HALIFAX — Swoop has ramped up its presence in the Atlantic with new service from Halifax to Ottawa.

Launched yesterday, June 19, flight WO580 departed from Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) at 4:55 p.m. local time for Ottawa International Airport 9YOW). Service runs daily, with introductory fares starting at $59.

“As Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost airline, we are thrilled to be adding more connectivity for residents of Halifax as part of our summer network expansion,” said Shane Workman, Head of Flight Operations, Swoop. “The remarkable growth the Canadian tourism sector has experienced relies on convenient and affordable air service, and we’re proud to be supporting the Halifax community with more ultra-not-expensive fares.”
