Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) has landed yet another new airline with the announcement of Swoop coming to the Coachella Valley next month.

Today, Swoop – a Canadian Ultra Low-Cost Carrier – announced plans to start service between Palm Springs International Airport and Edmonton International Airport in Canada on December 16, 2021. The twice-weekly service will operate on Mondays and Thursdays on one of their Boeing 737-800 aircraft featuring in-seat power, inflight wi-fi, and 189 comfortable leather seats.

“We are thrilled to begin service to Palm Springs International Airport with the announcement of our new non-stop service to Edmonton,” said Charles Duncan, President of Swoop. “With more than three million travellers having already experienced Swoop’s incredible service and ultra-low fares we are confident this new route will be a huge success.”

With the arrival of Swoop, PSP will have nonstop service to 36 airports from 13 airlines in season and year-round service to 15 airports. Swoop airlines will be PSP’s fourth Canadian airline and third Ultra Low-Cost Carrier. PSP’s list of airlines and nonstop routes continues to increase as the Coachella Valley airport benefits from the return of leisure demand for its upcoming tourist season.

“We are thrilled to welcome Swoop Airlines to Greater Palm Springs,” said Gary Orfield, Visit Greater Palm Springs Director of Tourism Development. “As our international borders have reopened, this new service will continue to build upon our strong relationship of providing a warm welcome and sunshine to our Canadian neighbors.”
