Flights to tropical destinations through Sunwing will be available again this winter, the airline announced Monday.
Vacation packages to popular tropical destinations are being offered from Jack Garland Airport in North Bay and Greater Sudbury Airport.
Flights will begin in December and run weekly until mid-April.
“We’re excited to be returning to Sudbury and North Bay this winter and offering Northern Ontarians seamless vacation experiences under our wing,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for Sunwing, in a release.
“Our seasonal flight services from Sudbury and North Bay have been consistently well-received over the years,” Dawson noted. “With convenient flights from their regional airports, travellers will be able to spend less time getting to their destination and more time soaking up the sun in paradise.”
Flights will be leaving North Bay for Cancun, Mexico, on Thursdays from Dec. 16 to April 14.
“We’re pleased that our residents will be provided with convenient travel options from their regional gateway,” said Jack Santerre, manager of the North Bay airport. “With weekly flights to Cancun, it’ll now be easier than ever for travellers in North Bay and the surrounding area to head south this winter.”
North Bay residents headed to Cancun can stay at Grand Sunset Princess All Suites Resort and Spa, offering activities and amenities for all ages. Vacationers looking to take their budget even further can enjoy exclusive RIU-topia amenities at Riu Dunamar, such as unlimited reservation-free dining.
Flights from Sudbury to Varadero, Cuba, will be offered on Fridays from Dec. 17 until April 15.
Travellers can relax at Grand Memories Varadero and “enjoy complimentary water sports like windsurfing and catamaran rides,” the vacation company said.
Sunwing said customers who book their getaway at select resorts by May 31 will receive up to $1,000 per couple in value during an extended Freedom 21/22 sale, which includes cash-back of up to $800 per couple and the flexibility to change or cancel plans.
As the largest integrated travel company in North America, Sunwing said it offers more flights to the south than any other leisure carrier, with direct service from airports across Canada to popular sun destinations across the U.S.A., Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
“This scale enables Sunwing to offer customers exclusive deals at top-rated resorts in the most popular vacation destinations as well as cruise packages and seasonal domestic flight service,” the airline said.
