The launch of the carrier’s winter 2020/21 schedule includes the return of service to Kelowna International Airport as well as flights to popular sunny destinations. In Sunday’s announcement, Swoop’s President, Charles Duncan, said,
“We are excited to be able to bring our ultra-low cost carrier model to Toronto and serve Canada's largest city. We know that Canadians are cautious about travelling, and with the significant health and safety measures we have put in place, travellers can rest assured that their safety is our top priority. In a challenging year like we are having, we want to help Canadians connect with family and friends or travel south safely this winter season, which is why we are proud to offer direct, non-stop flights, and Getaways all at an affordable price tag.”
Also commenting on Sunday’s announcement, Greater Toronto Airports Authority’s President and CEO, Deborah Flint, added,
“We're pleased to welcome Swoop to Toronto Pearson, offering yet another choice for our valued passengers. Toronto Pearson is committed to offering an enjoyable airport experience that is focused on health from curb to boarding and back again.”
Swoop’s winter schedule includes direct flights to Kelowna, Abbotsford, Halifax and Edmonton as well as sunny destinations such as Las Vegas, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Montego Bay and Cancun – all supported by Swoop Getaways flight plus hotel packages.
