For the 13th year, Sunwing Travel Group has made PROFIT Magazine’s list of Canada’s “Fastest-Growing Companies” with a five-year growth rate of 156%.
The PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their revenue growth. As the only vertically integrated travel company included on the PROFIT 500 index, Sunwing Travel Group operates a leisure charter airline with a fleet of 40 planes, a luxury charter service with access to private jets, three North American tour operators, two travel retailers, a hotel division with a portfolio exceeding 14,000 rooms, a vacation club and a destination management company.
“Much of our growth across the lines of business can be attributed to the innovation and value we’ve been able to create through vertical integration,” said Stephen Hunter, president and CEO of Sunwing Travel Group, adding “we’ve been re-investing in our employees, retail partners, and our customers, all of whom have been critical to our success.”
With more than 18,000 employees internationally, the company has received many accolades including a position on Forbes Best Employers list for 2017, a place on the Financial Post’s FP500 list, Awards of Excellence from TripAdvisor and consecutive wins of the Consumer’s Choice Award for top leisure airline in key regions across the country.
