Flair goes international

A low-fare airline that got its start in Kelowna has now gone international.

Flair Airlines launched its first U.S.-bound flight today, from Edmonton to Las Vegas.

The flight, according to company officials, was sold out.

“Today is a momentous day in our history as it the first of our multiple new trans-border services,” said executive chairman David Tait.

The flight was welcomed in Vegas by a salute of water cannons, Elvis, and showgirls.

The airline says about 30 delegates from Nevada will be on board the return flight. Those delegates are scheduled to attend an Alberta-Nevada B2B matchmaking event.

In December, Flair will also begin flying to Palm Springs, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix/Mesa
