TORONTO — Sunwing is bringing back another weekly flight from Halifax to Varadero as demand increases in the Maritimes.
Amid easing border measures beginning on Feb. 28, the tour operator will be offering East Coast residents weekly Thursday service between the two destinations starting on March 10, 2022 and running until April 28, 2022.
“As the only Atlantic Canada gateway offering flights to Cuba this winter, we’re thrilled to be introducing another flight from Halifax to Varadero for our customers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to enjoy,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “As a Canadian favourite and easy entry destination, we’re seeing pent-up customer demand for vacations to Varadero with increasingly limited availability for the duration of winter, so now is the time to book. With flexible change policies, medical coverage and this new convenient flight option from Halifax, we’re excited to help our Maritimes customers make the most of this season and enjoy a seamless vacation experience under our wing.”
In addition to the weekly flight, customers in the Maritimes can benefit from existing flight service to Varadero on Saturdays until April 30, 2022.
The return of Thursday’s weekly direct flight marks another milestone in Sunwing’s return to Cuba. A wide range of vacation packages is available, plus customers have the flexibility to change their plans anytime with no fees up to seven days before departure. Comprehensive travel insurance options, including emergency COVID-19 medical coverage and quarantine expenses, are available starting at $4 a day.
