Ultra-low-cost airline Swoop has added new routes between Winnipeg and Kelowna, B.C. as part of its summer schedule.
The WestJet-affiliated airline will offer service between Manitoba’s capital and the Okanagan three times per week for $119. The schedule also sees the return of the seasonal route between Abbotsford, B.C. and Winnipeg four times per week for $129.
Air Canada and WestJet Airlines Ltd. are joining a growing wave of companies that have cut ties to SeaWorld, in sync with the spirit of a bill to ban whale and dolphin captivity and in the wake of concerns raised by animal rights advocates.
The Senate passed legislation last Tuesday that would make keeping and breeding cetaceans such as dolphins and whales a criminal offence.
