TORONTO — Swoop is heading to sunny Kingston, Jamaica, with new nonstop service from Toronto starting this December.
As part of the airline’s winter schedule, the new service will operate twice weekly beginning Dec. 8, 2021 between Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Kingston Norman Manley International Airport (KIN).
To celebrate the launch, Swoop is offering a limited quantity of introductory one-way fares between Kingston and Toronto starting at $129 all-in. Travellers must book by Sept. 15, 2021 or while seats last, for travel between Oct. 2, 2021 and Jan. 18, 2022 (blackout dates between Dec. 11, 2021 and Jan. 6, 2022).
“We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in Jamaica with the introduction of service to Kingston to connect friends and families this holiday season and year ahead,” said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial & Finance, Swoop. “Our travellers have embraced our always affordable flights to Jamaica and we look forward to building on our success in the region with our new non-stop service connecting Toronto and Kingston.”
Angella Bennett, Regional Director, Canada for the Jamaica Tourist Board, said the organization is “thrilled” to see Swoop return to the destination with Montego Bay flights.
“Swoop is an important airline partner for us in the Ontario market and we truly value their continue support and confidence in the destination,” she said. “Whether you’re looking for sun and sand or a cultural city escape, Jamaica is ready to welcome customers for a safe and seamless getaway this fall and winter season.”
The ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC) resumed service on Sept. 11 between YYZ and Montego Bay Sangster International Airport (MBJ), marking the start of its international network restoration. Flights to the U.S. and Mexico are set to resume through the fall.
“The return of Swoop to MBJ is a welcome one and we are elated at Swoop’s commitment to ensure that passengers from our second largest market, Canada, and specifically the province of Ontario, have a low-cost option when visiting Jamaica to see family and friends or those who wish to vacation on our beautiful island,” said Shane Munroe, CEO of MBJ Airports Ltd. “We continue to prioritize the health and safety of our citizens and visitors in keeping with our mission of providing a “Safety-Assured” environment welcoming travellers safely to our island of Jamaica.”
