Swoop is coming to New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Nashville

Swoop, Canada’s leading ultra-low fare airline, today announced it will expand its presence in the United States (U.S.) by adding nonstop flights to five new destinations this summer: New YorkChicagoNashvilleSan Francisco, and Los Angeles.

In addition to serving five new destinations, the fast-growing Canadian airline will also extend its current seasonal services to San DiegoPalm SpringsLas Vegas, St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Sanford and Mesa into the summer season. In total Swoop will serve 11 U.S. destinations with ultra-not-expensive flights from its three main Canadian bases in TorontoHamilton, and Edmonton.

Demand for transborder travel amid restrictive testing requirements

Swoop’s announced U.S. expansion comes as the ULCC reports significantly increased domestic passenger numbers and record bookings, on par with pre-pandemic demand. The airline expects to see that pent-up demand trend extend to U.S. leisure travel this summer as more than 30.5 million fully vaccinated Canadians look to resume their transborder travel habits.

As countries across the globe take measures to safely re-open borders for vaccinated travellers and make sensible adjustments to overall travel guidance and testing requirements, the ULCC expects to see Canadian requirements updated by March 1, when current government measures are set to expire.

The ULCC continues to call on government to outline a re-opening timeline and roadmap for travel recovery that is based on science and reflective of the current realities of the COVID-19 pandemic.
