Sunwing Vacations Adds a New Direct Flight From Sudbury to Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 16, 2015) - Christmas is set to come early for residents of Sudbury as Sunwing Vacations has just announced the addition of a new direct flight service to Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba commencing on Christmas Eve. Operating weekly between December 24, 2015 and March 24, 2016, the Thursday flight service brings one of Cuba's most attractive island destinations within a few hours away. Situated in Cuba's Jardines del Rey archipelago, Cayo Santa Maria is renowned for its white sandy coves and azure bays that are perfect for exploring on a snorkelling excursion or boat trip.

Travellers on their way to this popular Cuban destination can look forward to starting their vacation off in style with Sunwing Airlines. On board, they can relax with a welcome glass of sparkling wine and enjoy complimentary Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals™ served with wine and in-flight entertainment as part of the airline's award-winning Champagne Service. And unlike many other airlines, Sunwing also includes free checked baggage with a generous 20kg allowance.

Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing Vacations commented, "We are delighted to return to Sudbury for another season. Our sunshine flights have proved extremely popular here over the last 9 years and we have no doubt that Cayo Santa Maria will be well received this coming season. Along with some of Cuba's best beaches, the destination also stands out for its excellent accommodation choices. We're certain that the new route will become a firm favourite amongst vacationers this coming winter."

The news was also welcomed by Shirley de Silva, Director of Business Development at the Greater Sudbury Airport who added, "We are delighted that Sunwing is bringing this destination right to the doorstep of Sudburians. In addition to residents from the Greater Sudbury region, residents from the surrounding areas will also benefit from this option."

Couples and newlyweds alike may opt for the award-winning all inclusive Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, which delivers gracious hospitality, thoughtful service and first rate amenities. Part of Sunwing's Adults Collection™, this sophisticated, luxurious oasis was recently voted the number one 'All Inclusive Resort in the World' at the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards.
