Swoop lands in Mazatlán with first flight of the season

After an 18-month pause due to the pandemic, the airline departed Edmonton on Oct. 23 and landed at Mazatlán’s International Airport to a water salute with 189 passengers onboard.

“Canadians are always welcome in Mazatlán and it’s the second home for thousands of them. The value of the destination and the wide array of activities and attractions are unmatched,” said Oscar Perez, Secretary of Tourism for the state.

Swoop’s Boeing 737-800 will continue to fly from Edmonton to the Mexican destination for the remainder of the year, doubling frequency at the start of 2022 until the end of the season in late April.

Throughout the pandemic, Mazatlán invested heavily in its tourist infrastructure and various improvements, including renovating its tourist zone and introducing new attractions like the Sea of Cortez Aquarium.
