(Winnipeg, MB – July 22, 2016) NewLeaf Travel is excited to announce the first flight from Hamilton, Ontario to Moncton, New Brunswick is sold out.

The flight will depart from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport on Friday, July 29th, arriving at Greater Moncton International Airport at 5:12pm. “We are excited to report that close to all our flights during the first week of operations are nearly sold out, but it was Hamilton to Moncton that was the first flight to completely sell out,” said NewLeaf President & CEO Jim Young.

“We are thrilled that NewLeaf’s first ‘sold out’ flight is from Hamilton to Moncton,” said Lauren Yaksich, Director, Marketing and Communications, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. “We believe there is a market for an Ultra Low Cost Carrier in Canada and that Hamilton International is strategically positioned for such a service; Hamilton International being the airport of NewLeaf’s first ‘sold out’ flight demonstrates the demand, from passengers who live in Hamilton and the surrounding region, for this type of service.”

“We are very excited to add NewLeaf as a new carrier from Greater Moncton to Hamilton and beyond. The first flight already being sold out shows just how much our community is embracing this new ultra low cost air travel option.” said Bernard LeBlanc, President and CEO of the Greater Moncton International Airport.
