NewLeaf Travel Company today announces an expansion to its route map, with a new non-stop flight addition between Edmonton and Winnipeg.
The new service will run on Thursdays and Sundays beginning August 21, 2016.
“We are very happy to announce this new, economical route between the Manitoba and Alberta capital cities,” said NewLeaf Chief Executive Officer Jim Young.
“Canadians have responded exceptionally well to our direct flights between destinations, and we are pleased to expand this service.”
The new route expands NewLeaf Travel’s flight service out of Edmonton, which already runs direct flights from Edmonton to Hamilton, Kamloops and Abbotsford.
