Elite Island Resorts key to ACV’s Sun expansion, says Montagnese

MONTREAL — Air Canada Vacations’ partnership with Elite Island Resorts will be a “vital contributor” as ACV expands its Sun product line.

“Air Canada Vacations’ collaboration with Elite Island Resorts has allowed us to bring our trade partners and clients exceptional, all-inclusive properties in Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados and the Grenadines,” said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director, Sun Markets, Air Canada Vacations. “Packages to these destinations coincide nicely with our flight network which is constantly growing to accommodate new routes, and increased capacity and frequency to popular destinations in the Caribbean.”

In Antigua, ACV offers packages to The Verandah Resort & Spa; St. James’s Club & Villas; Pineapple Beach Club; Jolly Beach Resort & Spa and Galley Bay Resort & Spa with year-round, as well as increased seasonal service, out of Toronto onboard Air Canada.

“We are particularly pleased with the recent updates at the all-inclusive Pineapple Beach Club,” added Montagnese. “This beachfront resort underwent a US$4 million renovation propelling it to four-star, adults-only status offering excellent rates and value for travel agents’ clients.”

Galley Bay is a 4.5-star, adults-only, all-inclusive boutique property located on a secluded stretch of beach, ideal for wedding vacations.
