Sunwing Adds Three New Summer Flight Services From Edmonton

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 09, 2015) - Following an extremely successful start to the 2014/2015 winter season, Sunwing Vacations is pleased to announce that it will be increasing its flight services over the summer months to offer residents of Edmonton a number of new options for summer getaways.

For summer 2015, the airline will be offering three new weekly summer flights to some of its most popular sun destinations -- Cayo Coco in Cuba, the island of Grand Bahama and Los Cabos on Mexico's Baja peninsula. In addition, the weekly connection to the popular Mexican vacation destination of Cancun that previously operated via Calgary will become a direct service over summer 2015.

The announcement was welcomed by Traci Bednard, Vice President of Passenger Market Development at Edmonton International Airport, who commented, "Sunwing has been bringing the sun to Edmonton and area travellers since 2008. Sunwing Vacations accounts for almost 20% of sun destination travel from Edmonton. More flights to more places help drive our region's economy, so the new summer services are great news." 

Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer for the Sunwing Travel Group added, "Edmonton is our largest gateway in Western Canada and we are delighted to be able to extend our summer programming to maintain some of the most popular routes all year."

The new summer services will enable vacationers from Edmonton to experience some of Sunwing's most popular resorts. Set on an inimitable stretch of Bahamas shoreline, the Memories Grand Bahama Beach & Casino Resort is another popular choice. Little ones are kept busy at the splash park and supervised kids club; while parents will no doubt appreciate the unlimited green fees included at the neighbouring Championship golf course and the range of a la carte dining options available in resort.

Handpicked for Sunwing's exclusive Family Collection, Memories Flamenco Beach Resort on the breathtaking island of Cayo Coco, Cuba has all the elements for a carefree family vacation including supervised kids clubs, spacious family-friendly rooms and a full entertainment program.

A week's stay at the Memories Flamenco Beach Resort is available from $775 plus $356 tax per person based on two people sharing a Junior Suite Garden View Room and departing from Edmonton on either May 27 or June 03, 2015.
