Charlottetown, PE –
Starting July 6th, Flair Airlines will be providing non-stop service between YYG Charlottetown Airport and the Ottawa International Airport. The new Ottawa flights will complement Flair’s existing service to Toronto from Charlottetown that started in August 2021. Ottawa flights will be offered every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
“Flair’s announcement today is welcome news for YYG Charlottetown Airport and will go a long way in our efforts of rebuilding summer capacity in anticipation of a strong 2022 tourism season,” said Doug Newson, CEO at YYG Charlottetown Airport. “The increased low fare capacity for our market will provide convenient access for families, friends, and visitors looking to come to Prince Edward Island to explore all we have to offer and also allow for convenient access to our nation’s capital for Islanders.”
