Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop is launching new nonstop flights to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
The carrier will kick off its first-ever service from Toronto Pearson International Airport to Punta Cana International Airport beginning Dec. 5.
The flights will operate twice weekly, part of a broader network expansion for Swoop in the Caribbean this winter.
“Our expansion into the Dominican Republic furthers our commitment to bringing even more choice to Torontonians who are looking to vacation without paying the traditionally high cost of travel,” said Bert van der Stege, Head of Commercial & Finance, Swoop. “Punta Cana has long been a traveller favourite and we are excited to begin operations to the popular Caribbean destination as we continue to recover our operations and return to a growth strategy this winter season.”
Swoop will now fly from Toronto to a host of Caribbean destinations including Cancun and Montego Bay as well.
“We are excited to welcome Canadian passengers arriving through Swoop Airlines at our Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ). We hope our visitors can rediscover the joy and love for travel as soon as they step into our airport”, said Frank Elias Rainieri, president and CEO of Grupo Puntacana.
