Sunwing Off to Playa Blanca


Beginning Aug. 1, Sunwing Airlines will offer year-round direct flights from Toronto to the Playa Blanca Airport (also known as Scarlett Martinez International Airport) in Panama.

This winter, Sunwing will also introduce flights to Playa Blanca Airport from several Quebec gateways, including Montreal starting in November, Quebec City starting in December, and Bagotville starting February 2015.

“The Playa Blanca region is a popular destination with Sunwing travellers and these direct flights will dramatically improve our passengers’ vacation experience,” said Andrew Dawson, COO of Sunwing Travel Group, adding “there will be no more two-hour transfers from the previously used busy hub airport in Panama City. Now the majority of the resorts will be within a 10-minute drive of this new airport, a game changer when making holiday destination choices for our passengers.”

The new flights from Toronto to Playa Blanca Airport will operate weekly starting on Aug. 1, while Montreal flights will begin Nov. 14.
