WINNIPEG — NewLeaf Travel, billing itself as “Canada’s newest ultra-low-cost travel company”, will announce its route map, pricing and booking details at three press conferences tomorrow.
NewLeaf says it plans to “revolutionize the Canadian travel market”. There’s no word yet on whether the airline will sell through the trade. The airline’s website is newleaftravel.ca. “No more driving across borders to catch cheaper flights. No more paying extra costs for things you don’t want. You pay for your seat and the rest is up to you.”
According to reports NewLeaf was originally scheduled to launch last summer, but was delayed. NewLeaf’s flights will be operated by Kelowna’s Flair Airlines Ltd.
Three separate events are scheduled for Jan. 6 in the primary cities of NewLeaf Travel’s route network: Winnipeg, Hamilton and Kelowna (all times local).
At Hamilton’s John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, at 11 a.m., there will be an announcement by NewLeaf Travel’s Chief Commercial Officer, Dean Dacko.
At Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport at 10 a.m. there will be an announcement by NewLeaf Travel CEO Jim Young. Young will also speak at Kelowna International Airport at 4 p.m.
