The expansion continues! Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop has announced new nonstop flights from Hamilton to 3 brand new cites. Starting in late June, look for new cheap flights to/from Charlottetown, Moncton, and St. John's. Intro fares start from $157 CAD roundtrip.
This is great news for Canadians in the greater Toronto area looking to explore Newfoundland, New Brunswick, or Prince Edward Island. And if you live in the Buffalo or Rochester areas of Western New York, it may be worth the drive to Hamilton in order to save on a cheap nonstop flight.
New Nonstop Swoop Flights to/from Charlottetown, Moncton, and St. Johns
All of the new routes begin service in late June 2020. One daily flight between Hamilton (YHM) and St. John's (YYT) starts June 23, 2020. The Moncton (YQM) route will fly 5 times per week, on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, beginning June 24; and the Charlottetown (YYG) route operates 3 times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, starting June 27, 2020.
None of the routes currently have nonstop service from Hamilton Airport (YHM) but you may see Air Canada or WestJet start to drop prices from nearby Toronto-Pearson Airport (YYZ) and Porter may respond with lower fares from nearby Toronto-Bishop Airport (YTZ).

- Travel Period: Late June through October.
- Travel Days of the Week: Vary by route.

We especially like the fact that the intro fares are available for peak summer travel!
Intro fares must be booked by January 17, 2020, at 11:59 pm MT, or while seats last.
New Nonstop Flights on Swoop for Summer 2020 Travel
You can toggle which currency you'd like to see on the fare details page by clicking on the flag on the right-hand side of the top menu bar.
Note: Prices will not change in this blog post, but will be displayed in the chosen currency on the fare details pages. The converted price may fluctuate slightly depending on the current rate.
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 Hamilton YHM on Friday, July 10, returning from St. John's YYT on Monday, July 13, for $167 CAD roundtrip.
