Swoop has celebrated the launch of air service in London, Ontario, with a new route between Edmonton and London International Airport.
The route between Edmonton International Airport and London International Airport is the first of three new routes launching in London, with service to Abbotsford, BC, and Halifax, NS beginning on 24 May 2019.
“The kick-off to our summer schedule and beginning of a very busy inaugural season starts with today’s flight between London, ON and Edmonton, AB,” said Steven Greenway, president of Swoop. “Over the course of the next two months we will be celebrating the launch of seven new routes and further establishing our place as a top choice for travellers in the Canadian ultra-low cost space.”
Michael Seabrook, CEO and president of London International Airport said the inaugural flight marked the beginning of an “exciting expansion to our Canadian network with Swoop” as the airport becomes the second focus city in Ontario for Swoop service. Seabrook added: “We expect these new flights will be popular with travellers, leading to the potential for 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.”
