NewLeaf’s first flight out of Hamilton now sold out

WINNIPEG — NewLeaf Travel will celebrate its official launch with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 25. Taking place at John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, the ceremony will mark the company’s inaugural flight departing from Hamilton, and will be hosted by Dean Dacko, Chief Commercial Officer of NewLeaf Travel.

The buzz around NewLeaf has reached a fever pitch. The company has just announced that its first flight from Hamilton, Ontario to Moncton, New Brunswick is now sold out.

The flight will depart from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport on July 29, and arrive at Greater Moncton International Airport at 6:10 p.m.

According to NewLeaf President & CEO Jim Young, most of the company’s flights during its inaugural week are already full. “We are excited to report that close to all our flights during the first week of operations are nearly sold out, but it was Hamilton to Moncton that was the first flight to completely sell out,” he said.

As an ultra-low cost travel company, NewLeaf works with Flair Airlines to offer base fares that are significantly less than other Canadian carriers. NewLeaf Travel and Flair Air will board their first passengers on July 25, with flights leaving Hamilton, Winnipeg and Kelowna on that day.

“We know this is what Canadians want. We listened and are delivering the option of ultra-low-cost travel for them. The result is sold out planes,” added Young.

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