Atlantic Canadians now have more opportunities to escape to paradise this winter with Sunwing

Amid easing border measures beginning on Feb. 28, 2022, the tour operator has moved quickly to meet the demand of customers in the Maritimes and expanded its flight service from Halifax to Varadero, Cuba. 

Beginning in March, Sunwing will be offering East Coast residents with another convenient weekly flight on Thursdays starting on March 10, 2022 until April 28, 2022. 

“As the only Atlantic Canada gateway offering flights to Cuba this winter, we’re thrilled to be introducing another flight from Halifax to Varadero for our customers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to enjoy,” commented Andrew Dawson, president of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “As a Canadian favourite and easy entry destination, we’re seeing pent-up customer demand for vacations to Varadero with increasingly limited availability for the duration of winter, so now is the time to book. With flexible change policies, medical coverage and this new convenient flight option from Halifax, we’re excited to help our Maritimes customers make the most of this season and enjoy a seamless vacation experience under our wing.”

In addition to weekly flights on Thursdays, Maritimes customers can benefit from existing flight service to Varadero on Saturdays until April 30, 2022.

The return of Thursday’s weekly direct flight is another step forward for the tour operator’s return to Cuba and a positive sign of Canadians’ growing eagerness to travel. 

Sunwing's comprehensive travel insurance options, including emergency COVID-19 medical coverage and quarantine expensesare also available for as little as $4 a day.
