Those looking to fly within the country now have another option to reach those destinations, with their wallets carrying a lighter load.
What is being billed as Canada’s first ultra-low-cost travel company, NewLeaf Travel, officially launched on Wednesday.
Initial departures begin next month between 7 smaller airports, Halifax, Hamilton, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Abbotsford and Kelowna, for as low as $89 one-way.
The lower costs mean passengers will see charges for carry-on bags, priority boarding and snacks.
“Our business model, introductory fares and routes are all about making air travel possible for a greater number of Canadians seeking alternatives to the status quo. It’s great news for those who want to dive right into the ski season, visit loved ones or discover new destinations in an affordable way. Our winter schedule runs until March 13, 2016 and new routes and destinations beyond that date will soon be announced.” – Jim Young, President and CEO, NewLeaf Travel Company
