Canadian travel giant Sunwing is relaunching more service to Caribbean hotspots including Cuba and Cancun this winter.
In November, the carrier is resuming a wave of flights from Ottawa to destinations like Mexico, Jamaica, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
That includes the “reimagined” destination of Cayo Largo in Cuba.
The carrier’s Caribbean network will include flights this winter to Cancun, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo and Holguin and Cuba; Los Cabos; Montego Bay; Puerto Plat and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; and Santa Clara and Varadero, Cuba.
“Facing some of the harshest winters in Canada, we’re thrilled to return to our beloved capital this season offering our customers more flights, more direct routes and more sunny destinations they can escape to from Ottawa,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “With the rapid surge for all inclusive travel coupled with Sunwing’s wide variety of affordable vacation packages suited to every vacation style, whether last minute or a quick long weekend getaway, we anticipate the winter season to sell fast, so now is the time for our customers to book.”
Cancun and Punta Cana will see the most weekly flights, with four flights each week.
“Each year, Ottawa-Gatineau vacation planners look forward to Sunwing’s highly anticipated Ottawa winter schedule,” said Mark Laroche, Ottawa International Airport Authority President and CEO. “Sunwing’s exciting list of vacation destinations in Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic is sure to please sun-seekers in Canada’s capital region.”
