On Thursday (June 16, 2022), Swoop announced the expansion of their presence in Saskatchewan with connections from Regina to Edmonton and Winnipeg. Swoop flight WO582 from Edmonton International Airport (YEG) touched down at 08:00 local time Thursday morning at Regina International Airport (YQR) for the first time, before departing for Winnipeg. The carrier also started service to Saskatoon earlier this week and later this month will connect both Saskatchewan cities (Saskatoon and Regina) to Toronto.

In Thursday’s announcment, Swoop’s Head of Commercial and Finance, Bert van der Stege, said,

“We are thrilled to continue our summer network expansion here in Regina with two important inaugural flights. Today’s celebration reinforces Swoop’s commitment to enabling Canadians to travel more, and we’re proud to offer residents of Regina access to ultra-convenient and ultra-affordable flights to both Winnipeg and Edmonton.”

Also commenting on the new service to and from Saskatchewan, Regina Airport Authority’s President and CEO, James Bogusz, added,

“We are excited to welcome Swoop to YQR with Ultra Low-Cost air service to three major Canadian cities, Toronto, Edmonton and Winnipeg. All of Southern Saskatchewan will benefit from this additional air service capacity, which provides significant benefit to the local economy.”

Founded in 2018, Swoop is a subsidiary of the WestJet Group. The airline is Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) and operates a fleet of ten modern Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft with in-seat power and Wi-Fi. By summer 2022, the airline’s fleet will grow to 16 aircraft with the addition of six new Boeing 737-8 MAX jets. The Swoop business model offers low base fares which only include a seat, allowing guests to customize ancillary services to suit their personal needs and budget. The Canadian ULCC offers seasonal and year-round destinations in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.
