Sunwing Is Adding More Travel Destinations in Cuba
Sunwing is set to launch a new push for Cuba travel this coming winter season, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The Canadian travel giant is adding 23 percent capacity for Cuba for the 2023-2024 winter schedule, highlighted by what it called “a marked expansion” in flight service to the island of Cayo Largo.
Sunwing is also adding two new destinations: Cienfuegos and Manzanillo de Cuba.
“As the leading vacation provider in Canada, we’re thrilled to deliver more vacation packages and flights to Canadians this winter season, including furthering our commitment to servicing our customers in key regions such as Atlantic Canada and the Prairies,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations at Sunwing. “We are growing capacity from last winter and thrilled to be returning to pre-pandemic travel levels, with more great packages and affordable travel options available to our valued customers this winter, including Cienfuegos and Manzanillo de Cuba which are new for this year.”
The company’s expansion is a strong sign for travel to the Caribbean this winter, matched by apparent optimism by major air carriers in the United States, nearly all of whom are significantly ramping up flights to the region for the peak travel season.
More broadly, Sunwing is increasing its overall capacity to sun destinations this winter by more than 15 percent, including ramped-up service to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
