Swoop Winnipeg to Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Cabos, Orlando and Tampa
Steven Greenway, Swoop President, and Scott Marohn, VP Aviation Marketing at Winnipeg Airports Authority celebrate the launch of five new routes from Winnipeg.
- WestJet’s ULCC, Swoop, commenced five flights in the past week from Winnipeg to Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Cabos, Orlando and Tampa. All are twice-weekly. (Los Cabos starts once-weekly and increases to twice-weekly in December.) OAG Traffic Analyser shows that, in the past 12 months, an estimated 145,000 flew these five routes, with around 56% indirectly. Of these five routes, only Fort Lauderdale has no direct competition. Swoop and WestJet will be head-to-head to Las Vegas and Orlando. Come December 2019, Swoop will add Winnipeg to Phoenix Mesa and Puerto Vallarta.
