Sunwing’s rapid Caribbean flight expansion has continued with the planned launch of another new service from Canada to Cuba.
Sunwing will be launching a new route between Ontario’s North Bay and Cuba’s Cayo Santa Maria beginning Dec. 17.
The new weekly flight will run through April 7, 2020, according to the company.
Cayo Santa Maria, long one of the most popular Cuban destinations for Canadians, is a cay off the northern coast of Cuba.
“We are excited to be returning to North Bay for an eighth consecutive season and offering residents new flights to explore this exciting destination this winter,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations at Sunwing. “Cayo Santa Maria is a favorite destination for Canadian travelers and we’re sure vacationers from the North Bay region will be eager to take advantage of this sunny retreat.”
Cayo Santa Maria has a large concentration of hotels, led by several from Melia and Sunwing’s Royalton and Starfish brands.
