Sunwing to launch its first route to Tobago

Just in time for the Christmas holidays, Sunwing Airlines will open a direct route to Tobago. 

Starting December 20, direct flights from Toronto to Tobago will operate. Flights will operate every Thursday until April 18, 2019. 

Sunwing is anticipated to be the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer a direct flight service to Tobago.

President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, Andrew Dawson, said, “We are delighted to be offering our customers even more choice from Toronto this winter with the addition of the island of Tobago. Offering beach relaxation, warm Caribbean hospitality and a wide range of tours and excursions to experience, we’re sure that Tobago will prove to be a popular addition to our roster.”

“Travellers departing from Toronto Pearson have a new choice for their travels to the south this winter, with Sunwing’s weekly service to the island of Tobago,” said Kim Stangeby, Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “This new destination provides convenient nonstop access to leisure travel options in the area and further enhances the network of more than 170 destinations passengers can reach with direct service from Toronto Pearson."

Secretary for Tourism, Culture, and Transportation for Tobago, Nadine Stewart-Phillips, also celebrated the new addition saying, “The Tobago House of Assembly (THA) welcomes Sunwing to Tobago. Sunwing’s flight and hotel package offering will significantly enhance our efforts in tourism at all levels.”

Sunwing will offer a number of resorts on the island including the new Starfish Tobago Resort which is set to open in December. The family-friendly resort combines a beachfront situation with varied accommodations, complimentary sports and activities such as sailing and two on-site restaurants, one of which specialises in fresh seafood and island cuisine.

All Sunwing packages to Tobago include return airfare and airport transfers, accommodations and the services of a Sunwing representative.

Ten adults travelling together can receive special prices, added values, and reduced deposits. Passengers also benefit from a generous complimentary 23kg checked luggage allowance.
