Low-fare carrier Swoop is adding a fourth Boeing 737-800 aircraft to its fleet and an increased weekly frequency schedule out of John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport in Hamilton, Ont. beginning Aug. 16.
The announcement comes less than two months after Swoop announced its initial schedule release on Feb. 1, with service starting from Abbotsford, Hamilton, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax, beginning June 20.
The addition of a fourth aircraft will increase weekly frequency almost two-fold for Hamilton-Edmonton and Hamilton-Abbotsford, while service from Hamilton to Halifax and Winnipeg will now be offered daily.
“We’re excited to get growing with the addition of our fourth aircraft,” said Swoop president Steven Greenway, who joined the company earlier this month. “The increased frequency schedule allows us to offer travellers even more opportunity and flexibility to explore Canada or visit family and friends during the peak summer season.”
Overall, the increase will see Swoop operating 59 weekly flights as of Aug. 16.
