Low-cost Canadian airline Swoop is going to be adding flights to Cabo through the summer from the main cities in Canada. The airline currently flies to Los Cabos from Edmonton, Toronto, and Abbotsford in the Vancouver area. Flights from Abbotsford are set to scale up to 4 days a week starting next week. The airline usually only flies out to Cabo 2 days a week from the Vancouver area.
Flights from Toronto to Cabo are currently taking place three times a week already. This flight frequency is set to continue through the middle of April, when the airline is scheduled to scale back its number of weekly flights to two. Currently, through June, Swoop is scheduled to only fly on Saturdays to Cabo from Toronto. That number of flights can potentially be increased in the upcoming days.
When it comes to Edmonton, Swoop plans to fly to Cabo three times a week through the middle of April. As is the case with the other two destinations, currently, the airline is scheduled to scale back their flights from the middle of April onward, but the service will now be available through the end of June.
Low Rates Are Expected To Be A Constant Through The Spring
Last-minute flights to Cabo for this spring season on Swoop are going at affordable rates. For example, a three-night stay in Cabo in the middle of April can set travelers from Edmonton back as little as 275 CAD. That’s considerably lower than what’s being offered by other airlines. Plus, Swoop is essentially the only airline that currently flies to Cabo nonstop from Edmonton.
Even though Swoop is not the only airline that offers the non-stop flight from Abbotsford to Los Cabos, it is currently the one running the route at the lowest cost. The best deal for this route through the spring is a full week’s stay in Cabo from April 2nd to the 9th. Currently, that trip costs about 342 CAD on Swoop. Flair and West Jet also operate that route on the same dates. Tickets on those two airlines are going for 526 and 619 CAD, respectively.
When it comes to the Toronto route, currently, the best rates offered by Swoop are for a weekly stay in Cabo in the middle of April. A round trip on the aforementioned airline can be booked for around 356 CAD. Sunwing and Air Canada also operate a direct route from Toronto to Cabo. They tend to fly on different days than Swoop. Through Spring, the Sunwing flight is going for around 750 CAD on average, with the Air Canada flight usually costing more than 1000 CAD.
Things To Keep In Mind When Booking Flights With Swoop or Other Low-cost Airlines
Don’t expect many, if any, free add-ons when flying with Swoop. As is the case with virtually all low-cost airlines, Swoop charges an extra fee for the following amenities: assigned seating, a carry-on bag, and a checked bag. Also, keep in mind that any add-on that you pay for is nonrefundable.
Assigned seating on all of these flights to Cabo starts at 25 CAD. Travelers can choose to forgo this option. If so, they will be assigned a seat from the leftover pool of seats when they check-in for their flight. When it comes to carry-on bags as well as checked bags, those cost 60 CAD extra each.
According to Swoop’s official site, all of these rates are exclusive to online booking and are essentially the lowest it gets with them. That doesn’t mean that you can’t pay an extra fee for bags when you check in at the airport. The rate, though, usually goes up when you pay these extras there. Be sure to take these extra costs into account before booking your flight.
