February 6 Update: Flair Airlines offering unlimited flights for 90 days and Air Canada now accepts PayPal

Making the news over the past 24 hours is Edmonton based Ultra Low
Cost Carrier Flair Airlines. Why? Simply from their umlimited travel pass
promotion. Called the ‘Go Travel Pass‘ the new flight pass from Flair
Airlines offers unlimited travel to anywhere they fly for 90 days. There
are two options, the low cost option for $499+taxes and fees where you
still have pay for add ons and luggage, have black out dates and can’t
fly on Friday or Saturdays. The more expensive pass option at $699+taxes
and fees includes 1 checked bag (add ons are still extra) no black out
dates and you can fly on Fridays and Saturdays:

The passes are good for flights between February 13 and May 13 and
there are no extensions beyond those dates. What the promotion doesn’t
state is an end date to actually purchasing a pass.

This reminds me of
when Air Canada had an unlimited North America flight pass back in 2005
and one well known FlyerTalker from B.C. took advantage of it to fly
almost every day for a month as those flights earned Aeroplan miles and
he collected over 1 million of them during that month! Read his 2005 blog here.

Air Canada announced today that they now accept Paypal for purchasing tickets in Canada. Find out more here.

Air Canada has introduced a new payment option for customers by enabling them to use PayPal when purchasing tickets online at aircanada.com in Canada. The popular online payment system offers a secure and convenient means to buy tickets, with customers able to pay for their flights with their preferred payment method – bank account, credit cards or Visa Debit card – linked to their PayPal account.

“Air Canada’s strategy is to continually provide customers the opportunity to make their purchase using their preferred method of payment. We are therefore pleased to announce our agreement with PayPal, the popular online payment system that is secure, fast and convenient to use. Having now made PayPal available for ticket sales in Canada, we will look to expand the program to other markets as opportunities arise,” said Keith Wallis, Senior Director, Payments and Distribution, at Air Canada.

“We’re excited to add Air Canada—our first airline partner in Canada—to a growing fleet of airlines across the globe that leverage our global e-commerce platform to expand their reach,” said Paul Parisi, PayPal Canada President. “Our two companies share the same goal to provide a great checkout experience for travellers, so they spend less time buying tickets online and more time enjoying their trip.” Image via Air Canada
