Swoop announces ‘Trusted Travel Getaways’ with COVID-19 testing

Swoop has announced Trusted Travel Getaways: packaged vacations designed to enable Canadians to enjoy a warm-weather vacation with confidence this winter. This limited offering of vacation packages aims to provide travellers with enhanced peace of mind throughout their travel journey. Trusted Travel Getaways will operate to Montego Bay, Jamaica, departing from Toronto beginning December 19. 

Launched in partnership with IHG® Hotels & Resorts, travellers will be provided with  accommodation at the Holiday Inn Resort® Montego Bay All-Inclusive. As an added measure of comfort, travelers will receive complimentary access to mandatory pre-travel COVID-19 testing to ensure that all passengers on-board a departing Trusted Travel Getaway flight have proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

To reassure those on board a Trusted Travel Getaway flight, all travelers will be required to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test. Swoop has arranged for a leading Canadian laboratory service provider to administer the required testing at no additional cost to the traveller.

As per current regulations, travelers returning home must complete the ArriveCAN entry requirements and follow the Government of Canada’s mandated quarantine, regardless of the results of their pre-departure COVID-19 test.
