Swoop has entered its fourth aircraft into service with the launch of a seasonal summer route between Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG). The sold-out inaugural flight departed YXX yesterday at 6:00 p.m PST.
Flights are offered daily until Labour Day, after which time they will be offered five times per week until the end of the summer schedule on 27OCT.
"We have received our fourth aircraft in perfect time to offer this daily service for end-of-summer vacations and to aid students who are relocating to attend post-secondary in the fall," said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications at Swoop. "It's a highlight for us to see the results of our low fares connecting friends and families in different provinces, such as on this sold-out flight today."
The addition of the Abbotsford to Winnipeg route has doubled the weekly frequency schedule in Winnipeg, and added 7 flights to the Abbotsford weekly frequency schedule.
