After a turbulent start, Canada’s newest low-cost air service has taken off.
NewLeaf Travel is now offering flights Monday from 11 cities, including Halifax, Kelowna and Edmonton, with one-way fares as low as $79. The air service launched its inaugural flight with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Hamilton, Ont. on Monday.
Winnipeg-based NewLeaf attempted to launch in January, billing itself as a no-frills, ultra-low-cost alternative to airlines such as Air Canada and like WestJet.
