B.C.-based airline Hawkair has introduced a new Ultra Econo Fare class on its flights.

The Ultra Econo Fare is the airline’s lowest fare offered and is completely unbundled, allowing passengers the choice of paying for only what they need. The Ultra Econo Fare includes all fees, taxes and surcharges. Tickets booked under this fare are non-refundable and incur a fee for flight cancellation, bags and any changes to the booking.

Hawkair’s Ultra Econo Fare is in addition to the airline’s Vale and Flex fares, which offer the benefit of a free first checked bag, lower change fees and other benefits.

Why did Hawkair introduce the Ultra Econo fare?

“The short answer is we respect our guests,” said Jay Dilley, president of Hawkair. “In everything we do, we believe in helping people.

“The longer answer is we introduced this new fare class to give true options and to build on our trust and transparency. We’re not changing or hiding anything; we’re giving you the power, we lowered our prices for the simple reason that we wanted the advantage of our guests’ choices to reflect in their pockets, not ours,” said Dilley.
The Ultra Econo Fare is Hawkair’s lowest offered and needs to be booked early because of limited availability.

“If you’re looking for unbundled fares, our Ultra Econo is the perfect way for you to pay for what you need, and what you need only,” said Jocelyn Lebell, director of corporate services for Hawkair. “In a world of limited options, Hawkair is proud to be giving more. We’re looking forward to welcoming new guests that want the power and freedom of being ‘unbundled’ on our aircraft and can’t wait to see our valued guests the next time [they] travel.”

Hawkair’s flights to Prince Rupert, Smithers, Terrace-Kitimat and Dawson Creek, B.C., arrive and depart from YVR’s Domestic Terminal Building. The airline uses a fleet of De Havilland Dash 8 aircraft.
