    Calgary Travelers' Reviews

    3Be sure to pay before you go to the airport

    We flew for the first time on Flair Airlines. Our first notification from Cheap-o gave the wrong departure time. However, I went to Flairs' website and got that straightened out. I paid before we left for our luggage and seat selection and printed out our boarding passes. Saved much grief at the airport as many travellers did not take this step. The planes were good and the seating comfortable. The staff was friendly and I would fly Flair again, although I would make sure the total price was competitive. A bit late leaving Calgary on the return trip but that wasn't a problem. All in all, satisfied with the airline and the service. - Stephen  Aug 14, 2019
