“The summer 2019 schedule focuses on realizing economies of scale,” said Steven Greenway, president of Swoop. “We have created a schedule that leverages our existing network while expanding to a limited number of strategic destinations.”
In addition to three new destinations of London, Ont., Kelowna, BC, and Oakland, CA, the airline’s new schedule includes five new domestic markets, two new transborder markets and an extension of two international routes.
The new domestic markets include service between London and Halifax six times per week and daily service from London to/from Abbotsford and Edmonton. Service between Kelowna and Winnipeg will be offered three times a week. The schedule also sees the return of the seasonal route between Abbotsford and Winnipeg four times per week.
Swoop explains Edmonton will have an increased transborder capacity with thrice-weekly flights to/from Oakland and a weekly flight to/from Orlando.
Internationally, Swoop will continue its Hamilton service to Montego Bay and Cancun, with a weekly return flight throughout the summer.
Amongst the routes that will end for the summer are Hamilton to Puerto Vallarta and Tampa Bay, and Abbotsford to Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán. Edmonton to Mesa will take a short hiatus, according to the company, and suspend service at the end of May before resuming October 5, 2019.
