About 10 thousand Canadians will fly with Swoop to Cancun in the remaining days of the winter season thanks to the Hamilton-Cancun-Hamilton route, inaugurated this Monday with three weekly frequencies, which will operate on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, and offer the connection between Ontario and Quintana Roo until the end of next April.

Last week Swoop inaugurated the Puerto Vallarta connection and on January 20 will activate a route via Mazatlan, and currently there are seven Canadian airlines that connect 21 destinations of the country of the maple leaf with Cancun, most of them seasonal.

The airline flies to 11 destinations in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean, operating a fleet of four Boeing 737-800 aircraft with which it offers completely unbundled services, creating the unique opportunity for travelers to control their costs and personalize their experience by buying only the extras they want.

The ultra low cost airlines have caused an alteration in the current ecosystem of the industry. There are several airlines currently flying in this niche, the Icelandic Wow, the Latinas Viva, Flybondi and Jetsmart, the US Allegiant, Spirit, and Frontier, and the Canadian Flair, while this year is expected Swoop (driven by Westjet), and that of the Canadian Jetlines.
