Dis­count travel op­er­a­tor NewLeaf clears reg­u­la­tory run­way for flight sales


Dis­count air car­rier NewLeaf Travel will re­sume sell­ing low-cost seats in the next few weeks now that it has re­ceived the go-ahead from Ot­tawa to con­tinue op­er­a­tions. Chief ex­ec­u­tive Jim Young said Wed­nes­day that the com­pany ex­pects its first flight to take off by late spring or early sum­mer. In the mean­time, it will work on rein­tro­duc­ing it­self to con­sumers. “This is a sec­ond re­launch for the com­pany,” he said. “It's our op­por­tu­nity to make a sec­ond good im­pres­sion.” NewLeaf pur­chases seats from Kelowna, B.C.,-based Flair Air­lines and re­sells them to the pub­lic.
