For those who are looking to fly down to Mexico on the cheap this spring, Swoop is offering a fantastic deal that is hard to beat.
As part of its 4-Day Spring Sale, the carrier offers 8,400 seats on sale as well as discounted prices on its Swoop Getaways packages. The sale is valid for travel between Mar. 23 and May 28, but the airline has specified May 14 through 18 as blackout dates.
While there are a smorgasbord of itineraries included in the sale, only one of them departs from Abbotsford. However, it offers a fantastic opportunity for residents of the Lower Mainland to enjoy this breathtaking destination.
For example, the flight below departs on Wednesday, Apr. 1 and flies nonstop Abbotsford to Mazatlan and costs a total of $99.47 CAD including all taxes and fees. What's more, a return flight costs $107.05 CAD, which brings the total cost of the flight to $206.52 CAD including all taxes and fees.
Flying Swoop: What to know before you go
Since Swoop flies out of Abbotsford, Vancouverites have to make a trip into the Fraser Valley in order to catch their flights. As a result, many locals skip the low-cost option because they don’t want to spend the extra time or money getting to the airport.
For those who are looking to save, but don’t want to spend big bucks on a cab or leaving their car at the airport, there is an alternative: Reliable Bus. Find out more information about the cost-effective transit option here.
Note: While the low-cost carrier is an extremely affordable alternative, it is worthwhile to note that there are a number of additional costs. For one, luggage will cost extra, as will selecting your own seat or even speaking to an operator. As such, it is worthwhile to factor in what you need to bring, or if you want to sit in a particular spot.
