WS' Swoop Announces Summer 2020 Expansion

Fri Dec 13, 2019 8:52 pm

https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/s ... 60825.html

Obviously the 3 additional tails are transferring from mainline to Swoop.

New routes/frequency increases are as follows:
- Edmonton-Kamloops up to four times weekly - So YKA is a new Swoop destination
- Winnipeg-London up to four times weekly - WS cut the daily YWG-YXU, so this brings it back...not a surprise.
- Winnipeg-Victoria up to five times weekly - taking over from mainline
- Edmonton-San Diego up to three times weekly - New destination or a route takeover from mainline?
- Edmonton-Abbotsford from 16 times weekly, to 24 times weekly
- Hamilton-Winnipeg, from six times weekly, to 10 times weekly
- Abbotsford to Winnipeg, from four times weekly, to daily

So YKA, YHM and YXX will get some serious boost to their passengers states.

This announcement for SAN is a re-do from earlier this year, but Abbotsford-SAN was also originally announced and apparently has been dropped from Swoops plans. That's ok by me -- at least we are getting a new carrier along with a brand new route! Interesting that SAN is the only trans-border (to the U.S.) route announced. That is nice to see too.

I hope it happens as planned this time...

That’s true about YWG-YYJ. It was seasonal YWG-YXX on mainline that got transferred to Swoop.

YYJ-YWG is interesting, don't know how well YYJ-YWG is gonna do, newleaf (now flair) has been there and done that and it didn't go very well. Although a YYJ-LAS could be a nice addition to YYJ. Hopefully YYJ is a success.
