Sunwing is adding a new destination in the Caribbean, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Beginning Dec. 20, Sunwing will launch its first-ever flights to the island of Tobago.
“We are delighted to be offering our customers even more choice from Toronto this winter with the addition of the island of Tobago,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for Sunwing. “Offering beach relaxation, warm Caribbean hospitality and a wide range of tours and excursions to experience, we’re sure that Tobago will prove to be a popular addition to our roster.”
The seasonal nonstop flights will run on Thursdays through April 18, 2019, making Sunwing the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer direct flights to Tobago.
“The Tobago House of Assembly welcomes Sunwing to Tobago. Sunwing’s flight and hotel package offering will significantly enhance our efforts in tourism at all levels.”
Sunwing said it was working with several hotels on the island as part of its offering, including the Magdalena Grand and the new Starfish Tobago, with the latter set to officially open in December.
