Flair Airlines is set to take flight from Prince George again starting in roughly three months.

At the beginning of 2021, YXS airport said Flair Airlines was temporarily grounding flights involving the northern capital for January and February, hoping to return in March after having to pause services as a result of continued restrictions on travel amid the pandemic. 

Services are now set to resume on May 1, 2021, YXS says.

Prince George was one of six Canadian Airports the company decided to suspend as public health officials discourage non-essential travel. 

Since March 2020, Flair Airlines has been marked five times for COVID-19 exposure on aircraft departing or arriving in Prince George with the last flight on Dec. 31, 2020, involving COVID-19.
