Sunwing is adding a new Quebec gateway for this coming winter. Beginning 21DEC and operating weekly until 22MAR, travellers will be able to depart from Mont-Joli (YYY), in the Bas St-Laurent region, to the popular destination Punta Cana.
This will be the first time that local residents have had the opportunity to travel to a sun destination from their local airport. The addition of the new gateway by Sunwing also means Quebecers will have six different airport options across the province this winter.
“Providing our customers with the option to save time and money by departing from their local airport has long been a priority for us at Sunwing and we are delighted to be offering vacation packages from Mont-Joli for the first time,” said Sam Char, Executive Director of Sunwing Vacations Quebec.
“Punta Cana is consistently one of our most popular destinations and we are sure that it will be well received by residents of Mont-Joli seeking a tropical escape this winter.”
Mme Lavoie, President of Mont-Joli Regional Airport added, “For several years, the people of Bas St-Laurent /Gaspésie have been asking for flights to sun destinations from Mont-Joli. Today, we are very excited to welcome the arrival of Sunwing, a reputable tour operator offering vacations in beautiful destinations. This new addition will also benefit nearby businesses."
