Swoop identifies Toronto, Edmonton and Halifax as their essential and most popular destinations in recent days.
We are incredibly proud of this accomplishment and grateful to our team of Swoopsters and all our travellers for helping us reach this milestone, this past year posed unprecedented challenges for the entire aviation industry, but our airline expanded to reach new heights, and so we’re thrilled to kick off 2023 with a signal of that growthBob Cummings, President of Swoop

Expansion to new cities and adding services to current destinations will be hot on the airline’s list. It comes as they attempt to continue to be an attractive option for Canadians.
