The low-cost airline will return to London International Airport with low-cost flights to Edmonton, the airport announced Monday.

Swoop, owned by WestJet Airlines Ltd., will begin service three times a week in June.

“Swoop was a hit in London before the pandemic and offered convenient flights to top destinations at a low cost,” said airport manager Michael Seabrook.

“We are optimistic that we will soon see more Swoop routes coming back. Today’s announcement is a positive step in the right direction!”

Swoop and other airlines have suspended their services in London due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are excited to re-establish service to London International Airport with the announcement of our non-stop Edmonton flights this summer,” said Swoop President Charles Duncan.

“London International Airport has worked hard to keep its costs and fees low. They are in line with our low-cost model, and in a partnership, we are confident that this route will be a great success. “

Before the pandemic, the airport had about 40 flights a day; after March 2020, it was reduced to two.

Earlier this month, Ottawa announced that international flights will be allowed to land at eight Canadian airports from November 30, but London is not on the list.

Some of the airports that are allowed to have international flights are in cities with smaller residents than London or Windsor, both of which were left out of the list as airlines are preparing for flights with COVID-tired Canadians to hot spots this winter.
