welcome to F50

We are trailblazing with an ambitious, rapid expansion that disrupts the monopolistic practices of Canadian airlines. Flair is growing our fleet, route network, and frequency of flights in record time. There’s nothing stopping us now!

We are the pioneers of ultra-low fare travel in Canada, and since our launch in 2017, we’ve brought affordable travel to more than 30 Canadian and North American destinations with a fleet of 20 B737 (-8 and NG) aircraft. We’re set to bring on more aircraft in 2023 and operate a fleet of 50 aircraft within the next few years.
