We’re excited to connect the Waterloo Region with Western Newfoundland as our first point of service to the province. Deer Lake is ideal for exploring Newfoundland and is the gateway to the majestic Gros Morne National Park. Flair’s goal is to make the unaffordable affordable and our $49 fares to Deer Lake do just that.

The airline states that the service will bring affordable air travel to a previously unserved market.

Tammy Priddle, President and CEO, Deer Lake Regional Airport Authority, said:

We are excited to welcome Flair to Deer Lake as a new airline but also with a new destination for travellers leaving our region and a new market to access for people in Western and Southwestern Ontario. Flair provides affordable air travel and as we are recovering it will make it easy for families to reconnect more often. Being just 45 minutes away from Gros Morne National Park, as well as two other World UNESCO Heritage sites, L’Anse Aux Meadows and Red Bay, make Deer Lake the gateway to some of the most unique and picturesque destinations in the world. We are really looking forward to establishing this partnership and to the many more opportunities this will create.
