Swoop Adds Boeing 737-800NG to Fleet, Expands Winter 2021/2022 Schedule
Canadian ULCC Swoop will add their 10th Boeing 737-800 NG this winter and expand their schedule with increased domestic flying and the resumption of service to the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.
On Thursday (June 10, 2021), Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) Swoop announced a fleet expansion as well as increased nonstop domestic and international flying for winter 2021/22. The airline will add their 10th Boeing 737-800NG, increase nonstop domestic service in Canada and resume flights to the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. Swoop is the first Canadian airline to reintroduce their entire fleet to service and will operate all nine aircraft domestically during the peak summer period. For winter, the carrier will offer service to sunny destinations including Montego Bay, Jamaica, Las Vegas and Phoenix, as well as Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán in Mexico.
In Thursday’s announcement, Swoop’s President, Charles Duncan, said,
“We’ve seen a significant increase in demand for travel this summer, most especially in provinces where vaccination and re-opening plans are on track and clearly outlined. With the release of our winter schedule, those who are planning further ahead or dreaming of a vacation abroad can find our always affordable flights and Getaway packages available for booking through April 2022. Consumer confidence is coming back, and the message is clear, Canadians are ready to start planning that long overdue trip. When travellers are ready, we look forward to safely welcoming them back onboard our aircraft.”
Swoop will offer scheduled service to 14 destinations for winter with one-way fares starting at only $40. The addition of the 10th aircraft to the fleet will allow Swoop to add new routes, destinations and frequencies as demand continues to recover.
