Swoop Takes Off To Cuba

Swoop has inaugurated service between Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport in Varadero, Cuba (VRA).

Bob Cummings, President of Swoop, said: “As Canada’s favourite sun and fun ultra-low-cost carrier, we are thrilled to celebrate our launch into Cuba. Varadero is widely known as a Canadian favourite for affordable beach vacations, and so we’re proud to provide Torontonians a new ultra-convenient, ultra-not-expensive option for travel to Playa Azul.”

Ontarians looking for a pre-packaged vacation to an all-inclusive beach resort will soon be able to access WestJet Vacations Packages with Swoop flights at

Along with the launch of flights to Varadero, Swoop also began new, non-stop service between Hamilton and Punta Cana.

This winter, Swoop will operate over 100 flights per week to 13 vacation destinations across the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.
