Sunwing Adds Four New Summer Flight Services From Calgary
TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – February 19, 2015) – Following an extremely
successful start to the 2014/2015 winter season, Sunwing Vacations is
pleased to announce that it will be increasing its flight service over
the summer months to offer residents of Calgary a number of new
connections to sun destinations.
For summer 2015, the airline will be offering two new direct flights to
Cuba. Vacationers will be able to take advantage of a weekly service to
Cayo Coco, Cuba departing each Wednesday along with a Thursday flight to
Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba. This increase in scheduling is an addition to
the regular Tuesday service to Varadero, Cuba that operated last summer.
Options to explore Mexico over the summer months direct from Calgary
have also been increased, with direct weekly flights to Los Cabos being
introduced to complement the existing weekly services to Cancun and
Puerto Vallarta. In addition, the weekly flight to Grand Bahama that
commenced for the first time in November 2014 will be maintained to run
throughout the summer months. The airport will also continue to benefit
from a direct flight service to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer for the Sunwing Travel Group
commented, “Our flights from Calgary this winter have been extremely
well received and we are delighted to be able to extend our summer
programming to maintain some of the most popular routes all year.”
“We are pleased to see more great additions to our YYC route network,”
added Stephan Poirier, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial
Officer for The Calgary Airport Authority. “Sunwing’s increase in
service means our growing destination list offers even more choices for
our travellers looking to escape to a sun destination.”
The new summer Cancun service will allow vacationers to be amongst the
first travellers to enjoy a summer break at two new resorts exclusive to
Sunwing that opened just before Christmas.
Part of Sunwing’s exclusive Family and Luxury Collections™, the Royalton
Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa boasts 843 luxurious rooms and suites and
