The company looking to bring charter air service between Calgary and Revelstoke won the Innovation Award from the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.

“Winning the Innovation Award is a real honour and a testament to the fact that when people are passionate about a business idea and support it with creativity and energy – anything is possible,” said Roger Jewett, the CEO of Jump On Fly Aways, in a news release. “I am pleased to be a part of a very talented team at Jump On that has taken this idea from the back of a napkin to a viable business in just a few months.”

Jump On offers charter flights on weekends to select destinations, but only flies if the enough seats are sold. The company was also nominated for Small Business of the Year.

Jean-Marc Laflamme, who handles the social-media marketing for the airline, recently made a presentation to the Revelstoke Airport committee on bringing Jump On flights into town.
