A new airline is launching in Canada, offering a cheap “unbundled” approach to flying.
NewLeaf Travel will start offering flights out of Hamilton, Halifax, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Abbotsford and Kelowna starting February 12th.
Flights will start at $89 and top out at $149 for a one-way ticket. This cost includes all airline fees and additional taxes.
BUT, if you want all the bells and whistles that come with air travel, it will cost you extra! You’ll pay additional fees for:
– priority boarding
– carry-on baggage ($25 per bag, although if it fits under your seat, it’s free!)
– unaccompanied minors ($110 – $125)
– changing bookings ($75 – $100)
– boarding pass printed at the airport ($10)
Have you flown on a cheap, discount airline, like a Ryanair in Europe or Allegiant in the U.S.? Will this discount approach work in Canada?
Paul the pilot called in to The Stafford Show, were he questioned the sanity of Canadians who fly with cheap airlines.
