Yesterday, Swoop celebrated its first flight to Orlando Sanford International Airport. The ultra-low-cost airline's inaugural service took off from Toronto Pearson International Airport at 8:00 a.m. EST and safely arrived at 11:00 a.m. local time.

"We are thrilled to be expanding our U.S. network with the launch of today's inaugural flight to Orlando Sanford International Airport," said Shane Workman, Head of Flight Operations, Swoop.

We know Canadians are eager to travel south to sunny Florida this winter and Orlando Sanford International Airport's convenience, accessibility and proximity to nearby attractions make it the perfect gateway to the region.

Today's inaugural kicked off the first of four new non-stop routes to Orlando Sanford International Airport for the ultra-low-cost airline. In the coming months, additional non-stop service to Orlando Sanford is set to begin from Hamilton, ON, Winnipeg, MB and Edmonton, AB.
