"As Canada's ultra-not-expensive airline, we are thrilled to be back in London as part of our summer network expansion," said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial and Finance at Swoop. "Re-connecting Canadians this summer is made easier with convenient and affordable air service. We're proud to be back supporting London with ultra-not expensive fares, assisting in the recovery of the tourism and hospitality industry."

Swoop first began service to London in April 2019, providing the community with non-stop connectivity. As demand for travel continues to grow, Swoop is delighted to be reconnecting London to the airline's network.

"I am thrilled to welcome Swoop back to London. Not only is this great news for local air travellers, and the London International Airport, it's equally important from an economic growth and tourism perspective," said Ed Holder, Mayor of London. "People from across the region enjoy the ease and convenience of flying local, and the return of Swoop provides even greater incentive to do so."

"We are extremely excited to welcome Swoop back to the London International Airport" said Scott McFadzean, President and CEO of London International Airport.  "We have enjoyed a strong partnership with Swoop pre-pandemic and looking forward to continuing to grow the partnership and service at YXU further in 2022 and beyond.
