All fares are nonstop. Prices were found on Swoop's website in CAD and converted to USD for comparison purposes on Airfarewatchdog. Flights originating in the U.S. show the lowest prices when booking roundtrip flights, while flights originating in Canada will yield the lowest fares by booking two separate one-way flights in each direction.
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 $32-$35 CAD when purchased online. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $37-$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.
As an example booking, I found a one-way flight departing Hamilton YHM to Orlando MCO on Saturday, January 19, for $89 CAD. For the return flight, I found a one-way flight from Orlando MCO to Hamilton YHM on Tuesday, January 22, for $39 CAD. Totaling $128 CAD roundtrip ($98 USD).
