Jun 16 2021, 8:36 am

Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost carrier, Swoop, has added three new US sun destinations to its flight network.

Non-stop flights to San Diego, St. Pete-Clearwater, and Orlando Sanford are slated to begin this winter.

Swoop’s new additions come as the airline prepares to celebrate its third anniversary of flying the skies. Since introducing the budget carrier air travel mode to Canada in June 2018, the airline has served three million travellers.

Swoop says it continues to see demand as provincial vaccinations and phased reopening pans progress across the country.

“Swoop is celebrating three years of bringing ultra-low fares to Canadians, and we are thrilled to continue expanding on our success with the introduction of San Diego, Orlando Sanford and St. Pete-Clearwater to our network,” said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial & Finance, Swoop. “We are pleased to be providing our travellers looking to explore the US this winter with even more choice and affordable options.”

Here are some additional details about each of Swoop’s new sun destinations.
