TORONTO — Sunwing’s winter sun flights from Atlantic Canada are back for another season.
Sunwing says it will offer convenient weekly flights from Halifax, Moncton, Fredericton, St. John’s, Deer Lake and Gander.
Flights will operate from January through May 2023.
Says Deana Murphy, Sunwing’s VP of Retail Sales: “It’s been a difficult few years for the entire travel industry, particularly in New Brunswick and Newfoundland, where long-lasting travel restrictions have unfortunately prevented us from offering our winter flight program since March 2020, much to our disappointment. Now that all travel measures have been lifted as of October 1, 2022, we are excited to be back and doubling down on our commitment to the regions with weekly winter flights to a variety of popular sun destinations.”
Sunwing’s winter schedule announcement for Halifax in Nova Scotia, Moncton and Fredericton in New Brunswick, and St. John’s, Deer Lake and Gander in Newfoundland comes on the heels of the tour operator’s recent winter schedule for four larger airports across the country, announced last week, and amid increasing customer demand for winter travel that is seeing capacity growing by more than 140% over last year.
“We are thrilled to return to Atlantic Canada and share our winter flight lineup, which will help make it easier for our customers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland to head to the tropics this winter season,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing.
“We have a longstanding commitment in eastern Canada and are proud of being able to connect residents across the region with flights to a wide selection of destinations, including customer favourites such as Cancun, Punta Cana and Varadero, plus newer destinations being offered out of Halifax this year, including Cayo Largo, Cuba and Melbourne, Florida. With travel rebounding and demand for all inclusive travel continuing to rise, we encourage our customers to book early to save more under our wing during the peak winter travel months,” added Dawson.
Sunwing’s latest sale, the Save More Event, offers savings worth up to 40% off packages to Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. The booking deadline is Nov. 6, 2022, and the travel window is Nov. 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023.
