The Jets are out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but Winnipeggers can still jet over to eastern Canada for cheap. The new ultra-low-cost-carrier Swoop begins service next month. Nonstop flights from Winnipeg to Hamilton for $97 CAD ($76 USD) roundtrip are available for fall travel.
For example, I was able to find seats on Flyswoop.com departing Winnipeg YWG on Saturday, September 8, returning from Hamilton YHM on Wednesday, September 12.
New nonstop service on Swoop begins June 25. You'll find this price on a few dates the last week of June, but most availability is from September through mid-December.
Swoop fares only include one small personal item (small backpack, large purse, etc.). Checked bag fees start at $27-$29 CAD each way. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $37-$41 CAD each way.
Situated at the western edge of Lake Ontario, Hamilton is just an hour drive from Niagara Falls or Toronto. Take a cruise to experience the power of the falls or visit the Hockey Hall of Fame.
