Jamaica will see more service from the Canadian ultra low cost carrier Swoop as they plan to operate flights between Toronto and Kingston from December 8, 2021.
“We are pleased to strengthen our airline’s foothold in Jamaica by connecting to the city of Kingston during the holidays,” said Bert van der Stege, Swoop’s Chief Commercial and Financial Officer. “Our travelers have embraced our consistently affordable flights to Jamaica and we look forward to building on our success in the region with our new direct service connecting Toronto and Kingston,” he added.
The airline is expected to operate two flights per week (Wednesdays and Saturdays) as follows with a Boeing 737-800.
Flights to Montego Bay have also resumed effective immediately, with service up to three times a week between the two destinations. For now, there will be one flight per week on Saturdays, with a Tuesday flight being added in November, and Thursday service coming later in December.
“Swoop’s return to Montego Bay is welcome and we are delighted with Swoop’s commitment to ensuring that passengers from our second-largest market, Canada, and specifically the province of Ontario, have a low-cost option when visiting Jamaica to see family and friends or those wishing to vacation on our beautiful island,” said Shane Munroe, chief executive officer of MBJ Airports Ltd.
The airline is expected to operate three flights per week (Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays) as follows with a Boeing 737-800.
The WestJet subsidiary currently operates 9 hand-me-down Boeing 737-800s. With the addition of the Kingston route, Swoop will operate flights between 19 destinations spread between Canada, the United States, Mexico and Jamaica.
