Sunwing adds direct flights from Thunder Bay to Cancun next winter

TORONTO — Mexico’s Caribbean coastline will become a short flight away next winter for residents of Northern Ontario, as Sunwing adds direct weekly flights from Thunder Bay to Cancun, beginning Dec. 23, 2015.

The new route will be the only option to fly direct to Cancun from Thunder Bay, and will be offered in addition to the weekly flight service to Varadero, Cuba that Sunwing has been operating over the past five years.

Stretching down Mexico’s Caribbean coastline for 150 km as far as Tulum, Cancun and Riviera Maya are among the most popular tourism destinations in the Americas.

“We are delighted to be able to offer a second Sunwing service to the sun from Thunder Bay this coming winter,” said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer, Sunwing Travel Group. “Cancun and the Riviera Maya are amongst our most popular tourism destinations and have much to offer vacationers, so we are sure that this new route will be embraced.”

Sunwing offers some exclusive resort options when vacationing in the Riviera Maya. A new addition to Sunwing’s Family Collection, the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa caters to vacationers seeking plentiful activities and a wide array of amenities. Families can also look forward to a number of extras including beach towels delivered to their room, spacious family accommodation and Kids Stay, Play and Eat Free deals. The supervised Kids Club keeps the little ones busy, while the Teen Club offers video games, billiards, table tennis, and free WiFi. Nine on-site restaurants provide a wide range of à la carte and buffet dining options.

Part of Sunwing’s Luxury Collection, The Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun  is a ‘resort-within-a-resort’ featuring a serene oasis where adults can relax and be pampered, while offering full access to all the facilities of the Royalton Riviera Cancun. With a variety of spacious suites to choose from, The Hideaway provides guests with 24-hour room service, a private balcony or terrace, in-room Jacuzzi and rain shower.

The Grand Sunset Princess All Suites Resort and Spa is part of Sunwing’s exclusive Family and Luxury Collections and also offers a ‘hotel-within-a-hotel’ concept with its Family Club section.

A week’s stay at the Grand Sunset Princess All Suites Resort and Spa is available from $1,395 plus $392 taxes per person based on two people sharing a Junior Suite on an all-inclusive basis and departing from Thunder Bay on Jan. 6, 2016.
