• Our History
    The story of how a Canadian family-owned and operated organization became the largest integrated travel group in North America

The Sunwing Travel Group represents the culmination of over 40 years of travel experience and expertise amassed by the Hunter family. Since our inception, we have grown from the smallest tour operator in Canada to the largest tour operator in North America. Sunwing is a vertically integrated travel company that is comprised of two leading tour operators, Sunwing Vacations and Signature Vacations; charter airline Sunwing Airlines and luxury private jet charter service SunwingJets; a number of travel retail businesses; destination management companies; and the fastest growing hotel chain in the Caribbean. Perpetually on the PROFIT 500 list of Canada's fastest growing businesses, we have a strong customer service focus, passionate entrepreneurial spirit, and a deeply-rooted partnership with TUI Travel PLC, a leading leisure travel group with over 220 brands in 180 countries across the globe.

When Hurricane Irma and Maria hit the Caribbean in the fall of 2017, Sunwing, the foundation, and partner GlobalMedic worked tireless to ensure the safety of those in affected destinations. In addition to sending over 30 flights to repatriate travellers in threatened destinations, Sunwing hosted a humanitarian aid packing event with its employees to send supplies with GlobalMedic to Antigua on a Sunwing flight to support the 3000+ people affected in Barbuda where 99% of its buildings were significantly damaged. Some of the aid included hygiene kits and enough water purification tablets to Antigua to purify 1.5 million litres of water. Repatriation flights and humanitarian aid were also provided to St. Maarten and Cuba.
