A new low-cost airline is flying direct from Abbotsford International Airport to Winnipeg and Saskatoon starting this February.

NewLeaf Travel Company will offer two weekly flights to Saskatoon, and one to Winnipeg, beginning on Feb. 12. All flights will connect to Hamilton, Ontario.

Introductory one-way fares will start at $89.

“With our growing population, both locally and regionally, it’s great to see more flight options being offered out of Abbotsford,” said Mayor Henry Braun.

Flights will be on a Boeing 737-400 plane with 156 seats. NewLeaf’s flights are provided by Flair Airlines, a Canadian charter airline founded in 2003. By March, NewLeaf’s flight schedules will change and more flights will be added.
