NewLeaf Travel Company has announced new charter service from Canada to the East Valley. The service will allow Canadians to arrive in Arizona at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Beginning in January, NewLeaf will operate three nonstop flights per week from Calgary, and one nonstop flight per week from Edmonton starting on January 21.
NewLeaf Travel Company began flying in July 2016, in partnership with Flair Airlines. Travelers can book flights through NewLeaf, a privately-held Canadian company headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The flights are operated by Flair Air, a licensed Canadian airline with certified and experienced crews and pilots.
This service will provide additional opportunities for Canadians to visit the valley. According to the Arizona Office of Tourism, over one million Canadian residents visited Arizona in 2015, spending an estimated $1.1 billion during their visit here. In Maricopa County, Canadian residents account for more than 90 percent of internationally owned residential property.
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport’s main airline is Allegiant, which offers nonstop passenger service to 38 cities throughout the country and serves more than 1.3 million travelers each year.
