Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop is expanding its network this spring/summer. The airline will add three new cities in London, Ontario (YXU), Kelowna (YLW), and Oakland (OAK). In addition, Swoop is introducing a nonstop flight from Edmonton (YEG) to Orlando (MCO). Intro fares are available starting from $198 CAD roundtrip ($149 USD).

Fares may vary slightly depending on city of origin. You may be able to get slightly lower fares by booking separate one-way flights in each direction. Prices were found on Swoop's website in CAD and converted to USD for comparison purposes on Airfarewatchdog.
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.
Larger carry-on and checked bag fees start at $37-$52 CAD when purchased online. Higher bag fees apply at the airport. 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.
