After adding 14 new routes last week, Swoop decided to put one more city on its route map this week. New nonstop service to and from San Diego will begin this fall. Intro fares are as low as $201 USD roundtrip from San Diego and $281 CAD roundtrip from Canada to San Diego.
New nonstop service on Swoop between Canada and San Diego
New nonstop service from both Abbotsford (YXX) and Edmonton (YEG) to San Diego (SAN) will begin on October 4, 2019. Swoop will fly twice per week from Abbotsford on Sundays and Fridays. From Edmonton, Swoop will operate flights 3 times per week on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
Swoop has been on a roll this past week by adding several new routes. Hopefully, it's a sign that airfares to and from Canada will continue to fall with the added competition for Canada's larger airlines Air Canada and WestJet.
New routes often spur fare wars so be sure to sign up for airfare alerts to find out when prices drop.
Intro fares are valid for travel from October through December. While you must travel south from Canada to San Diego by early December, intro fares departing San Diego are available through April.
Intro fares must be booked by 11:59 pm MT, July 4, 2019, or while seats last.

Prices were found on Swoop's website and converted to USD for comparison purposes on Airfarewatchdog. You may or may not find that you need to book two separate one-way fares in each direction in order to get the lowest price.
These fares only include one small personal item. Checked bag and carry-on bag fees start at $40-$46 CAD each way when purchased during the initial booking.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Searching on Swoop's site, I found a one-way flight from Abbotsford YXX to San Diego SAN on Friday, October 4, for $119 CAD. For the return, I found a one-way flight from San Diego SAN to Abbotsford YXX on Sunday, October 6, for $123 USD. Combine the two, and it's approximately $281 CAD roundtrip ($214 USD)
