Swoop has announced major expansion in Edmonton, unveiling new service to one U.S. and eight domestic destinations. 

The airline's new investments were celebrated Monday morning (Nov. 15) alongside the unveiling of Swoop's newest aircraft, which will fly with the name #Edmonton.

The airline's growth will see Swoop's flight capacity in Alberta's capital increase 76 per cent compared to pre-pandemic levels, supporting the creation of 140 additional direct and spin-off jobs and an anticipated $120M of economic output activity in 2022.

"This is a major milestone for Swoop as we underscore our commitment to leading the way for ultra-low fare air travel in Canada and reaffirm our position as the airline with the most destinations from Edmonton," said Charles Duncan, president of Swoop. "With a strong focus on growth and Edmonton as our partner, we will continue to provide our travellers with more non-stop flights and ultra-low fares while supporting the recovery of Canada's travel and tourism economy."

Non-stop flights to 8 Canadian cities 

The addition of eight new Canadian destinations to Swoop's summer schedule will see non-stop service from Edmonton to Charlottetown, Comox, Halifax, Kelowna, Moncton, Ottawa, Regina and Saskatoon

Swoop will be the first carrier to bring non-stop connectivity from Edmonton International Airport to Charlottetown and Moncton and the airline's summer schedule will also see the restoration of service to London, Ont. 

Hello, Palm Springs!

Beginning Dec. 16, Swoop's transborder presence is growing from Edmonton with the addition of new service to Palm Springs

The scheduled non-stop service to Palm Springs will operate twice weekly.

#Edmonton

To commemorate its history and commitment to Edmonton, Swoop celebrated the naming of its newest aircraft #Edmonton alongside key government leaders and business stakeholders at Edmonton International Airport.

Following the event, the Boeing 737-800 aircraft entered service for the operation of flight WO 770 departing Edmonton at 12:00 local time, en route to Phoenix (Mesa), Arizona with a scheduled arrival of 3:30 PM local time. 

Edmontonians can expect to see #Edmonton operating several of Swoop's newly-announced routes.
