New Leaf Launching In July

Friday, June 24, 2016 @ 5:57 AM

Prince George, B.C. – NewLeaf  Travel,  a no frills passenger carrier,  will officially  launch its first flights  July 25th,  and while there are 12 Canadian cities on its  schedule, Prince George is not one of them.

NewLeaf will operate  flights to and from 5 B.C. airports,  Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna, Fort St. John  and  Victoria.  The other  seven Canadian cities are:  Halifax, Moncton, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon and Edmonton.

Flights are booked directly through New Leaf,  and the  airline says  passengers can “customize”  their  journey  by  adding  thinks like on flight beverages,  seat selection,  and carry on baggage, each option will  increase  a passenger’s ticket price.

Initially, New Leaf had planned to have its first flights off the ground in February, but ran up against Transport Canada  over its business model.   Transport Canada has now given the green light  and the flights are set to  take off on July 25th.




When I first spotted the heading for this story “New Leaf Launching in July”, my first and immediate thought was:

“OMG, did those clowns running City Hall lease another Leaf?”, haha!

I don’t think we mist much this time..

Glad Im not the only one! My first thought was “you gotta be sh**in me!” hahaha
