Swoop’s fourth aircraft goes into service with YXX-YWG flight

CALGARY — Swoop is bringing its fourth aircraft into service with today’s launch of seasonal summer service between Abbotsford and Winnipeg.

The sold-out inaugural flight departs YXX today at 6 p.m. PST. Flights are offered daily until Labour Day. After Labour Day the service will switch to five times weekly until the end of the summer schedule on Oct. 27.

“We have received our fourth aircraft in perfect time to offer this daily service for end-of-summer vacations and to aid students who are relocating to attend post-secondary in the fall,” said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications at Swoop. “It’s a highlight for us to see the results of our low fares connecting friends and families in different provinces, such as on this sold-out flight today.”

The addition of the Abbotsford to Winnipeg route has doubled the weekly frequency schedule in Winnipeg, and added seven flights to the Abbotsford weekly frequency schedule.

Swoop’s domestic and international winter schedules have also been released with flights available for booking through to April 27, 2019. The international schedule includes the addition of routes from Edmonton to Las Vegas and Mesa; Hamilton to Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay; and Abbotsford to Las Vegas.
