Swoop, Canada’s ultra-low-fare airline and a subsidiary of WestJet Airlines Inc., announced last week the launch of its flight service from London International Airport (YXU) to McCarran International Airport (LAS).

“The addition of the London – Las Vegas route provides the opportunity for more Canadians to travel throughout North America at a price that works for them,” said Steven Greenway, president, Swoop.

“We are excited to continue to expand our network as Canada’s preferred ultra-low-fare airline. Our unbundled model helps keep fares low for all travelers because they get to customize their experience by choosing where they spend their money.”

The twice-weekly service is scheduled to fly on Thursdays and Sundays, and is now available for booking through Apr. 23, 2020.

This addition to Swoop’s network is the sixth route from London, with year-round and seasonal routes including Orlando, Cancun, Abbotsford, Edmonton, and Halifax.
