CALGARY — For the peak summer season, Swoop is adding a new domestic regional route – Winnipeg-Abbotsford – beginning Aug. 16 and currently available for purchase.
The news comes hot on the heels of Swoop’s recent announcement of a fourth aircraft being added for the summer. This new route will double the weekly frequency schedule in Winnipeg, and add seven flights to the Abbotsford weekly frequency schedule.
“At Swoop our mission is to get more Canadians travelling by making air travel more accessible and affordable for all Canadians,” said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. “We’ve been seeing strong sales and traveller demand in both Winnipeg and Abbotsford since the Swoop booking launch on Feb. 1. And we’re thrilled to be adding this route to offer a lower-cost option for travellers to get out and explore, visit family and friends and make some memories this summer.”
Swoop service officially kicks off on June 20, 2018, with an initial network that includes Abbotsford, Hamilton, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax. With the addition of the new Winnipeg-Abbotsford route, the airline will be operating 66 weekly flights as of Aug. 16.
Starting today, Swoop is celebrating the latest route announcement with a system-wide seat sale that includes one-way prices starting at $38 if booked by April 24 for travel between June 20-27 and/or Aug. 16-Dec. 13, 2018. For more information go to FlySwoop.com.
