Based in Calgary, Swoop launched Canadian operations on June 20 of this year and operates a modern fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats each. The ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) is the first in North America to offer in-seat power, Wi-Fi and TV/movie streaming.
“Swoop’s success in the Canadian ULCC space combined with the evident success of ULCCs in the U.S. affirms that North American travellers are ready for an airline to open up the border to ultra-low-cost air travel,” Swoop president Steven Greenway said in a statement. “There has been a lot of interest in our plans for the remaining three aircraft we receive this year and revealing this schedule today is a proud moment for the whole Swoop team.”
