Flair Airlines To Connect Toronto With Kingston Jamaica From Mid-December


  • Flair Airlines will launch thrice-weekly direct service between Toronto and Kingston, Jamaica, adding to its growing network.
  • The airline will face competition from other carriers already operating the route, including Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge, Caribbean Airlines, Swoop, and Westjet.
  • Flair is expanding its Caribbean operations, with new routes to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and various destinations in Mexico.

From December 16th, the quarter of a million Jamaicans calling Canada home will be able to fly directly between Toronto and Kingston with Flair. The carrier will face stiff competition, with Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge, Caribbean Airlines, Swoop, and Westjet already operating the route.

Launching mid-December, the thrice-weekly service to the Jamaican capital will become Flair’s fifth country, including the United States, Mexico, and soon to commence, the Dominican Republic.
