Flair is Canadian, but ‘not perfect,’ CEO admits. What’s next for the airline?
Flair Airlines’ CEO says he’s confident his ultra-low-cost airline is ready to take advantage of the summer travel boom after satisfying regulators that it’s Canadian enough to fly.But even as its chief executive concedes to Global News there’s room for improvement, analysts say headwinds facing the aviation industry like soaring fuel prices could actually bode well for the embattled airline.Flair spent much of the spring season trying to prove that the Edmonton-based airline was Canadian enough after the country’s transportation watchdog said in an initial ruling on March 3 that it might be in violation of rules limiting foreign ownership.But after Flair overhauled its board of directors and made a series of governance changes to limit the influence of one of its major U.S.-based investors, the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) ruled on June 1 that the airline indeed met the letter of the law to keep flying.“Flair is a Canadian airline, full stop,” CEO Stephen Jones told Global News in an interview this week.While the CTA’s final ruling landed in Flair’s favour, the agency confirmed to Global News on multiple occasions that if its review found Flair did not meet the standards of Canadian ownership, its licences to fly would be revoked.That led to uncertainty in the eyes of some analysts and consumers as to whether Flair would be able to fulfill bookings for summer travel.While he maintains Flair’s Canadian status was not in doubt internally, Jones said the months of speculation opened the door for the airline’s competitors to cast aspersions.“I think that our competitors made some good use of the fact that the questions were being raised.

(Credit: Colombia’s Ministry of National Defense / Twitter) Authorities in Colombia recently seized a shipment containing 1,000 kilograms (over 1 ton) of cocaine that was disguised as potatoes and frozen chips, according to police and news reports.A video of the seized shipment was shared on Wednesday by Colombia’s Ministry of National Defense, which showed officers extracting cocaine from the fake food. "The intelligence of the @PoliciaColombia dealt a resounding blow to drug trafficking by seizing a shipment of refrigerated and vacuum-sealed cocaine simulating yuccas and Creole potatoes," the defense ministry wrote, according to an English translation. It added that the shipment was destined for Spain. Anti-Narcotics Police Major General Ricardo Augusto Alarcón Campos, who appears in the video, said police received a tip from an anonymous caller about the shipment, according to 9News, a national news network in Australia."This may be the most innovative case discovered by drug traffickers in recent years, they had designed the drug in irregular molds simulating croquettes of cassava and papa criolla," Campos said, according to the outlet. A screengrab from a video shared by Colombia’s Ministry of National Defense shows the cocaine shipment disguised as potatoes and other foods.
