Swoop celebrates single-largest travel day on Jan. 1

Swoop launches daily service from Hamilton to St. John’s

JOHN’S, NL — St. John’s, Newfoundland has welcomed its first-ever ultra-low-cost flight, courtesy of Swoop.

The airline launched its inaugural flight from Hamilton’s John C. Munro International Airport (YHM) to St. John’s International Airport (YYT) on June 3, reinforcing its commitment to travel and tourism in Atlantic Canada and across Canada.

“We are pleased to continue our Atlantic expansion today with our inaugural flight from St. John’s to Hamilton,” said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial and Finance, Swoop. “Affordable air travel is critical to the recovery of Newfoundland’s tourism economy and we’re proud to support the province’s Come Home 2022 campaign with ultra-convenient, ultra-low fares for Canadians.”

Andrew Furey, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, also extended his congratulations to the ultra-low-cost-carrier: “It is wonderful to see another flight option for people travelling to and from our beautiful province. Our province is a bucket-list destination for many, with strong demand for air travel. I have no doubt that you will be pleased with the response to your service.”

Introductory fares from St. John’s to Hamilton start at $99. Service runs daily.

The inaugural service comes on the heels of additional flights to and from all four Atlantic Canadian provinces. Earlier this summer, Swoop introduced nonstop connectivity between Deer Lake and Hamilton, and later this month will also add nonstop service from Deer Lake to Toronto.
