Today, Swoop, Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost airline, is setting its sights south with newly added flights to Mexico and the Caribbean from Hamilton, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Abbotsford.
As Canadians plan to take winter vacations, according to Statistics Canada airfares are getting pricier, up more than 20 per cent in April 2022 compared to pre-pandemic April 2019. Over a three month period, from February to April of this year, airfares jumped by 13 per cent. Economist Hayley Berg blames the hikes on higher demand and soaring oil prices.
The ultra-not-expensive airline recently completed a significant fleet expansion, inducting six new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to meet demand for ultra-low-cost leisure travel. Beginning in January, Swoop will restart service from Hamilton to Montego Bay. The ULCC will also add new frequencies to popular published routes from Hamilton to Punta Cana, Toronto to Cancun, Winnipeg to Puerto Vallarta, Edmonton to Mazatlán, as well as Abbotsford to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta.
Canadians can unlock exclusive discounts at all-inclusive resorts when they book their ultra-not-expensive flight as part of a Swoop Getaway*. For added convenience, Swoop flights to warm and sunny destinations are also available through WestJet Vacations.
In November, Swoop announced it had inducted six new 737 MAX 8 Aircraft. The carrier celebrated the completion of its 2022 fleet expansion as part of the WestJet Group’s strategic path forward.
With a one-way, all-in price to sunny escapes starting at just $159 CAD, Swoop outlined how affordable a vacation can be this winter when traveling with the new carrier.
