Sunwing partners with Swoop from five Canadian gateways

TORONTO — Sunwing has announced a new agreement with Swoop where vacationers departing from Hamilton, London, Abbotsford, Edmonton and Winnipeg can now book vacation packages with the tour operator that include a Swoop flight.

“Saving our customers time and money by providing convenient, direct flight services from their local airport has always been a key priority for us,” says Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “Sunwing Airlines already offers flights to over 45 of the most popular sun destinations from over 30 departure airports coast to coast. With this new agreement, even more Canadians will be able to experience our top-rated resorts (including leading chains such as Royalton Luxury Resorts, RIU Hotels & Resorts, Planet Hollywood Hotels & Resorts) as part of a valued-added vacation package departing from their local airport.”

All Sunwing vacation packages with Swoop flights include one complimentary item of checked luggage, round-trip airport to hotel transfers, assistance from Sunwing Experiences representatives throughout, the option to benefit from savings by pre-purchasing Sunwing Experiences excursions at the time of booking and more.

“It’s a privilege to be entrusted with carrying Sunwing travellers onboard Swoop flights to our extensive network in Mexico,” said Steven Greenway, President, Swoop. “Partnering with a well-respected tour operator who shares our vision of making travel affordable and more accessible is a welcome opportunity for Canadians who want to travel more.”

The deal includes a new departure airport, Abbotsford, with twice-weekly flights to Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta. Cancun is within easy reach for Sunwing customers in London with twice-weekly Swoop flights.

From Hamilton both Sunwing and Swoop offer regular service to Cancun. Passengers now have a choice of four different departure days each week, including both Saturday and Sunday.

From Edmonton, passengers get additional weekend departure options to reach Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta. And from Winnipeg, passengers heading to Los Cabos will see their departure day choices tripled, with new flights departing Sundays and Wednesdays.
