Swoop has introduced a mobile app in preparation for its first flights, taking off June 20.
With a mission to make travel easy, affordable and accessible for Canadians, officials say offering travellers the convenience of a mobile app was a must-have for the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC).
The app is available for iOS 10 or newer, and Android 5 or newer, and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
“We live in an increasingly digital world, so providing our travellers with a mobile app to make the travel experience more convenient was paramount for Swoop,” said Steven Greenway, president and chief executive officer of Swoop. “The app also allows us to offer inflight entertainment and WiFi connectivity through Swoop Stream, and that’s a key differentiator for a ULCC.”
The initial version of the app hosts a suite of functional features to make the Swoop travel experience seamless. Travellers can expect to see regular app updates as new functions and features are released.
In addition to being able to access for-purchase WiFi and entertainment amenities, the Swoop app allows travellers to quickly and easily book flights, manage bookings, check in, view boarding passes and track flights.
A “my trips” feature gives users important information about upcoming trips. With the tap of a finger, users can view their itinerary, manage their flight or retrieve their boarding pass.
The “flight tracker” feature gives real-time updates on any Swoop flight. Users can check on flight status to see if a flight is on time, early, delayed or cancelled.
