using four Boeing 737-800 jets, also flies to Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Kelowna.
Jim Scott, chief executive of Flair, called the return to Victoria “a much-anticipated” move.
“We continuously receive requests from our passengers to service these communities,” Scott said in a statement.
“Many of these areas are experiencing reduced accessibility, and we know that Canadians need affordable air fares now more than ever. We are committed to supporting these communities across the country as they safely reopen to travel.”
