Winnipeg to London CANCELLED!

Crappy news for anyone who planned to travel non-stop between Winnipeg and London, England this summer using GoTravel. I had blogged about this opportunity back in December 2009 but now comes news that GoTravel is out of business, effective immediately. Here is the story from today's (Feb. 25) Winnipeg Free Press.

Winnipeggers who bought cheap tickets to London are out of luck after the low-cost tour operator GoTravel announced it is out of business.

GoTravel posted an announcement on their website informing customers they will cease operations "effective immediately" due to economic conditions. The company said the supplier of air charter services "will not be able to assist with getting any refunds" and encouraged patrons to contact their credit card provider directly.

The Canadian tour operator previously announced it will schedule cheap flights as low as $399 direct from Winnipeg to London Gatwick beginning June 12 through Oct. 2, 2010.

"We are extremely sorry that you will not be departing on your planned vacations," read a statement on GoTravel’s website.
