Swoop to add nine new routes to Edmonton next summer

EDMONTON — Swoop is ramping up service Alberta’s capital, with eight new domestic routes and one new nonstop from the United States.

As part of its summer 2022 schedule, the ultra-low-cost carrier will launch nonstop service from Edmonton to Charlottetown, Comox, Halifax, Kelowna, Moncton, Ottawa, Regina and Saskatoon. The summer schedule will also see the restoration of service to London, Ont.

This will make Swoop the first carrier to bring nonstop connectivity from Edmonton International Airport to Charlottetown and Moncton.

As for its transborder presence, beginning Dec. 16, Swoop will launch new twice weekly service to Palm Springs.

The new domestic and U.S. routes, which were celebrated on Nov. 15 and the unveiling of Swoop’s newest aircraft, mark the airline’s largest expansion ever. Flight capacity in Edmonton will increase 76% compared to pre-pandemic levels, which will create 140 additional direct and spin-off jobs and an anticipated $120 million in economic output activity next year.
