Swoop Takes Off In 2023

Swoop reports that it has reached a new milestone, transporting over 10,000 travellers in a single day for the first time in the company’s history.

Bob Cummings, President of Swoop, said: “We are incredibly proud of this accomplishment and grateful to our team of Swoopsters and all our travellers for helping us reach this milestone.”

Cummings continued: “This past year posed unprecedented challenges for the entire aviation industry, but our airline expanded to reach new heights, and so we’re thrilled to kick off 2023 with a signal of that growth.”

On Jan. 1, 2023, Swoop had its single largest travel day, operating 64 flights and connecting 10,268 travellers to friends, family and vacation destinations. The day saw the airline flying 37 flights across Canada, 14 to the U.S. and 13 to sun and fun cities across Mexico and the Caribbean.

Said Cummings: “This holiday season was undeniably the most difficult we have faced in nearly five years of service with the storms across British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. We sincerely thank all travellers for their patience and understanding as we recovered, and are proud to share that we have successfully operated 96.5% of scheduled flights since December 23rd when the cold weather and storms subsided.”

During the past year, Swoop has seen rapid growth, with significant network expansions into Abbotsford, Hamilton, London, Toronto, and across eastern Canada, supported by a fleet increase of 60%.
