Airline inaugurates new route between London, ON and Edmonton, AB

LONDON, ON - Today Swoop celebrates its first of three inaugural flights from the London International Airport (YXU), its newest destination. The flight departs from the London International Airport at 1:15 p.m. and arrives at the Edmonton International Airport (YEG) at 3:10 p.m.

Travellers at both airports will be welcomed to take part in a gate celebration that includes refreshments, sweet treats and gifts. They will also be treated with a water cannon salute upon arrival at their destination.

"Today's flights between London, ON and Edmonton are the kick-off to our summer schedule and the beginning of a very busy inaugural season," said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. "Over the course of the next two months we will be celebrating the launch of seven new markets and welcoming our seventh aircraft to the fleet. Each milestone further establishes our place as a top choice for travellers in the Canadian ULCC space."

""Today's inaugural flight to Edmonton marks the start of an exciting expansion to our Canadian network by Swoop" says Michael Seabrook, CEO and President of London International, " We are now the second focus city in Ontario for Swoop service, and among the first airports in Canada to offer true ultra-low cost flight options for passengers. We think these news flights will really catch on with travellers, and success with these flights means more destinations from Swoop in the future."

"We are very pleased to have this connection into Southwestern Ontario with the new daily, non-stop service to London," said Tom Ruth, President and CEO of Edmonton International Airport. "Destinations like London create excellent travel options for Edmontonians travelling to Ontario, while also supporting tourism and business growth in our region."
