Swoop has announced Montego Bay, Jamaica as its first Caribbean sun-destination.
Twice weekly service from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) to Sangster International Airport (MBJ) begins 16DEC, 2018 and runs through to 24APR, 2019.
"The addition of Montego Bay to our network is another important milestone," said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. "Many Canadians of Jamaican origin live in the Toronto area, which makes this new route ideal for connecting friends, family and loved ones, as does the vacation appeal of replacing ten feet of snow with ten miles of white sand beaches this winter."
"We are very excited to see Swoop continue to grow and expand its route offerings," said Cathie Puckering, President & CEO, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. "Swoop began operation in June with domestic service, before adding U.S. destinations beginning this fall and further adding Caribbean service which will begin in December. We are proud to partner with Swoop and look forward to bringing our customers more services and destination offerings."
Swoop is the first Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier to provide sun-service from Canada to the U.S. and Caribbean, with the addition of Montego Bay complementing the five U.S destinations that were announced with the winter schedule release.
