Flair Airlines is setting its sights firmly on the Dominican Republic with the announcement of no less than 3 new nonstop services to Punta Cana (PUJ).

When the first service arrives in Punta Cana (PUJ) from Toronto (YYZ) on October 30, 2023, this will mark the first time the Canadian airline has ever flown to this Caribbean Island.

“Today marks a very exciting milestone for Flair Airlines as we proudly announce our first flights
to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic,” said Stephen Jones, president and CEO at Flair Airlines. “Expanding our network into the Caribbean is an important part of our growth strategy, and we can’t wait to welcome travelers onboard for a sun-soaked getaway in Punta Cana.”

Here are the details about Flair’s exciting Caribbean expansion.

Flair’s 3 New Services to the Dominican Republic

Canada’s ultra-low-cost Flair will fly passengers southward to the Dominican Republic starting October 30, 2023.

The Edmonton-based carrier will then expand its route network by adding routes originating from Kitchener/Waterloo (YKF), Ottawa (YOW), and Toronto (YYZ).

The below table details each of the new routes’ start date, schedule, and frequency:

To celebrate the addition of the Dominican Republic to the airline’s route network, Flair is offering one-way fares from as low as $109.

Note that Flair’s lowest fares don’t include carry-on or checked bags, but rather just a small personal item weighing up to 7 kilograms (15 pounds).

Hot Tip:

If all this talk of Punta Cana has got you longing for a Caribbean beach escape, then make sure to add some of our favorite beaches in the Dominican Republic to your ‘to-visit’ list before your next trip.

Final Thoughts

Flair’s new ultra-low-cost fares to the Dominican Republic will no doubt be welcomed by Canadians who are planning on escaping the cold this winter.

Here’s to the continued expansion of airline’s route network!
