SWOOP EXPANDS WINTER SCHEDULE
New routes, more frequencies and new service to Cuba highlight Swoop’s expanded winter schedule. The low-cost carrier will begin its seasonal, non-stop service between Toronto (YYZ) and Varadero (VRA) on Jan. 11, 2023, as well an expanded network of flights to the Caribbean and Florida.
Highlights of the expanding winter schedule include the return of flights from London, Ont. (YXU) beginning Dec. 3 with non-stop service to Cancun (CUN) and to Orlando (Sanford) on Dec. 4. In addition, the ULCC will restart service to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (FLL) from both Toronto (YYZ) and Hamilton (YHM) on Dec. 8 and 9, respectively.
Swoop has also increased the frequency of flying on many existing routes, with daily flights from Toronto to Cancun and Las Vegas and near-daily flights to Montego Bay and Punta Cana
“We’re thrilled to be announcing an expansion in the Caribbean, adding Varadero to our growing list of vacation destinations,” said Swoop’s Tia McGrath. “Cuba tops the list for Ontarians seeking an affordable beach getaway and we’re proud to reaffirm our commitment to the region…”
Through Swoop Getaways, travellers can pair flights with thousands of hotel, resort, and vacation properties, unlocking hotel discounts. Those looking for a pre-packaged vacation can also add a Swoop flight to a WestJet vacation. Swoop has also partnered with wholesale tour operator The Special Travel Corporation for flight and stay packages.
Lessner Gomes, director of the Cuba Tourist Board in Canada, says, “We are thrilled to welcome Swoop flights to Cuba… which means more capacity to Cuba from Canada. In this price sensitive market, Swoop’s ultra-low-cost structure will make easier to Canadians this winter to enjoy beautiful Cuba.”
