Swoop kicks off inaugural flight from Edmonton to San Diego

Swoop to fly nonstop from Toronto to Punta Cana this winter

TORONTO — Swoop is heading to sunny Punta Cana this winter, with new nonstop service from Toronto starting Dec. 5.

According to Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial & Finance, Swoop, the airline’s expansion into the Dominican Republic furthers its commitment to “bringing even more choice to Torontonians who are looking to vacation without paying the traditionally high cost of travel.”

Craig Bradbrook, Chief Operating Officer at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, added: This is an excellent option for Toronto Pearson passengers to access the Dominican Republic. We’re happy to support this nonstop route as Punta Cana is a popular destination for Canadians who are looking to escape this winter.”

To celebrate the new seasonal service, Swoop is offering a limited quantity of introductory one-way fares starting at $200, all in.

Flights from Toronto (YYZ) to Punta Cana (PUJ) will be offered twice weekly, with total one-way fares starting at $199.99, if booked by Oct. 15, 2022 (or while seats last), for travel between Dec. 5, 2021 and Feb. 16, 2022 (blackout dates from Dec. 17, 2021 to Jan. 4, 2022).

Punta Cana flights can also be paired with hotels and all-inclusive resorts when booking a Swoop Getaway. Powered by Expedia, Swoop Getaway packages are available anywhere Swoop flies, including from Toronto to Cancun, Montego Bay and now, Punta Cana.

In recent weeks, Swoop has announced several new flights and destinations as it continues to recover operations heading into the winter season. These include nonstop flights from Winnipeg to Orlando, the addition of Los Cabos from both Edmonton and Toronto, nonstops from Toronto to Kingston, Jamaica, as well as new service to San Diego, St. Pete-Clearwater and Orlando Sanford.
