More Travelers Are Ready to Fly Low-Cost

Passengers who take ultra-low-cost routes know that these flights don’t include services that are considered “basic” in other airlines' services. The right to choose a seat, include checked bags, get refreshments, or Wi-Fi, is usually charged for an extra cost in low-cost flights. 

Despite the extra costs, travelers seem to be eager to travel this year, and Swoop Airlines has considered their customer’s needs. The company assures that the passenger numbers and bookings have significantly increased, and since more than 30.5 million Canadians are fully vaccinated, they forecast a very busy summer.
