This is a newbie airline that has picked up some of the ACE work, including a contract for Cubana. I believe that they have 2 727's.

Flair Airlines has a contract with Cubana replacing All Canada Express that went out of business. I can't find a web site but I believe that they have a licence for charter passenger service also. One of thier Boeing 727-281/Adv(F) was ferried in from Havana to YHM for service to at Ontario Flightcraft.

I have been so busy lately I even forgot to check back! Shame on me  sorry 

Thanks for the responses and specially for that pic RickYHM.

Also, didn't know All Canada had one out of business. When did this happen?


Shame on the poor livery, very similar to Capital Cargo's, whose 727s I usually see. Reading the caption I see its the ex Afrijet one (wonder if that small Nigerian airline also went bankrupt).

I knew the name sounded familiar, I think I might have read somewhere about this start up a while back. Specifically that was it going to fly pax 727s.

(Get a better livery FLAIR)  Big grin

Greatest case of union-busting that I have ever seen is what this is...Flair was started by one of the founders of Kelowna Flightcraft...with some ex-kelowna planes...and more to come...

Yes it is True they were started by one of the FORMER founders of Kelowna Flightcraft but they started with their own aircraft, Flair's passenger A/C did fly for a short period of time with KF but it was owned by Flair and leased to KF.
