Swoop announced a new domestic route providing direct service four times weekly between Edmonton International Airport and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport.
Service begins October 11, 2018 through to April 27, 2019.
“This is a welcome addition to our western base of Edmonton,” said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. “We are witnessing a positive response to our ultra-low-cost model in both Edmonton and Winnipeg. Connecting these two cities is a natural progression of our network strategy as we continue to stimulate more travel, more often for our savvy travellers.”
“This new flight will be an excellent option that enhances connectivity between two major western Canadian city-regions,” said Tom Ruth, EIA President and CEO. “Swoop is helping to connect travellers across Canada who are flying to, from or through the Edmonton Metro Region.”
“The new flights from Swoop are just the latest in the expansion of services at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport,” said Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority. “WAA’s growing partnership with Swoop is creating new opportunities to share our city and gives Manitobans more options to connect with family and friends.”
