Sunwing Airlines Honoured With Consumer Choice Award for the Third Year in a Row

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 25, 2016) - Sunwing Airlines has been awarded the 2016 Consumer Choice Award in the category of Aircraft Charter Services for the Greater Toronto Area. This is the third consecutive year the airline has received this important accolade. The award is only conferred upon a very select group of business owners and entrepreneurs recognized by customers for their business excellence.

Established in 1987, the Consumer Choice Award is the only organization in Canada to conduct independent market research surveys to determine brand reputation and customer satisfaction. Companies are ranked based on over 1,250 customer surveys carried out by some of the largest, independent Canadian-owned research companies.

Jeff Havercroft, Vice President, Consumer Choice Award commented. "We are thrilled to once again award Sunwing Airlines a Consumer Choice award as Toronto's top service provider in the category of Charter Airlines. It is an honour for Consumer Choice Award to have our brand aligned with such a strong reputable organization as Sunwing Airlines."

The news was welcomed by Mark Williams, President of Sunwing Airlines, who commented, "We are delighted to have won this prestigious award for a third consecutive year. Sunwing Airlines is proud of offering convenient and direct flights to some of the most popular sunshine destinations from over 45 different gateways in Canada and the USA on a modern, fuel efficient fleet. We are so pleased our award-winning on board experience, Champagne Service, has been recognized once again by our passengers. "

Once on board, passengers can look forward to starting their vacation off in style with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine as part of the airline's award-winning in-flight service. They'll also enjoy a Hot & Fresh Bistro Meal™ served with a choice of red or white wine, hot towel service and a generous 23kg baggage allowance at no additional charge*. Those who want to further enhance their in-flight experience can upgrade to Elite Plus Service from only $50 per flight segment and benefit from a host of additional features that include advance seat selection, extra legroom seats, checked 30kg baggage allowance and dedicated Elite Plus check-in.

Sunwing Airlines also stands out for having the country's youngest and most fuel efficient fleet of Boeing 737-800s. The first carrier in Canada to commercially fly airplanes with Split Scimitar Winglets which significantly reduce fuel emissions, as well as taking delivery of four new Boeing 737-800s over the past year, the airline also has four new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft on order. Described as delivering 20 percent lower fuel use than older 737s, the acquisition of these new aircraft will further strengthen the airline's reputation of having one of the country's most environmentally friendly fleets.
