Flair is bringing the fun with another non-stop Mexican destination from Edmonton International Airport. Puerto Vallarta and its beautiful beaches are a popular destination from Edmonton with plenty of ways to relax and enjoy a great vacation. We’re glad to have Flair headquartered at EIA and helping bring more options for low-cost travel to our communities.

We’re pleased to see Flair introduce service to Puerto Vallarta from YVR, offering travellers another great option to visit to this popular area of Mexico from Vancouver. We look forward to continued growth from Flair as it expands its route map to connect even more travellers from YVR to exciting North American destinations.

Puerto Vallarta is an ideal resort destination for sun lovers, with sandy beaches on the Pacific Ocean surrounded by stunning views of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
