Ultra-low cost airline Swoop celebrated its inaugural flight between John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) and Greater Moncton Roméo Leblanc International Airport (YQM) on Monday (May 9).  

Swoop flight WO168 took off from Hamilton this morning at 8:00 a.m. ET and arrived in Moncton at 10:55 a.m. local time.

"As Canada's leading ultra-low fare airline, we are excited to continue our Atlantic Canada expansion with this inaugural flight to Moncton today," said Bert van der Stege, head of commercial and finance at Swoop. "As the demand for travel resurges, Swoop is very excited to offer this non-stop service as one of 11 new routes to the east coast this summer."

In addition to the inaugural service from Hamilton to Moncton, Swoop will soon be offering new non-stop service between Edmonton and Moncton beginning on June 17, as well as service between Toronto and Saint John, beginning later this week. 

"Canadians are excited to travel again this summer and reconnect with friends and family and we know Swoop's ultra-not-expensive fares will help make this possible," said van der Stege, "We recognize the importance of tourism across Atlantic Canada, and we are proud to be celebrating this investment in the recovery of New Brunswick's tourism economy."

In celebration of the new service, Swoop's Head of Commercial and Finance, Bert van der Stege and Julie Pondant, Swoop's senior advisor, public affairs, were pleased to join Courtney Burns, Incoming President and CEO for Greater Moncton International Airport Authority (GMIAA) and other YQM airport executives for a gate-side celebration prior to the arrival of the inaugural flight.
