Swoop takes off with recovery strategy and the start of operations at Toronto Pearson Airport

Swoop has made this announcement:

As part of its continued recovery plans, Swoop is announcing the start of operations at Toronto Pearson Airport beginning on October 25, 2020. As Canada’s leading ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC), Swoop is well-positioned to serve price-sensitive travellers while stimulating demand in Canada’s largest market.

Swoop’s service at Toronto Pearson Airport will include a mix of domestic and international routes. The winter schedule outlining the destinations and routes will be released in September.

Since the start of the pandemic, Swoop continues to deliver on its mission of providing accessible and affordable air travel. The airline helped to connect Canadians from coast to coast with essential travel at affordable airfares. Today’s announcement builds off those early recovery plans to remain Canada’s ultra-low cost carrier of choice. Swoop will continue to serve Hamilton as part of its network.

As part of the WestJet Group, Swoop has proven the ULCC model to be successful. The airline has welcomed 2.5 million travellers in its two years of operations, who have saved $159 million in direct fare savings in 2019, according to a recent economic impact study. These investments by Swoop have lowered fares and increased choice and competition within the marketplace.*
