Sunwing will be adding weekly
flights from Thunder Bay to Cancun, beginning 23DEC.
Sunwing says the new route
will be the only option to fly direct to Cancun from Thunder Bay, and will be
offered in addition to their weekly flight service to VRA they have been
operating over the past 5 years.
“We are delighted to be able
to offer a 2nd Sunwing service to the sun from Thunder Bay this
coming winter,” said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer, Sunwing Travel
Group. “Cancun and the Riviera Maya are amongst our most popular tourism
destinations and have much to offer vacationers, so we are sure that this new
route will be embraced.”
“We are excited by Sunwing’s
demonstration of additional confidence in our market,” said Ed Schmidtke,
interim President & CEO of Thunder Bay International Airport Authority.
“Our market has a positive history of supporting Sunwing and we look forward to
a successful 2015/16 winter campaign.”
Sunwing-owned properties will
be among the options for Northern Ontario travellers, including the new
Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa, part of the operator’s Family
Collection. That property is also home to The Hideaway at Royalton Riviera
Cancun, a ‘resort-within-a-resort’ that is part of Sunwing’s Luxury Collection.
Another choice is The Grand Sunset Princess All Suites Resort and Spa,
which is included in both Sunwing’s Family and Luxury collections.
