The Edmonton-based ultra-low-cost carrier will serve the popular vacation destinations of Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Orlando (SFB) from Montréal’s Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) starting on October 29, 2023.

“Florida is incredibly popular for Montrealers, but historically the fares have been very high,” said Garth Lund, Chief Commercial Officer at Flair Airline. “Our Florida routes have proven popular across our network and so it’s a natural fit to offer service from Montréal.”

Here are the details of Flair’s new trans-border service.

Montréal (YUL) will join Kitchener (YKF), Ottawa (YOW), and Toronto (YYZ) as Flair’s fourth Canadian airport with nonstop service to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando’s Sanford Airport, the city’s secondary airport.

  • Depart Fort Lauderdale (FLL) 11:30 a.m. — Arrive Montréal (YUL) 2:50 p.m.

Fares start at $115 for round-trip tickets originating in Montréal, and from just $99 when originating in Fort Lauderdale.

This represents significant savings compared to the fares offered by Air Canada and Air Transat who also operate nonstop services on the route.

Meanwhile, the Montréal to Orlando-Sanford service will also operate daily, according to the schedule below:

  • Depart Montréal (YUL) 2:55 p.m. — Arrive Orlando (SFB) 6:10 p.m.
  • Depart Orlando (SFB) 11 a.m. — Arrive Montréal (YUL) 1:55 p.m.

Round-trip fares from Montréal to Orlando-Sanford start at $124, less than half the cost of the cheapest equivalent service with Air Transat to Orlando International Airport (MCO).

And if you originate in Orlando, you can get an even better deal, with round-trip fares starting at just $92.
