The incident occurred just after 7 p.m. CST yesterday evening. A small, single engine plane went down shortly after takeoff.
According to the city, the occupants of the plane had been headed to Regina.
"The city would like to express our sincere condolences to the family/families of the individuals who were killed in the crash. We will have no further comment on this incident," a news release said.
The two had stopped in Swift Current about 45 minutes prior to their departure.
Swift Current's airport is not staffed during the evenings due to its small size, but the two likely stopped to fuel up or for a rest, a spokesperson for the city said.
The plane crashed about half a mile out from the airport in the eastbound direction.
The plane is registered in Calgary though it is not yet known where the flight originated.
Investigation is ongoing.
