Get ready for cheap flights to some fun in the sun! Swoop has opened up its winter schedule and is adding 14 new nonstop routes from Canada to the U.S. and Mexico. Fares from Canada are as low as $266 CAD roundtrip and $182 USD roundtrip from the U.S.
Swoop is adding one new city in this expansion. Los Cabos (SJD) will be the 4th destination in Mexico that Swoop will serve. Other Mexican cities on Swoop's route map include Cancun (CUN), Mazatlan (MZT), and Puerto Vallarta (PVR).
Swoop Adds 14 New Flights from Canada to U.S. and Mexico
The new routes begin in October, November, or December. There will be 7 new routes from Winnipeg (YWG), 4 new routes from Edmonton (YEG), and 3 new routes from London (YXU). Similar to Swoop's other sun destinations, each route will operate on limited days each week.
Swoop appears to be picking up the slack after Flair Air canceled its flights to the U.S. earlier this year. The new routes to Florida, Vegas, Arizona, and Mexico will compete directly with WestJet on a few routes and Swoop will be the only nonstop carrier on others.
These popular destinations for Canadians will likely be cheaper to get to on other carriers due to the added competition. Sign up for airfare alerts to find out when prices drop.
Flights are operated on specific days of the week for each route. Intro fares are valid from start of service through April. Intro fares from Florida are only available through December.
There are no blackout dates listed so some of these fares may be available for holiday travel, though we're seeing the low fares go fast for peak travel dates.
Intro fares must be booked by 11:59 pm MT, July 5, 2019, or while seats last.

Prices were found on Swoop's website and converted to USD for comparison purposes on Airfarewatchdog. You may or may not find that you need to book two separate one-way fares in each direction in order to get the lowest price.
These fares only include one small personal item. Checked bag and carry-on bag fees start at $40-$46 CAD each way when purchased during the initial booking.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Searching on Swoop's site, I found flights departing Winnipeg YWG on Wednesday, January 8, returning from Los Cabos SJD on Sunday, January 12, for $393 CAD roundtrip ($299 USD).
