This week in OrilliaMatters+: Thursday's free webinar will focus on 'new normal' of air travel

Travel is top-of-mind for many but there are numerous questions surrounding the ‘new normal’ where travel is concerned. There's still time to sign up for a virtual sit down with Garth Lund, the Chief Commercial Officer of Flair Airlines, to discuss what travellers can now expect. 

What safety precautions are airlines taking? How has the pandemic changed the travel industry? Is travelling cheaper now? Answer these questions and more tomorrow 12 p.m. All webinar attendees will receive a discount code from Flair Airlines.
