Take two! Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop has once again announced new nonstop flights to San Diego. After originally announcing the flights would begin this past fall, Swoop quietly pulled the flights from its schedule. But San Diego is back on its route map for the summer 2020 travel season along with new flights to Kamloops and Victoria. Intro fares are as low as $192 CAD roundtrip.
New Nonstop Swoop Flights to/from San Diego, Kamloops, and Victoria
The new nonstop service has been added in conjunction with Swoop extending its booking schedule through summer on all of its routes. Tickets can now be booked for travel through October 24, 2020.
While Swoop had originally planned San Diego (SAN) service from both Abbotsford (YXX) and Edmonton (YEG) earlier this year, only Edmonton will be getting the new nonstop flights to southern California starting next summer. Flights begin May 8, 2020, and will operate on Sundays and Fridays, with Tuesday flights starting in June.
Swoop is also adding new nonstop service from Edmonton to/from Kamloops (YKA), starting April 30, 2020. Flights will operate on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays, with Wednesday flights starting in June. And new flights between Winnipeg (YWG) and Victoria (YYJ) begin April 27, 2020. Flights will operate Mondays through Thursdays, and Saturdays.
New routes often spur fare wars so be sure to sign up for airfare alerts to find out when prices drop on all airlines.

Fares may vary by a few dollars depending on the city of origin. You may find slightly lower fares by booking two separate one-way fares in each direction.
These fares only include one small personal item. Checked bag and carry-on bag fees start at $32 -$57 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 flight departing Winnipeg YWG on Thursday, June 18, returning from Victoria YYJ on Monday, June 22, for $238 CAD roundtrip.
