(Surrey, BC) Today at the Surrey Board of Trade, the New Leaf Travel Company announced a new enterprise connecting Surrey to Halifax, and many destinations in-between.  Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner and Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun spoke at the press conference with New Leaf President & CEO, Jim Young.

NewLeaf is offering an additional, affordable option for people to get from here to there economically, efficiently and easily. Customers arriving and departing from Abbotsford International Airport will now have the opportunity to purchase ground transportation to Surrey. The option will be available through the website by either booking ahead and purchasing it just as they would a flight or purchasing-on-board through Flight Attendants.

“We have been providing the lowest air travel options in Canada for just over three months and each day our team is committed to find ways for customers to travel at an affordable price. Offering ground transportation, from Abbotsford International Airport to a designated NewLeaf bus stop at the Surrey Central Station is the first in many more announcements such as this across Canada,” stated NewLeaf President & CEO, Jim Young.

NewLeaf with its partner Flair Airlines flies to and from Abbotsford to destinations like Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton and Halifax for prices as low as $19. These extreme low prices are making travel possible for everyone. Now, customers will be given another option of booking their ticket from Halifax to Surrey using the ground transportation connection.

The designated coach bus operated by Wilson Transport Company will pick up and drop off passengers from the bus stop where it is convenient to access the SkyTrain into Vancouver.

“Residents of the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver deserve transportation options. Today’s announcement will allow for more connectivity and provide residents more modems of transportation,” stated Parm Sidhu, Airport General Manager, Abbotsford International Airport.
