Due to ongoing travel restrictions, Sunwing is extending its temporary suspension of flights until July 29, 2021, according to a notice posted to the company's website.
Sunwing's suspension of southbound flights was previously set to expire on June 23. On April 1, the tour operator also announced that it was suspending domestic flights to and from British Columbia and Newfoundland.
Canadian carriers have been extending their suspensions on a monthly basis ever since January’s announcement that saw Sunwing, Transat, WestJet and Air Canada, in a joint agreement with the Canadian government, ground all flights to Mexico and the Caribbean.
Sunwing, meanwhile, is gearing up for the winter 2021/2022 season as it has begun unveiling sun flights from communities such as Hamilton, Thunder Bay, London, North Bay, Sudbury, Waterloo and Windsor in Ontario, as well as select routes in Atlantic Canada.
Customers or travel agents impacted by cancelled flights are being contacted by Sunwing directly to review their options.
For any questions or concerns about cancelled flights, customers can contact their travel agent or get in touch with the Sunwing Sales Centre at 1-877-786-9464.
