Sunwing to launch new flights from Halifax to St. Petersburg this winter

TORONTO — Sunwing will offer a new vacation destination from Halifax this winter with the addition of weekly nonstop flights to St. Petersburg, Florida.

Sales are already strong for the recently-introduced flights departing on Wednesdays from Feb. 5, 2014 until April 30, 2014, thanks to great introductory rates on flights and packages ranging from one to four weeks in duration.

Clients who book their winter vacation package to St. Petersburg now can also benefit from price protection with Sunwing’s Price Drop Guarantee and pay a reduced deposit of just $50 per person.

“We are excited that Sunwing Airlines will be making it easy for Canadians from Halifax and surrounding areas to reach our award-winning destination this winter by offering nonstop flights to St. Petersburg,” said Jeff Clauss, Director of Air Service Development & Marketing at the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport.

“We have enjoyed many seasons of Sunwing Airlines’ service from Toronto and are happy they have chosen to expand their program by adding a new gateway from the Maritimes.”

Sunwing offers a wide range of accommodations to suit all tastes and budgets. Most packages include an Alamo car rental for added convenience, as well as the option to purchase tickets for popular attractions like Busch Gardens.

The diverse holiday experience of St. Petersburg and Clearwater make this new destination the perfect choice for everyone, including families, golfers, shoppers, birdwatchers and sports fans. Groups can also benefit from additional discounts with as few as 10 people travelling together.
