Sunwing Vacations Extends Flight Season From Sault Ste. Marie to Punta Cana Next Winter

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 02, 2015) - Thanks to a highly successful 2014/15 season operating flights from Sault Ste. Marie to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Sunwing Airlines is returning next winter with an extended weekly schedule of flights, commencing Friday November 13, 2015 and running until March 25, 2016.

The award-winning airline has been offering sunshine flights from Sault Ste. Marie since 2008. Renowned for its Champagne Service, passengers can start off their vacation in style with a sparkling wine toast and enjoy complimentary Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals™ served with a choice of wine at lunch and dinner, and in-flight entertainment on their way to this popular vacation destination.

"We are very pleased to be flying to Punta Cana from Sault Ste. Marie again next winter," said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer of the Sunwing Travel Group. "Our first season was a big success. Punta Cana is one of our most popular destinations where we have a number of recently opened resorts."

The news was also welcomed by Terry Bos, CEO Sault Ste. Marie Airport Development Corporation (SSMADC) who added, "The SSMADC is very excited to welcome back Sunwing Airlines for another winter season. Having direct charter operations provided by Sunwing to such attractive winter locations is a much needed attraction for the Sault Ste. Marie Airport. Sunwing has provided great service and different options for the past number of years, and the SSMADC looks forward to maintaining a long term partnership. These additional flights will also enhance the SSMADC's opportunity of achieving its goal of generating 200,000 passengers in a 12 month period."

Several of Sunwing's most popular properties are located in Punta Cana. CHIC Punta Cana opened in December of last year to wide acclaim. The innovative resort channels South Beach and Las Vegas into one All Exclusive™ experience, with its Oxygen Bar, personal poolside cabanas, a DJ booth in the pool and a "Culinary Experience" chef's table. The resort is part of Sunwing's Adults Collection™, a carefully selected group of adults-only resorts available only from Sunwing that have been highly recommended by past guests and Sunwing's team of experts for their superior amenities and facilities.

Another firm favourite is multiple award-winning Memories Splash Punta Cana Resort and Spa, part of Sunwing's Family Collection™, where younger travellers receive many extra benefits. With complimentary access to the largest waterpark in the Caribbean on-site, the all-inclusive resort offers guests unparalleled service, deluxe accommodations, unlimited reservation-free dining and 24-hour snacks. There's also a Kids Adventures program and a teen lounge to keep everyone in the family entertained.

Memories Splash Punta Cana Resort and Spa recently won the prestigious Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor and Traveler's Choice Award from TripAdvisor for the second year in a row.

Part of Sunwing's Luxury Collection™, neighbouring Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino offers exclusive family and couples-oriented vacations in a picturesque tropical setting. Along with gourmet dining, relaxed evening entertainment, complimentary sports, activity and kids programs, guests can also take advantage of the adjacent water park at Memories Splash Punta Cana at no additional charge.

A week at Memories Splash Punta Cana starts from just $995 plus $430 taxes per person based on two people sharing a Deluxe Room on an all inclusive basis and departing from Sault Ste. Marie on November 13, 20, 27 and December 04, 2015.
