TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunwing is adding Miami to its roster of destinations for the first time this winter. Travellers can take advantage of weekly convenient, direct Saturday and Sunday departures from Quebec City starting December 8, 2018. A first for the city of Quebec, Sunwing is expected to be the only leisure carrier to offer direct flights from Quebec City to Miami this winter.

Home to a packed year-round calendar of world-class entertainment, sports and cultural events, Miami offers travellers a sunny getaway with plenty of beaches, numerous restaurants and shopping opportunities. The city is also the perfect base from which to explore Southern Florida or embark on a cruise.

Executive Vice President of Sunwing Travel Group Quebec Sam Char, welcomed the news, “Saving our Quebec City customers time and money by offering them a wider choice of destinations directly from their doorstep is very important for us. This new flight program will offer our customers more options to explore Florida together with even more convenient cruise package options.”

President and Chief Executive Officer for the Jean-Lesage International Airport in Quebec City added, “We are thrilled that Sunwing will continue to offer flights to Florida, this time to Miami – a highly sought-after and valuable market.”

Sunwing offers cruise packages with Norwegian Cruise Line and MSC Cruises sailing from Miami (including convenient transfers from the airport to nearby PortMiami) that offer a wide range of Caribbean itineraries.  Customers could also choose a cruise & stay package and enjoy a vacation in Miami or Fort Lauderdale before or after they sail.

For customers looking to explore on land, all Miami vacation packages include a car rental. In Miami, travellers can opt to stay at Residence Inn Miami Sunny Isles Beach, which offers spacious suites with fully-equipped kitchens and easy access to Sunny Isles Beach, shopping and golf.  Located right on Sunny Isles Beach, Sole on the Ocean features an oceanfront pool and is close to popular restaurants and activities. 

Quebecers who visit Fort Lauderdale, a short drive from Miami, can stay at Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort, which enjoys a beachfront location near the historic Las Olas Boulevard or Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort which features an ocean view rooftop pool bar and family-friendly amenities including a supervised kids club.

All Sunwing packages to Florida include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford.
