TORONTO — Sunwing is adding new weekly flights from Saskatoon to Mazatlan this winter, with Thursday departures running Dec. 21, 2017 to March 29, 2018 inclusive.

Sunwing is also heading back to Charlottetown for the ninth consecutive season, with Monday flights to Puerto Plata starting Feb. 12 and running until May 14.
