Sunwing has announced plans to return to Cuba starting in October, timed for the island’s tourism reopening.
The Canadian travel giant will be offering weekly flights to popular destinations including Varadero and Cayo Coco beginning in the second week of October.
That includes flights from Toronto to Varadero and Cayo Coco starting on Oct. 8 and 9, respectively, along with flights from Montreal to Varadero and Cayo Coco starting on Oct. 8 and 16, respectively .
On Nov. 2, Sunwing will relaunch service from Calgary and Edmonton to Varadero.
The route map will expand, the company said, with “more Canadian departure gateways and popular Cuban destinations are expected to be added to reflect evolving consumer demand.”
“We’re thrilled to be helping our customers head back to the sunny shores of Cuba this fall under our wing,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations at Sunwing. “Cuba has been an integral part of our operations ever since our inaugural flight took off from Toronto to Varadero in 2005. Our Cuba program has continued to grow since then, and has been one of our most popular destinations over the past decade. The resort towns of Varadero and Cayo Coco both offer serene beach locations and secluded tourist areas for a relaxing retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of larger cities.”
