Now is finally the time to reveal the name of the lucky Flytrippers fan who will get to go somewhere warm, thanks to our free flights giveaway with Swoop.
The giveaway closed last Sunday and first of all we’d like to thank every one who took the time to enter, we appreciate it! We are so glad that you follow us in our quest to find you the best flight deals on our deals page and give you the best travel tips and travel inspiration articles.
We received thousands of entries, so unfortunately, not everyone can win! We hope you stay tuned and keep visiting our site and social media pages as we do have more giveaways planned in the future: we hope next time you get to be the lucky winner!
So just before I tell you the lucky winner’s name, here is a reminder of what the grand prize is:
- 2 roundtrip tickets to anywhere Swoop flies
- Departing from Halifax, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Edmonton or Abbotsford
As you probably know, the weather up here in Canada is going to be bad this winter (like every winter) so the lucky winner will get a chance to escape the cold thanks to Flytrippers and Swoop. Whether the winner chooses to go the US, Mexico or the Caribbean… we’re sure she’ll have a blast! We’ll tell you more about the destinations in a second…
But without further ado, here is the winner: Janna Fraser from Toronto, Ontario !

One of the reasons we wanted to give you a chance to win free flights on Swoop is to give you a chance to discover the Ultra Low-Cost Carrier (ULCC) business model, one that is relatively new to Canada.
Some would be surprised to realize that it’s actually very fun to be onboard, and isn’t inferior to regular airlines by any means when you understand how ULCCs work and when you actually try it yourself instead of believing random commenters online who don’t know what they’re talking about!
By the way, I’ve been on 100+ ULCC flights on 15 different ULCCs, and both Flytrippers co-founders love the fact that we can travel from Canada to Europe, then have 8 additional flights within Europe, and then back to Canada… for $450 TOTAL.
We also got the chance to try Swoop, as we were lucky enough to be on the inaugural flight and we loved the experience. You can see many photos and read about our experience in detail in our Swoop Flight Review.
Even without winning the giveaway, Swoop has fares that are sometimes so ridiculously low that it’s almost as if it was free. Just to give you an example, Swoop often has one-ways under $99. Now that’s cheap (for Canada).
These will always be on our curated deals page so check it out very regularly, as we often spot flights that are literally 50% off the regular price (on Swoop, and all other airlines too).
When looking for your next flight, don’t forget that we also have search tools for your Swoop flights (and all your flight needs) for the times when you can’t wait for a deal on our deals page:
- if you have specific date and destination, use the first flight search tool to find the lowest price
- if you have a specific destination and want to find the cheapest dates, follow these instructions
- if you have specific dates and want to find the cheapest destinations, follow these instructions
