WINNIPEG — Ultra-low-fire airline Swoop has added a second Mexican destination direct from Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport.

The WestJet subsidiary now flies sun-seeking travellers from Winnipeg to Puerto Vallarta once weekly.

“These additional routes are helping further strengthen Winnipeg’s connection to the world by opening the door for Winnipeg Richardson International Airport to welcome more travellers to Winnipeg. Swoop continues to be a valuable partner who recognizes Winnipeg’s potential,” said Barry Rempel, president and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority.

The first flight on the new route departed Tuesday at 8:45 a.m.

Swoop recently announced five additional destinations as part of its network out of Winnipeg. The airline also currently flies direct to Los Cabos, Mexico.

The new Puerto Vallarta route will run Tuesdays until April 21, 2020.
