Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — Sunwing is expanding its Florida lineup with new seasonal service to Daytona Beach from Toronto.
Sunwing will be the only Canadian carrier to offer direct international flights to Daytona Beach, with twice weekly flights operating Mondays and Thursdays starting Jan. 28, 2019.
“Our flight services to Florida have been consistently well received so we’re delighted to be able to add this popular destination. Daytona Beach is a great option for those seeking anything from excellent dining and shopping to beach escapes,” says Sunwing’s VP USA and Cruises, Reg Mendes.
Airport Director for Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), Rick Karl, says Sunwing’s new flights will provide improved access to the destination’s top international travel market and bring international airline service to DAB for the first time in over 20 years. “Daytona Beach International Airport is thrilled to welcome Sunwing to our community. We look forward to growing our partnership for years to come.”
Executive Director for the Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Lori Campbell Baker, echoed Karl’s enthusiasm: “We’ve been so fortunate to have worked closely with the Sunwing team over the past several years, and we’re all looking forward to a highly successful and long-lasting partnership.”
Resort options include the family-friendly Residence Inn Marriott Daytona Beach Oceanfront, with spacious suites equipped with kitchens, living rooms and balconies with ocean views, as well as a pool just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean.
Families can also enjoy the peaceful settings of Oceanside Inn Daytona Beach, says Sunwing. The laid-back hotel is within easy reach of many of Daytona’s attractions, yet secluded enough to offer a relaxing getaway. Attentive staff on hand can also help arrange activities like pontoon boating, bike rentals and more.
There’s also Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort. Located on Daytona’s legendary beachfront, the four star resort offers a beautiful spa, two pools and hot tubs, varied dining and more, notes Sunwing.
