“Everywhere I travel, I hear the same story–air travellers are sick and tired of being gouged with high airfares, particularly at peak times like weekends and holidays,” says Roger Jewett, CEO of Jump On Flyaways, a Calgary-based tour company.
“It wasn’t that long ago when you could easily get a Calgary-Vancouver return flight for between $200 and $300, including taxes. The lack of competition has caused that fare to keep going up to $400, $500 and even $600, especially on holidays and weekends,” adds Jewett.
“Jump On has found a way to bring low fares back to Canadians, be it on a weekday, weekend or holiday. For example, our September 20-22 weekend getaway to Vancouver is offered at a fantastic low price and at the best times to fully enjoy your weekend. Unlike the big airlines, our low price is also available for every seat on the plane. Check out our current offer at www.gojumpOn.com.”
A weekend ‘Jump’ to Vancouver is an opportunity for Albertans to get away and unwind or get active in a warmer climate that is just an hour’s flight away. One can relax and enjoy great food and entertainment just steps away from a downtown hotel or enjoy Vancouver’s vibrant outdoors with something for everyone from fishing and hiking to golf courses, or biking and running trails.
As with its successful previous weekend adventures to Las Vegas and Kelowna, Jump On must sell 80% of the 149 seats on its Boeing 737 before the flight is a GO.
