Jump On uncorks direct Calgary-Penticton flight

 Convenient & Direct Calgary-Penticton flight saves time & money!

 

Calgary, AB and Penticton, BC – “There is no direct flight between Calgary and Penticton,” explains Roger Jewett, CEO of Jump On Flyaways. “For Albertans, the lure of the Okanagan is magical year round. However, it’s difficult to get to Penticton and the South Okanagan for a weekend getaway. Travellers must fly to Vancouver and transfer to Penticton, adding 3-5 hours to their trip each way, fly to Kelowna and drive down, adding two hours plus each way, or take a week off work and drive.”

A Canadian-owned air service, Jump On contracts idle aircraft from charter airlines at discounted rates, schedules convenient weekend getaways and uses social media to create awareness of its flights.

Adds Jewett, “Our convenient and direct Calgary to Penticton weekend getaway flight allows Albertans a chance to experience Penticton & Wine Country more often and at a very reasonable price.”

“We are delighted with Jump On’s weekend getaway initiatives aimed at bringing Albertans to the south Okanagan through Penticton,” says Penticton MayorGarry Litke. “We have a lot to offer in this area from fabulous accommodations, to wineries, to great food and cultural and entertainment opportunities that include golfing, biking and boating. I believe that once Albertans fully experience the Pentiction area, they’ll be back for more!”

“Our package offer features a direct return flight from Calgary to Penticton, two night’s (double occupancy) accommodation at the Penticton Lakeside Resort plus an afternoon wine tour and tastings at three of the Naramata Bench’s fine wineries.”

“At Jump On, we are committed to solving the problem of high weekend airfares,” says Jewett. “Our convenient weekend getaway flights depart Friday evening and return Sunday evening for a great low fare. Unlike the big airlines, our low price is available for every seat on the plane. And to keep prices as low as possible, our flights depart only if we reach the Jumping Point, or a predetermined minimum number of passengers.”

“We have room for 76 passengers, and when we reach 60 confirmed passengers, our Calgary-Penticton return flight weekend getaway is a Go!”
