Swoop has released its domestic winter schedule, with flights available for booking from 27OCT, 2018 to 27APR, 2019.
The extended schedule continues to serve Swoop’s five initial markets of Halifax, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Abbotsford. It includes daily service between YEG and YHM; YEG and YXX; and YHM and YXX. It will also fly between YHM and YHZ, and YHM and YWG, daily except for Saturday.
The newest Swoop route took was inaugurated early this morning, as WestJet’s ULCC subsidiary welcomed its third aircraft for the inaugural flight from Abbotsford International Airport to Edmonton International Airport. Service between the two cities will be offered 3X-daily.
In operation for just over a month, Swoop says it is enjoying steady bookings and full flights.
“Swoop has been endorsed by Canadian travellers in the way that matters most, they are buying seats,” said Michael Claeren, senior leader of revenue and pricing.
“With strong sales going into the fall and full aircraft throughout the summer, we are proud to offer non-stop ultra-low-cost flight options from coast-to-coast.”
