February 19, 2015   |  

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 19, 2015) - Following an extremely successful start to the 2014/2015 winter season, Sunwing Vacations is pleased to announce that it will be increasing its flight service over the summer months to offer residents of Calgary a number of new connections to sun destinations.

For summer 2015, the airline will be offering two new direct flights to Cuba. Vacationers will be able to take advantage of a weekly service to Cayo Coco, Cuba departing each Wednesday along with a Thursday flight to Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba. This increase in scheduling is an addition to the regular Tuesday service to Varadero, Cuba that operated last summer.

Options to explore Mexico over the summer months direct from Calgary have also been increased, with direct weekly flights to Los Cabos being introduced to complement the existing weekly services to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. In addition, the weekly flight to Grand Bahama that commenced for the first time in November 2014 will be maintained to run throughout the summer months. The airport will also continue to benefit from a direct flight service to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer for the Sunwing Travel Group commented, "Our flights from Calgary this winter have been extremely well received and we are delighted to be able to extend our summer programming to maintain some of the most popular routes all year."

"We are pleased to see more great additions to our YYC route network," added Stephan Poirier, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for The Calgary Airport Authority. "Sunwing's increase in service means our growing destination list offers even more choices for our travellers looking to escape to a sun destination."

The summer Cancun service will allow vacationers to be amongst the first travellers to enjoy a summer break at two new resorts exclusive to Sunwing that opened just before Christmas.

Part of Sunwing's exclusive Family and Luxury Collections™, the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa boasts 843 luxurious rooms and suites and combines a privileged beachfront location with an array of activities to suit all ages. Children will delight in appearances by such characters as Mike the Knight™ and Max & Ruby™, and parents will appreciate the supervised daily activities at the "ClubHouse" Kids Club and "Hangout" Teens Club. For adults, the resort lights up at night with live entertainment shows, a disco featuring the house DJ, and all of the popular games at the on-site sports pub. Guests can indulge in mouth-watering culinary offerings around the clock, with a choice between nine modern restaurants. The property also has twelve distinctly-themed bars, including a discotheque and two Diamond Club® member only venues.

Dubbed a 'resort within a resort' the stylish adult only 340-room Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun is a tranquil boutique resort that caters to discerning guests over 18 years of age. Guests of the resort can take advantage of exclusive facilities and services including an à la carte restaurant, 5 bars, and an adults-only pool, while also enjoying all of Royalton Riviera Cancun's extensive facilities.

A week's stay at the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa is available from $1275 plus $396 taxes per person and is based on double occupancy of a Luxury Junior Suite from June 6, 2015. Return flights from Calgary and local transfers are also included.
