Canada-based Flair Airlines has announced its plans to offer nonstop service between Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ) and Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) starting on December 15. The independent ultra-low-cost carrier will be the only airline offering nonstop service on the route for the upcoming holiday season.
“We see a vibrant future filled with opportunities as we expand and bring nonstop service between the Greater Toronto Area and the Coachella Valley,” Stephen Jones, President and CEO, Flair Airlines, said in a press release. “Our low fares and nonstop routes are changing the travel game for Canadians. We cannot wait to bring more travelers to these popular destinations. Our low fares mean more opportunities for adventure and warm weather this winter. Travelers can explore the local festivals, sporting events, outdoor activities or relax poolside. Palm Springs is an excellent destination for Canadians to choose for an affordable winter escape.”
Flair’s Toronto-Palm Springs route will currently be offered twice a week — Tuesdays and Saturdays. The route will coincide with previously announced transborder service to Palm Springs from Vancouver and Edmonton which also begins this fall.
“The city is delighted Flair Airlines has added Toronto to its itinerary of routes flying in and out of PSP,” added Mayor Christy Holstege. “We are excited to welcome Canadians from both coasts to sunny Palm Springs and we thank Flair Airlines for its continued investment in Palm Springs International Airport.”
“We are excited to welcome Flair Airlines and the new nonstop service from Toronto during our beautiful sunny winters,” said Visit Greater Palm Springs President & CEO Scott White. “With the return of our world-class events like Modernism Week, the American Express Golf Tournament, the BNP Paribas Open, and Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, there is no better time to find your oasis in Greater Palm Springs.”
