Swoop celebrates single-largest travel day on Jan. 1

Swoop lands in New York City for the first time on its fourth anniversary

CALGARY — Swoop commemorated its fourth anniversary yesterday in the best possible way – by inaugurating two brand new flights from Toronto Pearson.

Both departing June 20, flight WO370 arrived in Deer Lake, NL at 11:40 a.m. local time, while flight WO750 landed for the very first time in the Big Apple, at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport at 10:15 a.m. local time.

Since the airline’s first flight on June 20, 2018, Swoop has served over four million travellers to 33 destinations in five different countries, with a total of 52 routes currently operating. In total, in the past four years, over 28,000 flights have been operated.

“Swoop has expanded rapidly this year to meet the unprecedented demand for air travel that Canadians have missed out on for two long years,” said Bob Cummings, President of Swoop. “We are so thrilled to celebrate our fourth birthday across our newly expanded network with travellers and airport partners, and with a special celebration in America’s largest metropolis, New York City. With a young fleet of 16 Boeing 737 aircraft in service by the end of the summer, there is much more ultra-affordable travel to come.”

To commemorate its anniversary, Swoop held festivities at airports across Canada, with giveaways and special treats. The airline is also gifting Canadians with 40% off base fares with the promo code BDAYGIFS.

Added Cummings: “With thousands of Canadians boarding Swoop aircraft each day on their way to reconnect with friends and family, we’re proud to know that we’re enabling more travel than ever before, through ultra-convenience and ultra-affordable fares. Swoop’s success would not be possible without the support of Canadian travellers, airport partners and, of course, our people, our Swoopsters, who share in our mission of making air travel more accessible and affordable.”
