TORONTO — For the first time ever, Sunwing will be offering direct flights from Thunder Bay to Punta Cana starting this winter.
The airline is returning to the Canadian gateway for a ninth season this coming winter with the addition of new weekly, nonstop service to Punta Cana, which will operate between Dec. 19, 2018 and March 27, 2019.
In addition, Sunwing is bringing back its popular winter flight services to Varadero, Cuba from Nov. 6, 2018 to March 26, 2019, and Cancun, Mexico from Dec. 24, 2018 to April 1, 2019.
With these latest flights, vacationers departing from Thunder Bay will enjoy convenient and direct access to what the company says are its three most popular vacation destinations.
