Sunwing announces new points promo on the heels of Mazatlan FAM

TORONTO — Following the success of its first ever mega FAM trip to Mazatlan earlier this month, Sunwing has announced double STAR points for agents on all new bookings to this Pacific Mexican destination.

The promotion runs until Oct. 23 and is valid for departures from Nov. 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019.

The new comes just days after 161 top-selling agents from both Toronto and Montreal travelled to Mazatlan on Oct. 11 on Sunwing’s new Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplane. Over the following three days, they visited the destination’s most popular hotels, toured its historic downtown, enjoyed a special performance at the historic Angela Peralta Theatre, and attended a formal dinner at El Cid El Moro Beach hotel. Accommodations were provided by Riu Emerald Bay, where agents were welcomed with a cocktail reception and a private dinner on the beach.

“We would like to thank the local tourist board and our hotel and destination partners for their assistance and warm hospitality during the FAM trip,” said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer for Sunwing Travel Group, who was present on the trip. “With the introduction of our new direct flight service from Montreal this coming winter, we will be offering Mazatlan from eight different airports coast to coast. We look forward to introducing even more Canadians to this authentic Mexican destination this season.”

Vice President of Sales Deana Murphy also expressed her thanks to agents, adding, “This is the first time that we have ever brought so many agents down to explore the destination of Mazatlan at any one time. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to showcase the destination with our top-selling agents as we increase the number of flights we offer to Mazatlan this winter.”
