Sunwing Airlines will increase its flying schedule from Winnipeg by adding direct flights to Grand Bahama this winter and further expanding its operation from the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport by opening a seasonal base. The opening of this base will result in recruitment of more than 60 crew members from within the local community. Sunwing has been operating from Winnipeg since 2006 when it introduced direct flights to Cancun, Mexico. Today, the airline takes Winnipeg travellers to several popular vacation hotspots in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico and now Grand Bahama.
Sunwing will offer weekly flights to Grand Bahama starting Jan. 18, 2014 until the end of March. A one-week all-inclusive vacation to Grand Bahama starts from $1,395 plus $350 taxes p.p. to Memories Grand Bahama, departing on Feb. 22 or March 1. (http://www.sunwing.ca)
