In order to maintain our ability to provide unbundled, ultra-low fares, Swoop has introduced an Air Passenger Protection Regulation (APPR) surcharge of $2.95 per traveller, per flight. The surcharge provides compensation funds for Swoop travellers experiencing irregular operations that are within the airlines control and not related to safety. This enables us to both comply with government regulations and keep our base fares low for all Canadians. For more info on the APPR surcharge, visit here.
You may also see a NAV Canada surcharge. NAV Canada is Canada's air traffic control operator, responsible for Canada's civil air navigation system. This surcharge is for air traffic control services and will be between $5 and $7 per traveller per direction depending on flight duration.
You will see both charges clearly laid out on your receipt breakdown.
