Low-cost carrier Flair Airlines says it is expanding service to eight cities in Canada, bringing its number of domestic destinations to 18 by the summer.

Starting May 1, Flair will expand service to Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, Halifax and Saint John, N.B.

Flair will also add service to Thunder Bay, Ont., and Charlottetown in June, to Victoria in July and to Abbotsford in August.

Flair CEO Stephen Jones says the airline believes there will be a strong market for domestic flights once tourism and travel begin restarting in spring and summer.

The announcement comes as other airlines temporarily suspend domestic and international routes in response to a difficult business environment.

Atlantic Canada, where Flair will be expanding with flights to and from Halifax, has been hit hard by flight cancellations, with some cities left without commercial air service.
