      Travelling around Canada can be expensive, but a Canadian airline is aiming to make it more affordable and accessible.

      Edmonton-based Flair Airlines has introduced its Go Travel Pass, which offers unlimited domestic flights for three months (from February 13 to May 13, 2020).

      The flight pass starts at $499 (plus taxes and fees) but comes with some blackout dates and excludes Friday and Sunday travel, as well as baggage fees.

      For $699 (plus taxes and fees), passengers won’t have any blackout dates and will be given one checked bag per flight.

      Those prices are significantly lower than the cost of one roundtrip flight to Toronto from other major airlines during peak travel periods.

      Sales for the travel passes end on February 12, 2020 at midnight, and are based on availability.

      “Whether you are a student who needs to visit home, a small business owner on a budget, a family needing to connect or an adventure seeker looking for your next thrill, all Canadians deserve to travel without hesitation,” Sarah Riches, director of commercial for Flair Airlines, said in a press statement.  “This pass is for the people and speaks to our mission of making air travel more accessible, affordable and desirable for all.”

      The low-cost carrier launched in 2017 and operates more than 120 per week across Canada. Flair flies to seven cities in the country, including Vancouver, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Toronto.

      Canada’s only other low-cost carrier is Swoop, owned by parent company WestJet.
