Flair Airlines (F8, Kelowna) has announced it would add its first B737-800 in January 2019. As previously reported, the Canadian ULCC will also wet-lease B737-800s - first a single unit from Air Transat (TS, Montréal Trudeau) between mid-November and mid-December, and subsequently two units from Travel Service Airlines (QS, Prague Ruzyne).

The airline said the three B737-800s it would have as of January 2019 would be deployed primarily on the recently announced international network to the southern United States from Toronto Pearson, Winnipeg Int'l, and Edmonton Int'l.

"Flair will have replaced the majority of its current fleet with B737-800NG’s by the end of 2019, by which time we expect to be operating eleven aircraft," Executive Chairman David Tait said.

"The first three [B737-800s] are leased aircraft from Travel Service. We are currently sourcing additional aircraft," Head of Marketing & Communications Julie Rempel further clarified in a statement to ch-aviation.

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, the charter specialist-turned-ULCC currently operates seven B737-400s which are on average 25.7-year-old.
