Swoop seeks airport partners in North, Central America, Caribbean to stimulate travel

Canadian ultra low-cost carrier Swoop has announced it is seeking strategic airport partners in North and Central America and the Caribbean to collaborate in stimulating travel and supporting economic recovery, the company said.

Swoop has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) and is interested in hearing from airports that share an entrepreneurial, consumer-driven mindset and understand providing value to travellers through fair fares, which creates demand as well as the importance of travel and tourism in stimulating economic recovery.

Swoop, which operated its first flights on June 20, 2018, remains confident in the long-term prospects for its business model and future growth.

Swoop´s Airport RFP process is being managed through the Route Exchange RFP feature available to Routes Online members.

Swoop is independently operated as part of the WestJet Group of companies, offering scheduled service to destinations in Canada, the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. 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.
