Coronavirus updates. Learn more about Swoop's response.
Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., we will suspend all our international and transborder flights. This suspension follows Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement imposing travel restrictions for all flights entering Canada to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The suspension will be in place until May 31, 2020.
We will be providing regular updates on all our channels and are reaching out directly to these impacted travellers via email with more specific information.
Tampa is a bright, bustling city full of sandy beaches, innovative restaurants, and fascinating culture.
