At the recent Future Travel Experience Global event in Las Vegas, anna.aero spoke with Charles Duncan, President of Swoop, about the ultra-low-cost carrier’s vision for the future of travel.
“For us at Swoop, we are getting back on the front foot now post-pandemic and planning for a lot of growth,” Duncan explained.
“We started the pandemic with nine 737-800 NG aircraft and recently added our 10th. Our ambition is to have 16 aircraft for the coming summer, and ultimately grow to 30, so the excitement for our whole team at Swoop is that after an almost two-year pause we can now get on the front foot and focused on growth.”
Swoop focuses on “fair rates,” according to Duncan, who claims that more than half of the tickets sold in the company’s three-and-a-half years of business were CAD$100 or less. “It’s all about exceptional pricing and linking leisure travelers with family or sun destinations,” says the executive.
