St. Pete-Clearwater Airport for Swoop launch to Toronto

Contrary to its airport code – PIE – St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport also loves a good cake. The airport recently celebrated the Swoop inaugural from PIE to Toronto with a spectacular cake.

Contrary to its airport code – PIE – St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport also loves a good cake. PIE commemorated the launch of its partnership with Canada’s ultra low-cost carrier Swoop with the inaugural flight from Toronto to St. Pete-Clearwater. Executives and marketing staff from Swoop and PIE met the flight moments after its arrival on the tarmac under an intense water cannon salute.

Inside at the gate, guests were greeted by a custom cake created by local bakery Petite Madelyn’s. The three-layer temptation depicted sweeping St. Pete-Clearwater vistas and featured several Canadian icons, including a flag-waving beaver, the Toronto Maple Leafs logo, hockey sticks and a Swoop plane, all topped with the CN Tower.

The arrival marked the first international flight to PIE since 2020. The Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier, owned by WestJet, provides two weekly flights to and from Toronto, and has since added one weekly flight to and from Hamilton, Ontario.

This has been a big year for St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport and Allegiant. In addition to celebrating 15 years of a successful, non-stop partnership, the airport and airline have also launched seven new routes in 2021, with the latest being the highly anticipated St. Pete-Clearwater to Key West (EYW) route.

To celebrate this new non-stop, twice-weekly route, PIE greeted the arrival of the inaugural flight with a spread of refreshments highlighted by a tremendous cake created by Petite Madelyn’s bakery of St. Pete-Clearwater. The towering masterpiece featured the iconic “Southernmost Point” marker atop two layers of cake wrapped in aqua blue frosting and adorned with tropical flora, fauna and signature Key West sights, all rendered in delicious sweetness. A peekaboo jelly portion recreated the ocean with an underwater coral reef scene.
