What you need to know about Canada's new low-cost carrier: Swoop Airlines
On Wednesday 20th June, Canada’s newest ultra-low cost airline saw its first flight departure.
Swoop is a no-frills airline launched by WestJet and carried an inaugural group of travellers on Wednesday morning from Hamilton, Ont. - Abbotsford, B.C.
The airline hopes to offer Canadians something that travellers in Europe, the U.S. and parts of Asia have long enjoyed: cheap flights that cut add-ons to reduce the base price of a ticket.
The airline will operate domestic flights between 5 small Canadians airports: Abbotsford, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton, and Halifax.
Swoop hopes to win back travellers who live near the Canada-U.S. border and may opt to catch low-cost flights from American airlines.

Swoop announces flights to Mexico and US
The new ultra-low-cost carrier has bold plans to expand its horizons, planning operations in the southern U.S. and Mexico after it launches its Canada services in June. WestJet is counting on its Swoop brand to fend off a new breed of bargain carriers such as Flair Airlines while the fledgling carrier attempts to take market share from leisure operators Air Transat and Sunwing Airlines.
“In June, when we have all of the regulatory approvals, we will announce southern flying into the U.S. and Mexico, potentially the Caribbean as well,” Bob Cummings, WestJet’s executive vice president of strategy, said in an interview. “We will aggressively go after the cross-border opportunity, which is quite significant.”
Swoop begins services to popular regional destinations such as Hamilton and Ontario on June 20th. Their one way fees will stat from less than $100. “Part of the strategy of Swoop is for it to be complementary to WestJet,” Cummings said. “It made sense for us to start our network as largely Hamilton-based, with some Abbotsford. Over time, we will evolve and deploy into other markets.” The operation mostly will focus on secondary airports, such as Hamilton, which is about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Toronto.

WestJet Airlines Inc. plans to target millennials, young families and frugal travellers for its discount carrier Swoop which launches service next summer
The Calgary-based airline said it expects to offer fares that are about half the level of the mainline carrier but come with hefty extra fees for bags and other ancillary services.
“The core of the brand is going to be low fares and enabling people to travel that wouldn’t be able to travel otherwise or travel more often,” WestJet executive vice-president Bob Cummings said Wednesday during an investor day presentation. Roughly 60% of Swoop passengers are expected to be leisure passengers, 30% to visit friends and family and 10% for business or in groups.

WestJet names ULCC unit Swoop
WestJet (WS, Calgary) has formally christened its nascent ultra low-cost carrier unit Swoop (Calgary). WestJet said in a statement Swoop would launch out of its Calgary hub in Summer 2018 using a fleet of ten high-density B737-800s.
"The city offers Swoop the opportunity to save costs through shared services with WestJet's corporate head office, the availability of existing infrastructure, and talented, experienced WestJetters to draw from. We are confident that these qualities will support our ultra-low-cost operations and our guests well into the future," Bob Cummings WestJet's Executive Vice-President (Strategy) and the executive member responsible for the launch of Swoop, said.
Featuring its own Air Operator's Certificate (AOC), Swoop will launch around the time fellow ULCC Jetlines (Vancouver Int'l) expects to complete its own certification drive.
