Swoop, Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost airline reinforced its commitment to the Edmonton Metropolitan Region today by announcing new service from its Western Canadian base to one U.S. and eight domestic locations.
The introduction of Swoop’s newest aircraft, which will fly under the designation #Edmonton, was held this morning to commemorate the airline’s significant new investments.
Swoop’s flight capacity in Alberta’s capital will expand by 76 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels, resulting in the creation of 140 new direct and indirect employment and an estimated $120 million in economic output activities in 2022.
New non-stop flights to eight Canadian cities
Swoop’s summer schedule will include nonstop service from Edmonton to Charlottetown, Comox, Halifax, Kelowna, Moncton, Ottawa, Regina, and Saskatoon, as well as eight additional Canadian destinations. Swoop will be the first airline to offer nonstop travel from Edmonton International Airport to Charlottetown and Moncton, and the airline will also resume service to London, Ont., as part of its summer schedule.
Hello, Palm Springs!
Swoop’s transborder footprint will expand from Edmonton starting December 16 with the launch of additional service to Palm Springs. The nonstop service to Palm Springs will be offered twice a week.
Swoop celebrated the christening of its newest aircraft #Edmonton alongside key government leaders and business stakeholders at Edmonton International Airport to honor its history and commitment to Edmonton.
Following the incident, the Boeing 737-800 aircraft was put into service for the operation of flight WO 770, which departed Edmonton at 12:00 local time and was due to arrive in Phoenix (Mesa), Arizona at 3:30 PM local time.
