The first-ever Sunwing flight from Sudbury, Ontario to Montego Bay, Jamaica departed from Greater Sudbury Airport today. The flight marks the first of this season’s new weekly direct flight service from Sudbury to Montego Bay, departing every Thursday until April 11, 2019, inclusive. With the addition of this new flight service, along with the popular Punta Cana service that was offered last winter, residents of the Greater Sudbury area can now depart to two tropical destinations right from their doorstep.


President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, Andrew Dawson, commented on the news. “Our seasonal flight service from Sudbury has been well-received in past seasons and we are excited to be offering travellers in the Greater Sudbury region with even more ways to Vacation Better this winter by offering two popular vacation destinations for the first time. Sudbury residents can now easily explore all that Montego Bay has to offer with this convenient direct flight service, including its pristine beaches, world-famous tours and excursions and warm Caribbean hospitality.”


“Once again, we are thrilled to welcome Sunwing to Greater Sudbury for another season,” said Todd Tripp, CEO of the Greater Sudbury Airport. “With Sunwing now offering flight service to Montego Bay, Jamaica, for the 2018-2019 winter season, in addition to its popular flight to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, sun destination choices for Sudbury travellers have never been more convenient.”


Vacationers can choose from a range of resorts for all ages, tastes and budgets in Montego Bay. The recently-renovated Riu Palace Tropical Bay is located on one of the top-rated beaches in the Caribbean and is nestled in an idyllic bay, making it the ideal place for a relaxing beach getaway. The beachfront resort offers modern guestrooms, including options for connecting rooms that can accommodate families of five or more and a host of RIU-topia perks and privileges such as in-room liquor dispensers, daily champagne breakfasts, poolside wait service and more. Vacationers can also choose to stay at the popular Royalton Blue Waters, a top-rated family resort that’s home to a lazy river and an on-site water park with water slides and a splash pad.


All Sunwing vacation packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back and relax while on board, with award-winning inflight service, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford, including the brand-new Tex Mex Grilled Chicken Wrap and famous Mac & Cheese.
