Sunwing is continuing its Caribbean-Mexico expansion with a pair of new routes to the increasingly popular destination of Mazatlan.
The Canadian travel giant is launching direct flights from both Ottawa and Quebec City to Mazatlan, the company announced this week.
The Ottawa flights will run from Dec. 17 through April 14, 2020.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming tourists from Ottawa on the first-ever direct flight service to México’s Only Colonial City on the Beach, a destination with a beautiful mixture of real Mexico culture and 20 kilometers of swimmable beaches”, said Julio Birrueta, Director of the Mazatlán Tourism Board. “Guests will not only have the opportunity to enjoy great seafood, regional cuisine and a wide variety of activities and local tours, but they will also find authentic hospitality from the local mazatlecos”, he added.
The new Quebec City will launch Dec. 17 as well, running through April 14, 2020.
“We are delighted to be offering this pristine Pacific Mexican destination to our customers in Quebec City this winter. Mazatlán offers an enticing blend of culture, heritage and natural beauty and we’re sure it will be a popular choice,” said Sam Char, executive vice president for Sunwing Travel Group in Quebec.
Mazatlan has been seeing an increase in airlift from a number of carriers, particularly out of the Canadian market.
