On Aug. 2, 2018, Swoop became the first Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) to enter the U.S. market when it released its 2018/19 winter schedule with one-way sale fares starting as low as $99 including taxes and fees, through to April 27, 2019.
The schedule includes routes from Edmonton to Las Vegas and Mesa; Hamilton, Ont., to Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay; and Abbotsford, B.C., to Las Vegas.
“Our immediate success in Canada shows us travellers want more Swoop,” said Steven Greenway, president of Swoop. “Canadians have been waiting for ultra-low-cost fares into the U.S. for years and we are proud to be the airline to make it happen. There has been a lot of interest in our plans for the remaining three aircraft we receive this year and revealing this schedule today is a proud moment for the whole Swoop team.”
Swoop has been vocal about its intention to repatriate the estimated 5 million Canadians that drive across the border each year to take ULCC flights in the U.S., and this winter schedule is positioned to attract both cross-border travellers and price-sensitive sun-seekers.
Flights are available for booking from Oct. 11, 2018 to April 27, 2019.
To celebrate this important milestone, Swoop will be offering a web-only seat sale beginning on Aug. 2, 2018.
