NewLeaf Travel Company Takes to the Skies

NewLeaf Travel Company Credits 16,000+ Canadian Supporters

WINNIPEG, July 25, 2016 /CNW/ - NewLeaf Travel Company is excited to announce lift off with flights leaving from Hamilton, Kelowna, and Winnipeg on July 25th, 2016.

Following NewLeaf Travel Company's June 23rd 2016 announcement that they would resume sales for flights to 11 Canadian destinations, President and CEO Jim Young credited the 16,000+ Canadians who "purchased tickets and placed their trust in NewLeaf Travel Company. We've accomplished a lot, and walked through many hurdles in order to deliver an ultra-low-cost travel service."

Less than one month after ticket sales opened, NewLeaf Travel Company announced that the inaugural flight from Hamilton to Moncton on July 29th has sold out.  "This exceeds our projections, and we are thrilled.  In addition, many of our flights are near capacity," shared NewLeaf Travel Company's President and CEO, Jim Young.

NewLeaf Travel Company in partnership with Flair Air offers a long-awaited ultra-low-cost option for Canadian travellers.  NewLeaf Travel Company achieves base fares that are below other Canadian carriers through cost-saving measures, such as operating out of regional airports with lower landing fees; flying a simple point-to-point network with minimal time between flights; and offering purchase options for carry-on verses checked baggage, priority boarding, and call-centre assistance. 

Flights booked through NewLeaf Travel Company will be operated by Flair Air, a licensed Canadian airline with an experienced crew and pilots flying Boeing 737‐400 passenger jets.
