TORONTO — Sunwing’s first direct flight from Ottawa to Los Cabos departed yesterday, marking the first of a weekly flight service direct from Canada’s capital city.
Flights depart every Thursday until April 11, 2019, inclusive. With the addition of the new Los Cabos route, Ottawa residents now have access to 11 flight choices for their winter getaway, including a seasonal flight to Miami, which launched earlier this month.
Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, welcomed the news, saying, “We are delighted to be providing our customers in the Ottawa-Gatineau region with even more ways to Vacation Better this winter. Travellers will be able to enjoy two destinations in one in Los Cabos, with the lively nightlife of Cabo San Lucas and the vibrant art scene of San Jose del Cabo offering something different for travellers of all interests.”
Mark Laroche, Ottawa International Airport Authority President and CEO, added: “Nonstop access to a vibrant destination like Los Cabos is exactly the type of air service that Ottawa-Gatineau residents appreciate and expect from their home airport. We’re thrilled that Sunwing sees the upside of adding more choices to their extensive Ottawa International Airport portfolio.”
In Los Cabos, Sunwing passengers can stay at Riu Palace Baja California, a brand new, adults-only oasis that opened earlier this month, or neighbouring property Riu Santa Fe, a recently renovated beachfront resort featuring a new Splash Water World water park, extensive pool complex with swimup bar and an entertainment zone with weekly adults-only pool parties.
Guests can enjoy exclusive RIU-topia perks when they book either property with Sunwing such as in-room liquor dispensers, unlimited reservation-free dining, spa credits and more.
Also available is the Royal Solaris Los Cabos, a beachfront resort located just a short walk from downtown San Jose Del Cabo. In addition to three pools and a mini water park for kids, families can enjoy such perks as Kids Stay, Play and Eat FREE deals, exclusive pricing for teens, no single parent supplement fee, kids programs and more.
All Sunwing vacation packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines.
