A 4th country in 6 months

The Puerto Vallarta International Airport and tourism partners are welcoming the arrival of the first Swoop aircraft and its travellers with a water arch, refreshments, gift bags and a lively mariachi band.

“Not only are we celebrating Swoop’s entry into its fourth country in under six months of operation, but also a brand-new route for the Hamilton airport," said Karen McIsaac, senior advisor of communications at Swoop. “Swoop continues to write a progressive narrative in the history of Canadian air travel, benefitting the thousands of Canadians that choose to fly with us every day and influencing growth in the tourism industry.”
