Sunwing Travel Group makes the FP500 list

Sunwing will offer flights from Buffalo for second winter season

TORONTO — Following a successful inaugural season during 2015, Sunwing will once again offer weekly, direct flights from Buffalo to Cancun, Mexico and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic this coming winter.

Providing travellers with a convenient, direct route to two of the Caribbean’s most sought after destinations, the new flight program will begin Jan. 16, 2016.

“We were extremely pleased to have the opportunity to offer Sunwing flights from Buffalo for the first time last year,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing Vacations. “These were the first international flights to be offered from here since 2001 and we were delighted with how well the service was received by customers on both sides of the border. Punta Cana and Cancun are consistently two of our most popular vacation hotspots. We’re certain that our second season will be just as successful as the first.”

The return of the winter flight service will allow vacationers to experience some of Sunwing’s most popular resorts.  Part of Sunwing’s Luxury Collection, Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa features spacious rooms and suites overlooking a secluded, private beachfront.

In the Dominican Republic, Memories Splash Punta Cana was recently recognized by TripAdvisor as one of the Top 10 family all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean.

A week’s stay at Memories Splash Punta Cana is available from $1,195 plus $200 taxes based on two people sharing a Deluxe Room on an all-inclusive basis and departing from Buffalo on Jan. 16 and 23, 2016. For more information, visit
