This weekend, Swoop, Canada's ultra-low-fare airline and subsidiary of WestJet Airlines Inc., takes-off with its new service from Edmonton International Airport (YEG) to Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR). Swoop's first direct flight to Puerto Vallarta on October 19 at 5:35 AM MDT is the first of four new routes with service between Edmonton and Mexico to launch this winter.
"As winter draws closer, we are thrilled to offer Edmonton travellers an affordable way to escape to the sun," said Steven Greenway, President, Swoop. "With the continued growth of our network, we are expanding our presence across North America, providing Canadians with more travel options at an affordable price."
Swoop offers unbundled airfare, services and amenities to allow for travellers to customize their experience and book a getaway at a price that works for them. As one of Swoop's major hubs, the ultra-low-cost-carrier currently operates eight domestic, transborder and international year-round and seasonal routes from Edmonton. Swoop's new routes to Mexico include service to Cancun International Airport (CUN) launching on October 31, and service to Mazatlán International Airport (MZT) and Los Cabos Mexico International Airport (SJD) beginning November 2.
"Puerto Vallarta is one of Edmonton region travellers' favourite sun destinations," said Tom Ruth, Edmonton International Airport President and CEO. "The new Swoop flights provide great new scheduling options for our sun seeking vacation travellers."
Flights are now available for booking through to April 23, 2020, offering weekly service to Puerto Vallarta on Saturdays.
