There's a lot to be aware of when travelling right now and we understand it can feel overwhelming. COVID-19 has changed many things, but it hasn't changed our number one priority; safety. We follow guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada to maintain a clean and safe environment for all. If you have a flight coming up soon, here's everything you need to know about travelling with Swoop. We're here to guide you with a helping hand to get you on your way!

On October 21, the WestJet Group, including Swoop, announced it will begin providing refunds related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Travellers with eligible itineraries will be proactively contacted by Swoop, beginning November 2, 2020. We appreciate your patience as we work through the administrative backlog.

In addition to thorough grooming between flights, our aircraft undergo a professional deep cleaning overnight, which includes the sanitization of all onboard surfaces using a process called fogging. Fogging uses a safe, hydrogen peroxide-based disinfecting solution to quickly and effectively sanitize all onboard nooks and crannies.
