GO Travel Launches Low Cost Transatlantic Flights Between Winnipeg and London (GB) Gatwick

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2009) -Canada's leading direct-sell tour operator, today announced the addition of low-cost, scheduled transatlantic air service from Winnipeg. Beginning June 12th through October 2nd, 2010, Manitobans can fly direct to London Gatwick with GO Travel Flights.

GO Travel Flights, in partnership with U.K. air carrier Astraeus, is selling flights aboard a Boeing 757 aircraft, including a hot meal for as low as $399 one way including taxes.

Go Travel sees London Gatwick as a gateway to Europe with extensive networks operated by many low-cost carriers. With fares from as low as $798 RETURN, the total price including onward travel aboard European carriers such as EasyJet or FlyBE, would be significantly less than any direct service to Europe from Canada.

GO Travel Flights are flexible, allowing travellers to fly out of one airport, and return to another, or to buy a one way ticket without incurring an extra supplement.

GO Travel fares are tax inclusive with NO additional fuel surcharges. Customers also have cancellation protection (available from as little as $50 per person). Go Travel Flights offer a price guarantee on all flights. If a customer finds an identical flight for less, the company will match that price.

United Kingdom residents can purchase Go Travel Flights to Winnipeg for as low as £235 one way including taxes via Jetaway2canada.com.

GO Travel Flights also operates transatlantic air service from Halifax and St John's to London Gatwick during the same time period with Monarch Airlines.
