Sunwing: A Necessary Decision

In a statement issued following Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement on Jan. 29, Sunwing said that: “Further to the Government of Canada’s announcement this morning (Jan. 29), Sunwing, along with all other major Canadian airlines and tour operators, has made the decision to suspend flights to all sun destinations until April 30, 2021.”

The company indicated that: “This decision was not made lightly but something we deemed necessary as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is based on ongoing collaboration with the government and the Canadian aviation industry.”

And it continued: “We are working to notify customers currently in destination about any changes to their existing flights and those with upcoming vacation bookings on the cancelled flight schedule. In addition, any customers with cancelled bookings will be provided a full refund to the original form of payment.”

Sunwing’s statement concluded: “We look forward to planning for our eventual return to service in the spring and making more travellers’ vacation dreams come true.”
