Low-cost carrier Swoop has launched its initial schedule release with service starting from Abbotsford, Hamilton, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax.
“Swoop is travel without the flair,” says Bob Cummings, WestJet executive vice-president, Strategy, and the executive member responsible for the launch of Swoop. “Buy the seat and customize the features you want. Why would you jet with anyone else? Canadians can book with us knowing that we have modern aircraft, strong financial backing and an experienced team that will get you there and back. All at fares that won’t break the bank.”
Starting June 20, the airline will launch six weekly flights between Abbotsford and Hamilton and six weekly flights between Hamilton and Halifax. On June 25, Swoop will start six weekly flights between Hamilton and Edmonton and between Hamilton and Winnipeg.
Swoop’s service between Abbotsford and Edmonton will start July 25 and will operate three times daily. Overall, the airline will have 45 weekly flights – 24 weekly flights from Hamilton and 27 from Abbotsford.
Routes will operate on Swoop’s fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats.
