While travel advisories have been lifted, the Government of Canada says transmission of COVID-19 continues in many countries. The federal government advises that you should be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before travelling. Follow any local public health measures while travelling, and check Canada’s travel requirements prior to departure. At this time, Canada advises to avoid all cruise ship travel abroad.
Swoop has launched three new non-stop flights to sunny destinations so you can escape the Canadian winter weather.
Beginning this week, the low-cost airline has introduced trips to Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. Flights from Toronto to Los Cabos, Mexico and Toronto to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic will be once a week. Flights from Toronto to Kingston, Jamaica will run twice weekly.
“The launch of these three new routes demonstrates that Swoop’s accessible and affordable fares have caught on in Toronto and highlights the demand we are seeing for ultra-low fare travel across Canada,” Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial and Finance at Swoop, said in a statement.
