After a successful inaugural season in 2018-2019, Sunwing has announced it will be returning to Tobago this winter with weekly direct flights from Toronto.
Sunwing is the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer direct flights to the destination, with flights operating weekly from Dec. 19, 2019 until April 16, 2020.
And Sunwing’s direct flight service to Tobago has had a positive effect on the island’s tourism industry, with arrivals increasing throughout Sunwing’s inaugural season.
Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for Sunwing, observed, “We are excited to be returning to the island of Tobago for a second season and offering residents of the Greater Toronto Area with even more ways to Vacation Better. We’re certain that the island’s lush landscapes, untouched beaches and tropical rainforests will continue to be a big draw for our customers this coming season.”
Louis Lewis, CEO for the Tobago Tourism Agency, noted, “The return of Sunwing’s winter service to Tobago is great news for tourism in Tobago. This follows a very strong performance for the inaugural season in 2018-2019 where our overall arrivals increased by 10%. We welcome the service and look forward to building a strong partnership with the airline to support growing arrivals from the Canadian market.”
