LONDON – Swoop, one of Canada’s newest low-cost carriers is restarting its flights to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of North America from Hamilton International Airport in Ontario as per the airline’s schedule on 23 June 2022.
On Thursday the 23rd, Swoop Airlines finally took off to Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport from Hamilton’s John C. Munro International Airport.
The much-anticipated flight carries the flight number of WO 802, which took off from Hamilton at 2:00 PM (23/06/2022). The re-launched flight was celebrated during the boarding procedure with a Las Vegas-themed decoration.
Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial and Finance, Swoop, said:
“As Canada’s ultra-not-expensive airline, we are thrilled to be resuming our highly-demanded service between Hamilton and Las Vegas. Today’s celebration reinforces our commitment to Canadian travellers and the Hamilton community, providing more convenient options for residents to enjoy weekend getaways and long-awaited vacations.”
Swoop has been prepping for the busy summer months for weeks like all Canadian carriers. Nevertheless, this summer will be one of the most significant summers as there is great anticipation to fly amongst many Canadians.
The ultra-low-cost carrier is gearing up for a very busy schedule ahead. The airline will connect Hamilton to famous American cities and will gain an additional 11 other destinations to and from Hamilton.
Van Der Stege further commented that: “Canadians are excited to travel again this summer, and after two years of restrictions, we’ve seen record demand for getaways across the border.”
“This restart reinforces the incredible growth trajectory we’re experiencing, as ultra-low fares continue to unlock new opportunities for Canadians to explore America’s largest cities,” he concluded.
The re-launching of the Las Vegas flight is very exciting for the airline indeed, as this signals strong demand and growth from the leisure market. Las Vegas will finally enjoy the much anticipated non-stop service to Hamilton and vice-versa.
‘Hamiltonites’ will have direct non-stop access to the world’s most sought-after gambling and entertainment cities, marred with famous events.
H. Fletch Brunelle, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority said:
“We are thrilled that travellers can once again return to this popular destination and start their journey with comfort and ease from Hamilton International.”
“We’re delighted our partners at Swoop are resuming nonstop flights to Las Vegas from Hamilton International Airport. International travel continues to be a key component of Las Vegas’ recovery, and we look forward to welcoming more flights from Canada, our top international market for visitation prior to the pandemic.”
“From incredible entertainment and sports events to world-class dining and attractions, there are so many new, only-in-Vegas experiences awaiting our Canadian visitors,” she concluded.
With fares beginning at $119 Canadian Dollars (CAD), this demonstrates how affordable the airline is.
