Last Thursday, Canadian discount airline Swoop commenced service between London, Ontario and Las Vegas.

The airline offers the new trans-border flights on Thursdays and Saturdays. For the route, Swoop uses the Boeing 737-800, which offers 189 seats all in Economy.

Seats are already on sale for this route. Those interested can buy a ticket directly from Swoop on its website. Flights are available for booking through April 23, 2020.

Swoop offers an unbundled service, which means much lower prices than full-service airlines. If you fly Swoop, expect a no-frills experience: You will not get the same luxuries that other full-service airlines offer. There are extra costs if you want to check a bag, have a drink or eat on the plane or even check in early. However, the flight is only a little over four hours long, so most travelers can justify the no-frills experience for a cheap ticket.

Travelers looking to fly out of London International Airport (YXU) can fly to five other destinations with Swoop. The ultra-low-cost carrier flies to Orlando, Cancun, Edmonton, Halifax and Abbotsford, British Columbia.

Swoop only began offering flights last June and has already grown to offer service to 17 destinations across Canada, the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.

The airline offers unbundled products and services, which allow flyers to control their costs by choosing what they want and what they don't want. This low-cost model is proving to be popular for those who want to simply get to their destination as cheaply as possible and don't want to check a bag, eat on the flight or choose their seat.
