Sunwing Vacations Extends Flight Season From Hamilton to Punta Cana and Varadero Next Winter

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 10, 2015) - Sunwing Vacations is returning to Hamilton next winter for a third season with an extended program of flights to both Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Varadero, Cuba. The airline doubled capacity last winter with the introduction of the Punta Cana route and will be beginning operations from mid-November this year, running until mid-April 2016.

On the way to these popular beach getaways, vacationers can look forward to starting their holiday off in style with a welcome glass of sparkling wine. They'll also enjoy Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals served with a choice of wine at lunch and dinner, and complimentary in-flight entertainment together with a generous 20 kg free baggage allowance as part of the airline's award-winning Champagne Service.
