Sunwing is returning to Tobago for the upcoming winter season, according to a statement from the Canadian travel company.
The move comes after what Sunwing called an “immensely successful” inaugural season in the 2018-2019 peak winter season.
Sunwing, which will be running flights from Toronto to Tobago from Dec. 19 through April 16, 2020, will remain the only Canadian leisure carrier operating flights to Tobago.
“The return of Sunwing’s winter service to Tobago is great news for tourism in Tobago,” said Louis Lewis, CEO for the Tobago Tourism Agency. “This follows a very strong performance for the inaugural season in 2018/19 where our overall arrivals increased by 10%. We welcome the service and look forward to building a strong partnership with the airline to support growing arrivals from the Canadian market.”
Sunwing’s Caribbean portfolio includes the new Starfish Tobago Resort, which opened last year.
“We are excited to be returning to the island of Tobago for a second season and offering residents of the Greater Toronto Area with even more ways to Vacation Better. We’re certain that the island’s lush landscapes, untouched beaches and tropical rainforests will continue to be a big draw for our customers this coming season.”
