The German scheduled airline Hahn Air announced a new partnership with Flair Airlines (F8). The Canadian low-cost carrier from British Columbia has joined Hahn Air’s network of more than 300 partners to benefit from its distribution services. Specifically choosing the HR-169 product, Flair Airlines expands its commercial reach to more than 100,000 travel agencies in over 190 markets worldwide, enabling the issuance of its flights on the HR-169 ticket through the Amadeus GDS.
“We are very excited about this new era of optimised distribution where Flair Airlines has the ability to reach Hahn Air’s large network of travel agencies worldwide”, said Mirza Smajic, Director of Passenger Sales and Marketing Commercial Department Schedule Flights at Flair Airlines. “New business opportunities mean higher yields and, mainly, more satisfied travelers who get to discover some of the best Canadian destinations using our low-cost services.”
Flair Airlines is a Canadian low-cost carrier based at Kelowna Airport (YLW) in British Columbia. Established as a charter airline in 2005, Flair Airlines became a scheduled airline in July 2017 after the acquisition of Newleaf Travel Company, Inc. Today, Flair Airlines operates approximately 100 scheduled flights a week to seven Canadian destinations. Flair Airlines has a fleet size of seven Boeing 737 aircrafts.
“By welcoming Flair Airlines into our partner network, we are proud to add another low-cost carrier with attractive domestic routes and the highest standards”, says Steve Knackstedt, Vice President of the Airline Business Group at Hahn Air. “We recognise the untapped sales potential of Flair Airlines and with our services we create an extensive international reach and strong financial standing to provide market coverage in its offline markets.”
