And Swoop mentioned that it plans to introduce more destinations once it starts flying. It is planning to support those plans by adding four new aircraft to its existent six that is all Boeing 737s by spring 2019.
The airline promises modern airplanes and ultra-low fares thereby offering a customized experience.
