Canadian ULCC Flair has a new livery chosen by customers. The airline has taken delivery of a 737-400 and plans to add more aircraft as it begins expansion, with the aim of becoming Canada’s largest ULCC airline.
Ultra Low Cost Carriers run very tight margins to match their very tight seats, so they have to save money either on purchase costs, or by having no maintenance costs – which is why most LCC’s either have very old or very new aircraft.
Flair plans in making major route and expansion announcements in 2018. The Canadian market seems vibrant at present, with Westjet about to introduce its own ULCC brand.
The aircraft is an Ex-Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-490 now registered as C-FLRS
