Swoop's Cummings says soaring fuel costs will drive up prices

Swoop announces start date at Toronto Pearson

CALGARY — Swoop will be resuming operations at Toronto Pearson Airport on Oct. 25 with a mix of both domestic and international routes.

Like all other airlines, the ultra-low-cost carrier was forced to ground all regular international and transborder flights in March due to the global pandemic, focusing instead on repatriating over 2,300 Canadian travellers.

Its new winter schedule, including the destinations and routes it will be serving, will be released in September. Hamilton will continue to be served as part of Swoop’s network.

“Travel is beginning to rebound and we want to help encourage Canadians to reconnect with family and friends or plan that long-awaited vacation,” says Charles Duncan, President. “With the robust health and safety measures we have put in place on each of our flights, travellers in Toronto will now have more affordable air travel options than ever before.”

Deborah Flint, President and CEO of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, says she welcomes Swoop’s decision to begin operations at Toronto Pearson. “The industry has changed significantly and we are focused on world-class health and safety measures that will ultimately reinvigorate travel at Pearson and throughout the region,” she adds.
