Sunwing to return to Tobago this winter for second straight year

TORONTO — Sunwing is heading back to the island of Tobago this winter following a hugely successful inaugural season in 2018/2019.

Starting Dec. 19, weekly direct flights will depart from Toronto and run until April 16, 2020. Sunwing is the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer direct flights to Tobago.

“We are excited to be returning to the island of Tobago for a second season and offering residents of the Greater Toronto Area with even more ways to Vacation Better,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations. “We’re certain that the island’s lush landscapes, untouched beaches and tropical rainforests will continue to be a big draw for our customers this coming season.”

Louis Lewis, CEO for the Tobago Tourism Agency, said Sunwing’s return winter service is “great news” for tourism. “This follows a strong performance for the inaugural season in 2018/2019 where our overall arrivals increased by 10%. We welcome the service and look forward to building a strong partnership with the airline to support growing arrivals from the Canadian market.”

Travellers can choose from several resorts on the island suitable for all ages and budgets. The family-friendly Starfish Tobago Resort offers an action-packed kids club and various dining options, while Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort is best for luxury clients and boasts an 18-hole championship course designed by the PGA.

All Sunwing vacation packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines featuring complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and buy-onboard selection of snacks and light meals.
