NewLeaf Travel debuts brand new non-stop Edmonton to Winnipeg route

WINNIPEG, July 18, 2016 /CNW/ - NewLeaf Travel Company Inc. today announces an expansion to its route map, with a new non-stop flight addition between Edmonton and Winnipeg. Flights can be booked anytime on the new YEG to YWG route, which will run on Thursdays and Sundays beginning August 21, 2016.

The starting price point for the Winnipeg and Edmonton route is $99 one-way all inclusive

"We are very happy to announce this new, economical route between the Manitoba and Alberta capital cities," said NewLeaf Chief Executive Officer Jim Young. "Canadians have responded exceptionally well to our direct flights between destinations, and we are pleased to expand this service."

The new route expands NewLeaf Travel's flight service out of Edmonton, which already runs direct flights from YEG to Hamilton, Kamloops and Abbotsford.

As an ultra‐low cost travel company, NewLeaf works with Flair Airlines to offer base fares that are significantly less than other Canadian carriers. It achieves this through cost‐saving measures such as operating out of smaller airports with lower landing fees; flying a simple point‐to‐point network with minimal time between flights; and offering customers à la carte purchase of options such as carry-on and checked baggage, priority boarding, and call centre assistance for a fee.

NewLeaf Travel Company Inc. is a privately-held Canadian company headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba that provides leisure travellers with low fares and travel options that are unbundled and transparent. See more at
