MIAMI – Swoop (WO), the Ultra Low-Cost Carrier (ULCC) arm of Canada’s WestJet Group (WS), has published its new winter schedule and announced a fleet expansion to meet the growing domestic and leisure travel demand.
With the new winter schedule, WO is expanding its domestic services and plans to resume flights to the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean where booking demand is reaching pre-Covid levels. To be able to sustain the new program, WO is expanding its fleet and adding one more, the tenth, Boeing 737-800NG.
Swoop is the first Canadian airline to re-start operations for its entire fleet of nine Boeing 737-800 and is expecting to operate it on domestic services during the summer peak season. During winter WO’s fleet, besides being deployed to offer ULCC domestic flights, will also ensure services to “sun and fun” destinations.
These will include Jamaica’s Montego Bay (MBJ), US Las Vegas (LAS), and Mesa-Phoenix (AZA), along with Mexico’s Puerto Vallarta (PVR); Cancun (CUN), and Mazatlan (MZT).
“We’ve seen a significant increase in demand for travel this summer, most especially in provinces where vaccination and re-opening plans are on track and clearly outlined,” commented WO CEO, Charles Duncan. He added that there would always be a WO flight available for booking for those already dreaming of a sunny vacation.
