Swoop, Canada's first true ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC), announced its entrance into the U.S. market with five new international flight routes available for purchase through April 27, 2019.
The 2018/19 winter schedule includes routes from Mesa (Phoenix) to Edmonton; Las Vegas to Hamilton (near Toronto), Edmonton and Abbotsford (near Vancouver); and Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay to Hamilton.
Tickets are now available at FlySwoop.com.
"Swoop's success in the Canadian ULCC space combined with the evident success of ULCCs in the U.S. affirms that North American travelers are ready for an airline to open up the border to ultra-low-cost air travel," said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. "There has been a lot of interest in our plans for the remaining three aircraft we receive this year and revealing this schedule today is a proud moment for the whole Swoop team."
Swoop started Canadian operations on June 20, 2018 as a subsidiary of WestJet, Canada's second largest airline. Swoop operates a modern fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats and is the first ULCC in North America to offer in-seat power, Wi-Fi, and TV/movie streaming. The airline will have six aircraft in operation by the end of 2018, with four more expected in 2019.
Flights are available for booking from October 11, 2018 to April 27, 2019.
