Flair Airlines, an Edmonton-based low-cost airline, earned the Most Innovative Marketing Campaign Award for a heartwarming Thanksgiving social media initiative it launched this past October. The airline asked its social media networks what they were most thankful for this year and their followers responded with emotional stories. As a reward for heartfelt sharing, several people were awarded with free travel to help their holiday wishes come true:

  • Flair reunited two sisters with their brother, who was suffering from a brain tumor, for what might have been their last Thanksgiving together as a family;
  • They allowed two grandparents, one of whom is suffering with progressive dementia, to spend time with their grandchildren; and
  • Flair helped a father who had been working long hours away from home for months, pay his wife and children a surprise visit over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Since going live in August 2018, Flair Airlines has quickly transformed the way that passengers travel across Canada. This low-cost carrier has made air travel extremely accessible to a rapidly-expanding Canadian market. Its passengers are able to purchase inexpensive fares and pay only for the ancillary features they want, which allows for a personalized and affordable air travel experience.
