Punta Cana is consistently one of our most popular vacation hotspots and we are sure that it will become a perennial favorite with our customers in Thunder Bay for many years to come.”

The launch is part of a wider expansion to Punta Cana by Sunwing, including new flights to the Dominican Republic’s most popular destination rom both Sept-Iles and Val-d’Or, Quebec.
