All fares are nonstop. Prices were found on Swoop's website in CAD and converted to USD for comparison purposes on Airfarewatchdog. Domestic Canadian fares are mostly the same in the reverse direction. Some routes may vary slightly depending on city of origin. Cross-border routes tend to have a greater variance in pricing depending on city of origin.
As with other ultra-low-cost carriers, the base fare will only include transportation for you and a small personal item such as a small backpack, briefcase, or large purse that will fit underneath the seat in front of you.
Checked bag fees start at $30-$35 CAD when purchased online. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $35-$41 CAD. There are also extra fees if you would like to choose a specific seat and for pretty much anything else such as snacks or beverages onboard.
