Jump On Flyaways gets uncorked in Kelowna May 16 -19
Package includes choice of three wine tours and Calgary - Kelowna return airfare
Calgary, Alberta & Kelowna, BC (May 01, 2013) – Following on the heels of its successful inaugural weekend getaway to Las Vegas, Jump On Flyaways has done a quick turnaround to offer its customers with an unbelievable opportunity to get Uncorked in Kelowna on May long weekend. The Canadian tour company that offers direct flights, peak times and one low fare has created a package that includes one of three wine tours and return airfare between Calgary and Kelowna for $249 (including $45 taxes, fees and charges).
“I’m tired of being gouged with high airfares at busy times,” says Roger Jewett, CEO of Jump On Flyaways. “Just look at airfares from Calgary to Kelowna over the May long weekend. The best price for a convenient Thursday to Monday getaway on Expedia is $596 (*), compared to only $323 the next weekend. That’s an 85% increase in price and $273 of extra profit per seat in the airline’s pocket.” (*Expedia, May 2, 2013)
“At Jump On we don’t gouge our customers,” adds Jewett. “We offer our ‘One Low Fare’ even at busy times.”
