"We know residents of the London area value the convenience and affordability that their local airport offers, and so we're proud to make winter getaways easier with more frequent ultra-affordable flights to Mexico and Florida."

To celebrate this important restart, Swoop's Senior Advisor, Public Affairs, Julie Pondant was joined by London International Airport President and CEO Scott McFadzean gate-side for a brief ceremony where travellers were treated to refreshments and giveaways.

"The Quintana Roo Tourism Board congratulates Swoop on the new flight, and we're excited to see airlift expanding from Ontario to the sunny destinations in the Mexican Caribbean. This will encourage more travel from the London region, especially now in the winter season, making the trip easier and more affordable for everyone. We invite and welcome more Canadian travellers to experience the wonders of the Mexican Caribbean: turquoise waters, impeccable beaches, tropical jungles, Mayan archeological sites, underground rivers, beautiful islands, lagoons and lush landscapes are just the starting point. There's something new to experience in every town, island and beach to excite your palate, your quest for adventure or your desire to relax", said Laura Nesteanu, Account Director for the Quintana Roo Tourism Board in US & Canada.
