Flair will offer flights to Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa and Kitchener/Waterloo. The flights will begin Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

“The new service to SFB is one of six U.S cities among several new destinations Flair is adding to its network as the airline rapidly grows to serve 26 destinations in Canada and the U.S,” the airport said in a release.

The airline announcement marks the second to come from Orlando Sanford International Airport regarding direct flights to Canada. Last month, airport officials said Swoop, a low-cost airline out of Canada, would start flights in early October.

Flights for Swoop are scheduled to take off starting Oct. 9, with passengers headed for Toronto. Trips to Hamilton and Edmonton will start in November.
