Winnipeg to Phoenix service starts this weekend from Swoop

This weekend, Swoop, Canada's budget subsidiary of WestJet will take off with its inaugural flight to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA) from Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG) on Sunday, December 15 at 5:05 p.m. CST.

This is Swoop's first service to Arizona via Winnipeg, offering Manitoba travellers more options for warmer destinations this winter season. Swoop currently serves 13 North American destinations via Winnipeg through its year-round and seasonal operations, including two new routes to London and Victoria just released in the 2020 summer schedule with service beginning in April.

"Swoop is continually looking to grow and diversify our Winnipeg network offerings, providing our travellers with more options to escape to warmer climates," said Steven Greenway, President, Swoop. "In the past three months, we have celebrated the addition of several new routes from Winnipeg and look forward to continuing momentum, passing savings and great destinations on to our travellers."

The Greater Phoenix area offers Canadians a timeless Southwestern backdrop that is perfect for family vacations, weekend adventures or romantic getaways. Whether travellers are looking for a relaxing spa getaway, an active hike along mountain park trails, or a stroll through a variety of boutiques and fashionable malls, there is something for everyone.




"Our partnership with Swoop continues to grow, providing our community more direct, low-cost travel options to visit and experience sought-after destinations across North America," said Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority.  "These additional routes are helping further strengthen Winnipeg's connection to the world by opening the door for Winnipeg Richardson International Airport to welcome more travellers to Winnipeg. Swoop continues to be a valuable partner who recognizes Winnipeg's potential."

"We are thrilled to add Winnipeg as an additional destination on Swoop to and from the Greater Phoenix area," said Lt. Governor Robert Stone, chair of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. "More families can now choose the convenience and affordability of travelling through Gateway Airport on Swoop."

The new non-stop route will operate twice weekly bringing Canadians to the Phoenix / Mesa area to experience the Valley of the Sun at a price that works for them. Swoop's low price-point and unbundled model, with a base fare that starts with just the seat, makes travel more accessible for more Canadians, giving travellers the power to add the things they want, and nothing they don't.
