Sunwing Taking Off From Halifax To Varadero

Sunwing is expanding its flight service from Halifax to Varadero, Cuba.

Beginning in March, Sunwing will be offering East Coast residents another weekly flight on Thursdays starting on March 10, 2022 until April 28, 2022.

Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for Sunwing, said: “As the only Atlantic Canada gateway offering flights to Cuba this winter, we’re thrilled to be introducing another flight from Halifax to Varadero for our customers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to enjoy.”

And Dawson added: “As a Canadian favourite and easy entry destination, we’re seeing pent-up customer demand for vacations to Varadero with increasingly limited availability for the duration of winter, so now is the time to book. With flexible change policies, medical coverage and this new convenient flight option from Halifax, we’re excited to help our Maritimes customers make the most of this season and enjoy a seamless vacation experience under our wing.”

In addition to weekly flights on Thursdays, Maritimes customers can benefit from existing flight service to Varadero on Saturdays until April 30, 2022.

The return of Thursday’s weekly direct flight is another step forward for the tour operator’s return to Cuba and a positive sign of Canadians’ growing eagerness to travel.
