Flair Airlines announced that it will add a third destination in Mexico: Puerto Vallarta (PVR), which will be connected to Edmonton (YEG) and Vancouver (YVR).

Both routes will begin in the first week of November, coinciding with the increase in demand from Canadian tourists seeking to vacation during the winter season.

The ultra-low-cost carrier currently operates a weekly flight between Cancun (CUN) and Toronto-Waterloo (YKF), to which Ottawa (YOW) will be added during the winter season. Los Cabos (SJD) was Flair’s second inaugural destination, connecting to Abbotsford (YXX), Edmonton (YEG) and Vancouver (YVR) between November and March.
