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.
Abbotsford is located in the beautiful Fraser Valley, an amazing city for year-round golf and adventures on the Sumas Mountain. It is well known for its fresh produce, delicious food, aromatic beer and fragrant wine. Fly with Swoop to the annual Abbotsford International Airshow in August, a very popular event for the city. Abbotsford is just a short 1-hour drive from Vancouver, Canada's third largest city, if you're looking for a city experience.
If you want to take public transit, you can hop on a Central Fraser Valley Transit bus, which will take you around Abbotsford and connect you to Langley, Mission and Chilliwack. In Langley, you can also connect to Translink service to Metro Vancouver. You can also rent a car from the Abbotsford International Airport and hit the open road! If you're the 'sharing is caring' type, check out carpooling options through Poparide, an independently operated intercity carpooling platform that offers an affordable and convenient way to get to and from Abbotsford and many other cities across Canada.
Downtown Vancouver is about an hour drive from YXX, and there are lots of options for how to get there! Options include carpooling, shuttle services, taxis and rideshares and buses. For more details, you can check out the Abbotsford Airport website.
Make sure to do your research before you travel! Sites such as Expedia and TripAdvisor will show you where to stay and eat to get the most bang for your buck, and you can look up free events on the Tourism Abbotsford event calendar.
Many people don’t know this, but “Hollywood North” is alive and well in the Fraser Valley! Many popular TV shows and movies were filmed there, including Twilight, The X-Files, Riverdale and Planet of the Apes. You can even find a roadtrip itinerary on the Scenic 7 website and check out the locations for all your favourite films IRL!
