Sunwing to resume winter sun flights from Sudbury and North Bay

TORONTO — Sunwing will be heading back to Sudbury and North Bay this winter with vacation packages to popular sun destinations

Beginning in December 2021, flights from Greater Sudbury Airport and North Bay Jack Garland Airport will run weekly until mid-April 2022. 

Service between North Bay and Cancun will operate Thursdays from Dec. 16, 2021 until April 14, 2022, and between Sudbury and Varadero on Fridays from Dec. 17, 2021 until April 15, 2022.

“We’re excited to be returning to Sudbury and North Bay this winter and offering Northern Ontarians seamless vacation experiences under our wing,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “Our seasonal flight services from Sudbury and North Bay have been consistently well received over the years. With convenient flights from their regional airports, travellers will be able to spend less time getting to their destination and more time soaking up the sun in paradise.

Todd Tripp, Chief Executive Officer at Greater Sudbury Airport, added: “After a difficult year of staying home and not travelling, we’re sure that residents of Sudbury and the surrounding area will be looking forward to enjoying some much-deserved rest and relaxation in paradise.”



And Jack Santerre, Airport Manager for North Bay Jack Garland Airport Corporation, said: “We’re pleased that our residents will be provided with convenient travel options from their regional gateway. With weekly flights to Cancun it’ll now be easier than ever for travellers in North Bay and the surrounding area to head south this winter.”

Once in Cancun, North Bay residents can stay at the family-friendly Grand Sunset Princess All Suites Resort and Spa or the budget-friendly Riu Dunamar, which offers exclusive RIU-topia amenities like unlimited reservation-free dining. 

In Sudbury, clients can soak up the sun on Cuba’s world-famous beaches at Grand Memories Varadero, which offers complimentary water sports like windsurfing and catamaran rides.

Plus, clients who book their tropical getaway at select resorts by May 31, 2021 for travel between Nov. 1, 2021 and April 30, 2022 will receive up to $1,000 per couple in value during Sunwing’s extended Freedom 21/22 Sale, which includes complimentary Price Drop Cash Back of up to $800 per couple at select resorts and the flexibility to change or cancel their plans with ease.

Last month, Sunwing also released its Atlantic Canada winter schedule featuring popular sun destinations like Cancun, Montego Bay, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana and more. The tour operator also announced its return to Thunder Bay this winter with packages to Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
