“Today’s announcement by NewLeaf introduces a new segment of service into the Canadian market and is a game-changer for regional airports like Hamilton International,” said Frank Scremin, President & CEO, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. “Low-cost service will stimulate air travel demand, and create new choices for Hamilton International passengers.”

Hamilton International is situated approximately 60 minutes’ drive from both Toronto and Niagara Falls, providing easy access to two of Ontario’s primary tourist destinations, as well as direct access to one of the largest population bases in the country.
