Atlantic Canada is closer than ever for travellers from Edmonton International Airport (EIA) with the launch of summer service to two new non-stop destinations.

Swoop begins service to Charlottetown, P.E.I. on June 16 and Moncton, New Brunswick on June 17. 

Both destinations are new non-stop flights for Edmonton. The two new destinations join existing service to Atlantic Canada that includes Halifax with Swoop and WestJet and St. John’s, Newfoundland with WestJet.

 Growing service to Atlantic Canada is part of EIA’s overall strategy to increase non-stop destinations for high demand areas and improved access to Atlantic Canada has been a common request from travellers, according to a press release issued Thursday (June 16). 

EIA now offers 55 non-stop destinations, including seasonal routes, which is more than before the start of the global pandemic. 

This includes 14 US destinations, 10 international destinations and 31 Canadian routes. 

EIA says it continues to work with multiple airlines about expanding service to new destinations on a permanent and seasonal basis.

“There are so many proud Atlantic Canadians who come to Alberta, whether for work, family visits or vacation and having these non-stop destinations will help make their travel experience even easier. We also know there are many Albertans who want to visit the wonderful east coast and see more of Canada. Thank you Swoop for increasing service to these destinations," said Myron Keehn, VP, air service, business development, government relations and ESG at Edmonton International Airport

 Service to Charlottetown operates:

  • June 16-Mid September – twice a week
  • Mid-September until October 31 – once a week

 Service to Moncton operates:

  • June 17-Mid September – twice a week
  • Mid-September until October 31 – once a week
