Sunwing Vacations Begins Direct Flight Service From Grande Prairie to Cancun, Mexico

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 23, 2014) - Residents of Grande Prairie, Alberta, can look forward to a sunnier Christmas with the introduction of a convenient direct flight service to Cancun, Mexico for the first time on December 24, 2014.

Operated by Sunwing Airlines, passengers will enjoy a welcome glass of champagne, complimentary Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals™ served with wine, and in-flight entertainment with free headsets as part of the airline's award-winning Champagne Service on their way to this popular Mexican destination. They'll also benefit from a generous 20kg baggage allowance.

The launch of this convenient direct route is even more significant as it coincides with the grand opening of two exceptional new resorts exclusive to Sunwing Vacations, Royalton Riviera Cancun and an adults only, 'resort within a resort' The Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun.

A new addition to Sunwing's Family Collection™, the Royalton Riviera Cancun will cater to vacationers seeking plentiful activities and a wide array of amenities. Families can also look forward to a number of thoughtful little extras including beach towels delivered to their room, spacious family accommodation and Kids Stay, Play and Eat Free deals. The supervised Kids Club keeps the little ones busy with a splash pad and playground, while the Teen Club offers video games, billiards, table tennis, and free Wi-Fi. Nine on-site restaurants provide a wide range à la carte and buffet dining options including local Mexican fare, Italian and Japanese cuisine.

Part of Sunwing's Luxury Collection™ of four and five star hotels carefully selected for the quality of their à la carte restaurants, beachfront locations and spa facilities, The Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun offers a serene oasis where adults can relax and be pampered. Whether it's indulging in a rejuvenating treatment at the spa or sampling specialty cocktails at the adults-only pool, The Hideaway is ideal for those seeking sophisticated luxury, while offering full access to all the facilities of the Royalton Riviera Cancun. With a variety of spacious suites to choose from, The Hideaway provides guests with 24-hour room service, a private balcony or terrace, in-room Jacuzzi and rain shower.

Guests at both resorts can also take advantage of Royalton's All in Luxury™ experience where they'll benefit from unlimited in-room long distance calls to North America, free Wi-Fi and convenient in-room USB recharge and Bluetooth audio station, Dreambed™ together with a pillow menu, daily replenished mini-bar and 24-hour room service. Dining is stress free with no need for reservations at any of the on-site à la carte specialty restaurants.

Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer Sunwing Travel Group commented, "We're delighted to be able to introduce our Grande Prairie-Cancun schedule for the first time to coincide with the opening of these two brand new resorts that we're certain will exceed our customers' expectations."
