Looking for a low-budget way to travel? A brand new airline has recently opened that will be offering pretty cheap flights to cities within Canada—cheap meaning as low as $89 for a one-way flight (including taxes).
NewLeaf is the name of the airline, and seven cities are currently involved in the project: Abbotsford, Halifax, Hamilton, Kelowna, Regina, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg. In their effort to provide affordable prices to customers, the company is working with second-tier airports to save money on landing fees. Apparently NewLeaf has also withdrawn from advertising on third-party travel websites, which is another aspect that allows the airline to provide low fees.
The planes will be Boeing 737-400s, and fit up to 156 seats. The airline will also charge a $25 fee for carry-ons, however, items that fit under the seat in front are free-of-charge. The most expensive one-way flight offered will mark at around $149.
Unless you’re willing to camp-out in an airport for last-minute seat deals, travelling within Canada alone can be pretty pricey. For Canadians seeking to explore their home country, NewLeaf airlines could provide a feasible option.
