I love this airline and their employees. However the baggage handlers between Edm and Cambridge Bay are horrible. I usually buy pop in the south because it's $2.25/can in Cambridge Bay and the airline ALWAYS manages to bust a few cans and make a mess. The 737-300 between YZF/YEG offers little leg room but there is lots of leg room...

A charter airline used by Newleaf Travel. The flight left on time and arrived earlier than scheduled. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The aircraft was clean and there was sufficient leg room. I had no trouble with regards to my checked baggage and carry-on. Since this is budget travel company everything is extra in cost and there is...

My wife and I flew from with New Leaf on Sat 8 oct. This is a new low cost Airline in the Canadian market. Flights are bare bones but prices are also bare bones. Hamilton to Victoria return for $540 for both of us. Let's hope this new company can service and keep prices low. Congrats to New Leaf for...

I enjoy flying with Canadian North, I try to fly as much as I can, except for the flight coming back had a bit of turbulence, overall the flight was excellent. I live in Fort Smith and when I want to go to Edmonton, I fly to Yellowknife in a 15 seat plane and I have to fly with them...

The flight was commissioned by Newleaf and we expected a Flare airline to take us as that is what NewLeaf deals with. We had a Canadian North Plane pick us up. It seemed like an old plane. As long as we got there we were happy. It had no tv which wasn't a huge deal on a two hour flight....

The are kind, they give you a paper to read, they feed you ... everything you want in an airline, they provide. I would whole hardheartedly recommend this airline to any traveler flying up to northern Canada.

Flying in the Arctic is always an experience, and Canadian North really know how to do it well. What can one say about the flight? One goes up, along and down ... unlike southern carriers there is service; a reasonable meal, wine and a "special" coffee .. and then we land. For me, it is the fun of flying a...

Hadn't flown on Canadian North sometime. When I lived in Yellowknife it was my preferred airline but this trip has changed my mind. Usually is on Northern flights you get a meal this time however nothing but snacks. We departed Rankin Inlet at 6 PM arrived in Edmonton Yellowknife at 7 PM local time that's a two hour flight and...

Canadian North flies out of Edmonton and, as the name implies, mostly serves the northern parts of Canada. However, in this case a Boeing 737 was chartered to Celebrity Cruises to deliver us to Lauderdale for a seven day cruise, and return us to Moncton when that was over. The seats were wide enough and had sufficient leg-room for football...
