Here’s a cute promotion that I love in theory, but that will probably be of no use to most, given the limited destinations involved.
Flair Airlines’ “Go Travel Pass”
Flair Airlines is a Canadian low cost carrier that has a fleet of seven Boeing 737s, which they fly to seven destinations (Abbotsford, Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg).
Well, they’ve just launched a cool promotion to promote travel this spring, given how seasonal leisure travel is in Canada (with the pre-summer season being a quiet time for travel).
How does the Travel Pass work?
With this promotion you can fly an unlimited amount over the course of three months, between February 13 and May 13, 2020:
- For 499CAD you can get a pass that includes some blackout dates, and that doesn’t allow you to travel on Fridays or Sundays
- For 699CAD you can get a pass that has no blackout dates, lets you travel all days of the week, and includes one free checked bag per flight
In both cases, taxes and fees aren’t included, and you have to book your ticket at least 48 hours in advance.
Tickets booked with this pass can be changed up to 48 hours before departure for free, while within 48 hours there’s a cost of 125CAD per direction to make changes.
Once you register for this pass you’ll receive an email with your booking portal log-in link, as well as your pass holder number, and instructions on how to provide payment. You’ll then be able to manage and ticket reservations through flyflair.com. Just follow this link, and click on the “already a go traveller?” button to access your account.
For the pass with blackout dates, the following dates are restricted:
- February 14-17
- March 20-30
- April 10-30
This is an awesome promotion during a period when they’re otherwise likely to have empty seats on just about all flights.
This promotion covers travel over a period of 13 weeks, so you’re looking at paying anywhere from 38-54CAD per week, depending on which pass you choose.
If you’re going to just take a couple of roundtrips during the promotion period, it’s probably not worth it. If you’re going to fly every couple of days during the promotion period, it most definitely is worth it.
Do any of our friendly neighbors up North plan on taking advantage of this awesome promo from Flair?
