Sunwing has announced new Cuba flights out of Sault Ste. Marie and North Bay, Ontario launching this winter.

Sunwing is returning to Sault Ste. Marie Airport with Varadero, Cuba as a new destination offering. The weekly flights will operate between 12DEC, 2019 and 9APR, 2020.

"We are delighted that our service out of Sault Ste. Marie has been so well-received. As a result of ongoing support from residents, we’re excited to be returning to Sault Ste. Marie Airport for the 12th consecutive season and providing convenient access to one of the most popular vacation destinations this winter," said President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, Andrew Dawson.

Travellers have a range of resort options to choose from, like the family-friendly Grand Memories Varadero or the adults-only Melia Las Antillas. Iberostar Tainos is another popular choice in Varadero, with plenty of resort-offered activities like snorkelling and dance lessons.

North Bay is getting a new Sunwing flight service to Cayo Santa Maria. The weekly departures direct from YYB operate between 17DEC, 2019 and 7APR, 2020.

“We are excited to be returning to North Bay for an eighth consecutive season and offering residents new flights to explore this exciting destination this winter," said Dawson. "Cayo Santa Maria is a favourite destination for Canadian travellers and we’re sure vacationers from the North Bay region will be eager to take advantage of this sunny retreat.”

Families travelling to Cayo Santa Maria can choose to stay at the Starfish Cayo Santa Maria, which features spacious accommodations with complimentary baby, kids and teen clubs, or Memories Paraiso, a resort offering special rates for children, a supervised kids club and a kids pool.

Couples may prefer the award-winning Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, an adults only oasis situated on a white-sand beach featuring varied dining and elegant rooms.
