Canadian travel company Sunwing is launching a pair of new nonstop routes to destinations in Mexico.
The carrier will be launching new weekly flights from Victoria, British Columbia to Mazatlan and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.
The Mazatlan flights will run on Saturdays from Dec. 21 through March 28, 2020, while the new flights to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo will run from Dec. 22 to March 29, 2020.
Sunwing now flies from Victoria to four destinations in Mexico: Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mazatlan, Huatulco and Los Cabos.
“We are excited to be returning to Victoria International Airport and expanding our operations in the region with the addition of two new flight services this winter. We’re sure the destinations of Mazatlán and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo will be well received by residents of the Greater Victoria region,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations at Sunwing.
Mazatlan is an increasingly popular travel destination for Canadians, leading carriers like Sunwing to continue to ramp up their service to the city.
“We’re pleased to welcome Sunwing’s new flights to Mazatlán and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and we appreciate their commitment to this market,” said Geoff Dickson, President and Chief Executive of the Victoria Airport Authority. “We know the Greater Victoria community enjoys travelling to sun-spot destinations during the winter months and the convenience these new non-stop services allows them to get to their destination sooner to start enjoying their vacations.”
