Swoop introduces a new route and its 4th aircraft

The WestJet ultra-low-cost airline, Swoop entered its fourth aircraft into service this week with the launch of a seasonal summer route between Abbotsford International Airport and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. 

The route will be served on a daily basis until the Labour Day holiday and then it will reduce to five times a week until the end of the summer season.  “We have received our fourth aircraft in perfect time to offer this daily service for end-of-summer vacations and to aid students who are relocating to attend post-secondary in the fall,” said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications at Swoop. “It’s a highlight for us to see the results of our low fares connecting friends and families in different provinces, such as on this sold-out flight today.”

“The Abbotsford International Airport continues to expand flight options for passengers in our region,” said Mayor Henry Braun. “I’m pleased by the launch of Swoop’s summer service to Winnipeg and welcome more travellers to Abbotsford.”
