“It will not make a big difference for my clients”: Agents react to Swoop rumours

Swoop to launch new nonstop flights from Hamilton to PUJ, FLL

HAMILTON — Swoop has expanded its winter sun program with new nonstop service from Hamilton to Fort Lauderdale and Punta Cana.

Service from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) to Fort Lauderdale begins on Dec. 16, 2022, with one-way fares starting at $109. Nonstop flights from YHM to Punta Cana kicks off Jan. 11, 2023, with one-way fares starting at $199.

The new flights come on the heels of increased frequencies on Swoop’s existing sun routes from Hamilton, including more weekly flights to Cancun, Las Vegas, Orlando and St. Pete-Clearwater. In addition, several summer routes to Atlantic Canada saw such strong performance that the airline has extended service to year-round. Swoop will continue to operate nonstop flights from Hamilton to Moncton, NB (YQM) and St. John’s, NL (YYT) throughout the winter.

“As summer comes to an end, residents of southern Ontario are turning their attention towards winter travel planning with their sights set on a sunny getaway,” said Meghan Miller, Hamilton-based Regional Sales Lead. “We know that Hamiltonians value the convenience of their local airport and so we’re thrilled to offer more choice of ultra-convenient and ultra-affordable flights to popular sun destinations for winter vacations.”
