Sunwing understands the importance of offering Canadians across the country an opportunity to head south to sun destinations at an affordable cost, with the convenience of being able to fly right from "their doorstep". For this reason, Sunwing currently operates out of 33 Canadian gateways, including Charlottetown, PEI, with several vacation options offered.
