Sunwing has partnered with global healthcare company Medcan to advise on the operator's "Safe with Sunwing" COVID-19 program.
As Sunwing resumes operations over the coming months, the tour operator will rely on Medcan's expertise to help promote a safe and healthy return to travel for Canadians.
“As Canadians return to responsible travel over the months ahead, we are committed to earning their trust so that they can vacation safely and with peace of mind,” said Samantha Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer of Sunwing Travel Group.
“By partnering with Medcan, we are reinforcing our promise to customers that their entire vacation experience can be enjoyed with a top-to-bottom commitment to safety, from check-in to the flight, transfers, hotel stay and the journey home.”
Dr. Peter Nord, Chief Medical Officer at Medcan, will now act as Sunwing’s Chief Medical Advisor, providing guidance and support on all aspects of the Safe with Sunwing program. Medcan's Medical Advisory Services Team (MAST), a group of physicians with expertise in a broad range of disciplines, will also support the program.
“We’re pleased to be partnering with Sunwing, sharing our comprehensive medical expertise and helping Canadians get back to travelling safely,” said Dr. Nord. “With so much uncertainty, we’re keen to offer reassurance and advice to ease any concerns Canadians may have by providing a science-based approach to health and safety.”
