Updated: Jan 11, 2020
Swoop announced on Friday the continuation of their North American expansion with increased frequencies and three new destinations. The new routes include Victoria and Kamloops in Canada and San Diego in the U.S.
On Friday, WestJet’s ultra-low-cost subsidiary Swoop announced their Summer 2020 schedule with increased frequencies and new domestic Canadian service to Victoria and Kamloops as well as international service to San Diego, California. The rapidly growing startup carrier is also increasing summer season frequencies between Hamilton and Winnipeg, Edmonton and Abbotsford, and Abbotsford to Winnipeg. In Friday’s announcement, Swoop’s President, Steven Greenway said,
“In only 18 months, Swoop has experienced significant growth, and we are excited to continue this momentum with the release of our 2020 summer schedule. By introducing Swoop to more markets, we are achieving our mission of providing Canadians with accessible summer travel opportunities throughout North America.”
Launched in June of 2018, Swoop’s summer schedule has grown to 14 domestic, 10 transborder and four international destinations. The airline has filled a market niche in Canada for an ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) and is rapidly expanding across North America. With the additions and increased frequencies announced in the new summer schedule, the airline will operate up to 328 flights weekly. Swoop offers an unbundled product with ultra-low “seat only” fares, giving customers the power to decide whether they want to purchase additional products and services. Canada’s leading domestic, transborder and international ULCC, Swoop operates fuel-efficient next generation Boeing 737-800s.
