Sunwing Ramps Up Winter 2022-2023 Capacity
As demand continues to grow, Sunwing is ramping up its capacity on its winter 2022-2023 schedule. It had released its initial winter schedule to four of Canada’s larger airports back in September.
For the first time in over two years, Sunwing is returning to 12 more airports this winter and now offering flights to the sun from a total of 26 gateways from coast to coast.
From major city centres to airport operations in regions including Atlantic Canada, the Prairies, Northern Ontario and Québec, Sunwing will continue to offer the most direct flights to sun destinations, with overall capacity well over double that of the previous winter season.
In light of the pent-up demand for travel to sun destinations, Sunwing is adding weekly flights from Toronto and Montreal to La Romana, located along the south-eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, starting in December.
Flights from Toronto to La Romana will operate on Sundays starting Dec.18, 2022 until April 2, 2023, and from Montreal on Sundays starting Dec. 4, 2022 until April 2, 2023.
Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, said: “We’re thrilled to see that customer demand for travel this winter is not slowing down but continues to intensify following the government’s removal of travel measures, and we’re meeting customer expectations by continuing to add more routes and destinations for the upcoming season, providing Canadians with more options and greater value on their all inclusive sun vacations.”
Dawson continued: “We’re excited to add the beautiful Caribbean destination of La Romana in the Dominican Republic as part of our winter lineup. This is in addition to new and expanding destinations we announced in recent weeks, including Cayo Largo in Cuba, Melbourne in Florida and Freeport in Grand Bahama. We’re already seeing several resorts across the destinations we offer booking up early. With all the pent-up demand for travel, customers should book soon to guarantee their preferred spot in paradise for the busy holiday and winter season.”
The addition of La Romana to Sunwing’s flight schedule follows the announcement of several exciting new and expanding destinations in recent weeks. This includes Cayo Largo, Sunwing’s newest addition in the customer favourite destination of Cuba.
What’s more, Sunwing has its largest Florida offering ever this year with three destinations now available. This includes flights to Miami and Orlando, plus the newest destination of Melbourne, located along Florida’s Space Coast.
Flights from Toronto to Melbourne will take place on Saturdays and Wednesdays starting Dec. 10, 2022, from Winnipeg on Saturdays starting Dec. 10, 2022 and from Halifax on Fridays starting Feb. 10, 2023.
The tour operator is also returning to the destination of Freeport, Grand Bahama, with weekly flights from Toronto and Montreal starting Dec. 17, 2022.
