Swoop reaches milestone achievement with two-millionth traveller

Canada´s ultra low-fare airline Swoop, a subsidiary of WestJet Airlines Ltd., has announced that it has carried two million travellers since its first flight took off in June 2018, the company said.

Since its launch, Swoop´s network has grown to serve 14 domestic, 10 transborder and four international markets, rapidly expanding the airline´s network across North America. The low-cost, unbundled model that Swoop has introduced to the Canadian air travel landscape, ensures fares remain ultra-low, with a base fare that starts with just the seat, giving travellers the power to add the things they want, and nothing they don´t.

Swoop independently operated as part of the WestJet Group of companies, offering point-to-point scheduled service to 20 destinations in Canada, the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. Swoop offers completely unbundled products and services, creating the unique opportunity for travellers to control their costs and customize their experience by purchasing only the extras they desire.

Swoop operates a modern fleet of nine Boeing 737-800 aircraft, equipped with in-seat power and Wi-Fi connectivity. Swoop´s mobile app allows travellers to quickly and easily book flights, manage bookings, check-in, view boarding passes, track flights and access Wi-Fi service in-flight.
