Since the launch of the new winter 2012/13 brochures in early May, Sunwing's business development teams have been tirelessly conducting Travel Agent Roadshows across the country. Tonight (June 13th), Saint John, NB, hosts the 36th and final show of this year's series of shows. Each presentation has also been accompanied by a trade show where hotel and destination partners have had an opportunity to interact one-on-one with attending travel agents.

Travel agent feedback has been extremely positive, with the enhanced Sunwing Airlines schedule, innovative exclusive "Smile" and "Relax" programs, and the expansion of the successful "Sunwing Collections" proving to be the most talked about features.

Sunwing once again offers 5 exclusive "Sunwing Collections", each tailored to meet the individual and specific needs of travellers, and each containing only resorts that were recommended by past Sunwing guests. The 5 collections offer something for everyone and include a "Luxury Collection", featuring high-quality luxury resorts, a "Family Collection", offering all inclusive family-friendly resorts, a "Couples Collection", featuring exclusive adults-only resorts, a "Villas & Condos Collection", for that home away from home, and a "Small & Friendly" collection, for those seeking a more intimate atmosphere.

What is unique to Sunwing is that every resort included in a collection must meet six defining standards. For example, to be included in the "Luxury Collection", resorts must be rated 4+ or 5 stars, offer a choice of well appointed suites or more spacious rooms, feature an in-room mini-bar in each guestroom, include complimentary room service, offer 3 or more à la carte dinner options, have on-site spa facilities, and they must have achieved a feedback score of 90% or more from past Sunwing travellers.

"We'd like to thank the Sunwing team, and our hotel and destination partners that have helped shape our most successful series of launches ever", commented Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations. "It's excellent to see that coming out of those launches, Sunwing Collections are once again proving very popular. Coupled with the Price Drop Guarantee currently in place, now is the time to secure your place in the sun at the perfect resort for you".

All Sunwing Collection vacation packages include flights aboard the "High Frills" Sunwing Airlines, where passengers are treated to the award winning Champagne Service, which includes a bon-voyage glass of champagne, hot towel service, a choice of hot meals at lunch and dinner served with choice of wine, and complimentary in-flight entertainment, including first run movies. For just $40 more per flight segment, travellers can upgrade to Sunwing's Elite Plus service, which features advance seat selection, separate check-in at a majority of airports, advance boarding, 30 kg baggage allowance, and extra legroom seats.
