June 21, 2022
On June 16, Swoop, Canada’s leading ultra-low-cost airline, arrived at Regina International Airport (YQR) for the first time. Swoop flight WO582 from Edmonton International Airport (YEG) received a warm welcome upon landing at 8:00 a.m. local time before departing for Winnipeg.
“We are thrilled to continue our summer network expansion here in Regina with two important inaugural flights,” said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial and Finance at Swoop. “Today’s celebration reinforces Swoop’s commitment to enabling Canadians to travel more, and we’re proud to offer residents of Regina access to ultra-convenient and ultra-affordable flights to both Winnipeg and Edmonton.”
Later this month, Swoop will add more non-stop service from Regina to Toronto.
“We are thrilled to see Swoop Airlines expanding to Regina,” said Mayor Sandra Masters. “Having the addition of Swoop’s affordable air service is vital to the economic recovery and growth of tourism and hospitality in our city.”
“We are excited to welcome Swoop to YQR with Ultra Low-Cost air service to three major Canadian cities, Toronto, Edmonton and Winnipeg. All of Southern Saskatchewan will benefit from this additional air service capacity, which provides significant benefit to the local economy.” – James Bogusz, President and CEO, Regina Airport Authority
