TORONTO — There’s plenty more sunshine in store for Okanagan residents this winter, thanks to returning flights to Mexico with Sunwing.

Starting mid-December, Sunwing will launch weekly direct routes from Kelowna International Airport to both Cancun and Mazatlán. Kelowna-Cancun will operate Thursdays starting on Dec. 15, 2022 until April 13, 2023, while Kelowna-Mazatlán will fly Fridays from Dec. 16, 2022 to April 14, 2023.

“Our customers in the Okanagan region can explore the depths of Mexico this winter with weekly flights to the popular beach destinations of Cancun and Mazatlán onboard Sunwing Airlines,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. ““From white and golden beaches to iconic attractions, exciting excursions and thriving downtown cores rich with culture, plus our curated selection of all-inclusive resorts designed for every travel style, each destination offers a curated vacation experience we’re thrilled to offer our guests travelling out of Kelowna International Airport, where they can get the vacations they want at a great price.”

In Cancun, guests can book Sandos Playacar as their home base, featuring nine pools, a spa, daily themed beach parties and easy access to shopping and downtown Playa del Carmen. Travellers can also take advantage of last-minute deals when heading to Pacific Mexico this holiday season, with up to 27% in savings when booking Riu Emerald Bay in Mazatlán, home to sparkling pools and an on-site water park.

Plus, on now until Dec. 16, 2022, customers in the Okanagan can book during Sunwing’s 12 Days of Getaways event to gain access to savings of up to $1,500 per couple, on packages to Pacific Mexico destinations, BOGO deals on flights and more, as well as giveaways and the chance to win one of two free all-inclusive vacations, including a stay for two at Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun An Autograph Collection All Inclusive Resort.

In addition, residents can get more value on their getaways when they add one of Sunwing’s exclusive Worry Free coverage options to their booking, offering more change and cancellation protection and more peace of mind for the winter season.
