Pearson Airport in Mississauga adds new flights to Chicago

Travellers looking to get away to Jamaica will soon have more flight options at Pearson Airport in Mississauga.

Edmonton-based low-cost carrier Flair Airlines announced this week that starting on Dec. 16, it will operate three weekly flights between Pearson and Kingston, the capital of the Caribbean island nation.

With the addition to the carrier’s schedule, Flair officials say the company now serves five countries.

“This is more than just a new route for us; it’s a bridge between communities and an opportunity to create lasting memories. There is a vibrant Jamaican community in Canada who will be able to use this service to reconnect with loved ones more often at an affordable price,” Garth Lund, Flair chief commercial officer, said in a news release. “We look forward to welcoming travellers on board as we embark on this exciting journey together.”

With an expanding fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft, Flair now serves more than 35 cities in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

The carrier announced in October 2021 that it was bumping up its business at Pearson Airport, promising the future addition of nonstop flights to numerous destinations across North America.
