Ultra-low fares explained.

Swoop 101

If you’ve travelled, you know the drill. You plan your trip, book your flights, question the fare and wish there were more affordable options. Airlines are bundlers, which is great for convenience, but not so great for low fares.

Well, you can consider Ultra Low Cost Carriers like Swoop unbundlers. A relatively new concept to North America, ULCC airlines have been gaining momentum across the world for years now. And now, it’s an option for Canadians.

Backed by one of Canada’s largest airlines, Swoop makes air travel simple, affordable and accessible for every traveller. With a base price that starts with just a seat, we’re creating à la carte service that puts you, the traveller, in the driver seat. You can add a snack, checked baggage or in-flight Wi-Fi at an additional cost – your choice.

The fare is lower while flying a safe, comfortable fleet. To make the ULCC model work, we’ve standardized plane sizes, seating configurations and flight patterns, and kept the bells and whistles at airports to a minimum. It’s not going to replace other airlines – just complement the options available.
