MONTREAL – A new discount airline in Canada is set to take off next month.
NewLeaf Travel announced today it will fly between seven airports in Canada starting Feb. 12.
They include Halifax, Hamilton, Regina, Saskatoon, the B.C. cities of Abbotsford and Kelowna, and Winnipeg, where the carrier is based.
The company is promoting one-way fares for as low as $89, but in exchange passengers will face charges for carry-on bags, seat selection, drinks and printed boarding passes.
NewLeaf Travel says its initial scheduling won’t see it fly daily as it plans to focus on leisure and vacation travel, but that could change if there is demand for it.
