Canadian travel giant Sunwing has launched its first-ever nonstop flights to Bonaire.
The weekly service out of Toronto will operate on Sundays through April 15; it is currently the only nonstop flight between Canada and the Dutch Caribbean island.
“Saving our customers time and money by providing them with direct access to the most popular sunshine destinations is central to our commitment of delivering an exceptional vacation experience,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations at Sunwing. “We are therefore extremely pleased to be able to add this unique Caribbean island to our roster, and are sure that it will prove to be a popular choice amongst our customers.”
The new flights come on the heels of the announcement that American Airlines would be launching new service between Miami and Bonaire this summer.
“We are excited to develop and deepen our partnership with Sunwing,” said Maurice Adriaens, Director of Tourism Corporation Bonaire. “We feel the addition of this flight service, together with the option of vacation packages at many of our most popular resorts, will give Bonaire greater exposure in the Canadian market and ensure the island is amongst the top Caribbean destinations to visit this winter.”
Sunwing offers nonstop flights to more than 40 popular destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
The airline’s fleet includes 40 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
