Sunwing adds another gateway: Sept Iles, Quebec
Palm trees, sunny beaches and the contagious rhythm of merengue - they're all now a little closer for the residents of Sept Iles, Que., and the north shore of the St. Lawrence River.
That's because the Sunwing Travel Group, one of the country's leading package holiday companies, has again expanded in Quebec with the launch of the first ever flights to the Caribbean direct from Sept Iles Airport. The flights will operate to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic every Wednesday from February 11 to April 8.
Sam Char, executive director of Sunwing Quebec, commented: "Our research showed that there are sufficient numbers of potential travellers within driving distance of the Sept Îles Airport who will welcome the opportunity for a holiday in the sun without having to drive to Montreal or Quebec City."
Travellers will be tempted by one and two week holidays to the sunny north coast of the Dominican Republic, where Sunwing features 15 all-inclusive resorts. Hotel brand names include Barcelo, Iberostar, Viva Wyndham, Blue Bay and Bahia Principe. In addition Sunwing is featuring the Casa Marina Beach and Reef Resort, designated as a Sunwing "Club" Hotel, which means that all Sunwing guests automatically receive added complimentary benefits. The area is also known for its wide beaches, casinos and superb golf.
All Sunwing packages include return airfare direct from Sept Iles, transportation to your hotel, accommodation, all meals, drinks, plenty of activities and nightly entertainment. Some hotels offer additional facilities such as a kids' club, wedding and honeymoon packages, and promotional offers for golfers.
Sept-Îles is just the latest addition to Sunwing's departure points from Quebec, and with it, Sunwing becomes the first tour operator ever to offer flights from five gateways in the province.
The operator prides itself in offering departures from mid-sized cities, as well as Canada's largest cities, and has proudly introduced service from communities such as Sudbury, Saint John, N.B., Val d'Or and Bagotville. "We are very proud to be pioneers in this beautiful part of Quebec," said Char, adding that travel agents in the region have already expressed their delight at the convenience and value of the new packages.
All flights are on board Sunwing Airlines, which this winter will operate a fleet of 15 Boeing 737s across the country. On all flights, passengers enjoy a range of benefits such as hot towel service, bon-voyage glass of champagne, a choice of hot meals served with wine and inflight entertainment with yours-to-keep headsets - all included in the ticket price. For an additional $40 each way, passengers can enjoy advance seat selection, extra legroom seating, 30 kg baggage allowance and pre-boarding.
