Around the World Tours
In mid-September 2010 Flair Air was approached by Travel Guild, a Toronto based tour operator who asked to help recover a World Tour program that was in trouble. With three weeks remaining before departure, the airline that had been contracted to operate the program declared bankruptcy and was unable to perform.
The Flair team started by reconfiguring one of its 737-400’s from 158 Y class seats to 76 executive class seats. This included sourcing and purchasing the seats and establishing a new, approved LOPA seating configuration.
Over the next 3 weeks International Permits, Over-Flight Permissions, and Ground Arrangements in 14 countries were finalized. Flair was able to maintain a dispatch reliability of 100% for this tour.
Flair has developed and operated comprehensive winter tour programs for various Canadian-based tour operators and airlines including Transat, Sunwing, Cubana and Go Travel South. During these programs, Flair Air achieved a program dispatch reliability of 99.2%
Between 2008 and 2011, Flair Air transported over 150,000 passengers to and from Shell’s project worksite in Northern Alberta. During this time, a program dispatch reliability of 99.6% was achieved. Flair developed, and operated, a private, scheduled passenger system with weekly service to 14 points across Canada between YVR and YYT.
Between 2010 and today, Flair has operated numerous other programs for oil and gas companies including Shell, Encana, Imperial, CNRL and Husky.
