On Wednesday (August 31, 2022), Swoop announced the launch of new nonstop service between Toronto (YYZ) and Varadero (VRA) in Cuba from January 11, 2023, with one-way fares from $189. The carrier will also restart service to popular fun and sun destinations with flights between London, Ontario (YXU) to Cancun (CUN) from December 3rd and to Orlando-Sanford (SFB) from December 4, 2022.

“We're thrilled to be announcing an expansion in the Caribbean, adding Varadero to our growing list of vacation destinations. Cuba tops the list for Ontarians seeking an affordable beach getaway and we're proud to reaffirm our commitment to the region with more ultra-convenient and ultra-low fares. We know that choice and value are important to Canadians planning vacations," continued McGrath, "We have several options available for our ultra-not-expensive flights to be packaged with all-inclusive resorts or vacation properties.”

Swoop has also increased frequencies on many existing routes, including daily service from Toronto to Cancun and Las Vegas, and near-daily service to Montego Bay and Punta Cana.

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.
