“My dad was in the US Navy and we were stationed in Italy. Every summer, my younger brother and I flew unaccompanied back to the States. As a young child, flying alone, I fell completely under the spell of the magic of air travel.
My first job in aviation was for Continental Airlines, as a pricing and revenue analyst. I learned the business of air travel. I was so committed that I used my days off to fly my own markets and observe the passengers to learn about their flying habits.
As the President of Swoop, an ultra-low-cost carrier, I like to say that we stay ‘maniacally cost-focused’ to give passengers the best value. We depart earlier in the morning or later at night. We have more seats on the aircraft and passengers only pay for what they use. As a result, our costs are at least 40% lower than premium airlines.
Canadians face difficult economic headwinds ahead. What Swoop brings is incredible value and we’re dedicated to making air travel financially achievable for anyone. If you want fancy extras, Swoop may not be for you. But if you want to see your family, we’ll get you there with health and hygiene as the top priority.”
