Flair Airlines is owned by Jim Rogers, who used to be a co-owner in Kelowna Flightcraft. They will be flying a 727-200 passenger airplane. They may have more but their first aircraft is sitting in YLW right now on the KFC ramp. KFC was operating that a/c earlier in the year. No word on when and where they are going to start flying to.
