Sunwing launches new flight from Charlottetown to Holguin

TORONTO — Sunwing is launching a new flight service from Charlottetown to Holguin, Cuba this week.

Lapped by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the white sand beaches that encircle the town of Holguin are perfect for sunbathing, snorkelling or enjoying a range of water sports. Passengers on the inaugural Charlottetown to Holguin service will also be among the first guests to experience the recently opened all-inclusive Memories Holguin Beach Resort, which is set on an attractive beachfront oasis accented by towering palm trees and lush gardens. Expansive pools stretch throughout the property.

Accommodations range from double rooms with terraces to spacious suites with separate living areas. For families, supervised activities at the Kids Club and Teens Lounge are available and seven buffet and à la carte options for meals.

In the evenings, guests are treated to live entertainment, and can mingle at one of six bars, including a Cuban cigar bar.

Chief Operating Officer for the Sunwing Travel Group, Andrew Dawson, commented, “As Canada’s largest tour operator to Cuba, we are excited to expand our services with this new direct route from Charlottetown to Holguin. Holguin is a perennially popular destination amongst our clientele and boasts a wide range of leisure attractions and accommodation choices to suit all tastes. New for this season, we are delighted to offer the Memories Holguin Beach Resort that has plenty to keep both families and couples entertained.”

A week’s stay at the Memories Holguin Beach Resort starts from $655 plus $325 tax per person and is based on two people sharing a Deluxe Room on an all-inclusive basis departing Charlottetown on April 28, 2015.
