TORONTO, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunwing has confirmed that they will be returning to Sudbury this winter and will be adding a new flight service to Montego Bay. The travel company has operated from Sudbury for the past 11 years, but this coming season will mark the first time that they have offered local residents two different destinations for their winter escape.  The new flight service will depart Thursdays between December 20, 2018 and April 11, 2019. In addition, the tour operator’s perennially popular seasonal flight service to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic will operate weekly from December 19, 2018 until April 3, 2019.

Lined with sparkling white-sand beaches, Montego Bay—or “MoBay” as it’s affectionately known—offers the ideal ambience for both relaxation and adventure. Travellers can experience all the destination has to offer with an array of Sunwing Experiences, from reggae and culture tours to visits of one of the island’s historical plantations.  They could also take a tranopy tour of the island’s lush interior or scale world-famous Dunn’s River falls.  

President of Tour Operations, Andrew Dawson, for Sunwing explained that the move to expand the number of destinations from Sudbury this coming winter was a result of consumer demand and feedback from our travel agency partners in the Greater Sudbury region. “Our seasonal Sudbury flight service has been consistently well received so we were delighted to be able to add Jamaica, another one of our most popular destinations.”

 “We are thrilled to welcome Sunwing back to Greater Sudbury for their 12th season," said Todd Tripp, CEO of the Greater Sudbury Airport. "Punta Cana has always been a popular sun destination choice for Sudbury travellers and we are delighted that Sunwing is doubling their flight service over the 2018/2019 winter season to now offer Montego Bay, Jamaica as an option. Both Punta Cana and Montego Bay provide local travellers with excellent winter escape choices."

Sunwing offers a wide range of resort options in Montego Bay including Sensatori Azul Beach Resort Jamaica, which now also benefits from an adults only section. Situated on the shores of the famous Seven Mile Beach, this resort is both family and adult-friendly with cooking classes for kids, an exciting Splash Park, as well as an exclusive beach and pool area that comes with butler service for adults who upgrade to the Premium Couples room category.

Popular among families, the recently-renovated RIU Palace Tropical Bay welcomes guests with new modern rooms, a redesigned pool area, an action-packed RiuLand Kids Club with an enlarged pool and playground, as well as a new lounge bar and café. Featuring an enviable beachfront, the resort also offers guests many complimentary activities included such as kayaking, water volleyball, windsurfing, boogie boarding and snorkelling. Plus, vacationers who travel with Sunwing will enjoy exclusive RIU®-topia inclusions such as unlimited à la carte dining, spa discounts and much more.
