NewLeaf to take off on July 25
June 23 (TravelAndy): Canadian low-cost carrier, NewLeaf today announced to start operations from July 25.
“Today, I am happy to announce that we are one again, as a re-seller of airline seats, are accepting customer bookings, and that we will be taking to the skies on July 25,” the company’s CEO Jim Young said at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport today.
Young added that the company has also added five more destinations to it’s originally planned seven.
The places NewLeaf will fly now are Abbotsford-Vancouver, Edmonton, Fort St John, Halifax, Hamilton-Toronto, Kamloops, Kelowna, Moncton, Regina, Saskatoon, Victoria and Winnipeg.
Introductory ticket prices start from CAD79 including taxes and these fares would be available for limited seats for travel between July 25 and October 25, Young said.
The airline was supposed to start operations much earlier but had to suspend its plan following a licence issue raised by Canadian Transportation Agency earlier in the year.
Replying to a question on refunds in the event of another unforeseen incident like last time, Young said they did have a refund policy in place.
