Update: New Infomation has come out regarding New Leaf Airlines.
Check out the notice on the New Leaf website.
We all know travel within Canada is almost obscene. Whenever I have to travel anywhere in the country I often notice that it would be cheaper to go on an all-inclusive vacation in Mexico, then visit relatives in Edmonton.
Lucky for cheapskates like me and my fellow Canadians, we will now have a new option for cheaper air travel. According to the CBC, New Leaf Airlines* is ready to enter the Canadian market and will offer “ultra-low-cost” airfare and will service Canada’s underserved areas next to big metropolis’ with bases in Hamilton, Kelowna and Winnipeg.
According to the CBC you can take flight out of seven Canadian cities for as little as $89.00 CAD for a one-way flight, with the highest priced ticket capping out at $149.00 CAD.
The only downside is that if you want anything extra like bringing a bag, food or an aisle seat it’s going to cost you.
The $89 pretty much only guarantees you a one-way seat.
As of February 12 2016, flights are available from seven Canadian airports:
- Abbotsford, B.C.
- Hamilton, Ont.
- Kelowna, B.C.
