Sunwing Vacations returns to Fredericton with two Cuba flights next winter

Memories-HolguinSunwing Vacations is delighted to return to Fredericton, New Brunswick next winter for a 9th season, and this time, will offer two favourite Cuban destinations, Varadero and Holguin.

Direct weekly flights to Varadero on Fridays will begin on February 13, 2016 and operate until May 7, 2016. The Holguin weekly flight service will be available between February 9, 2016 and May 03, 2016. In addition, unlike other airlines, Sunwing offers free checked baggage along with other amenities including a welcome glass of sparkling wine, complimentary Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals™ served with wine, and in-flight entertainment that make up the airline’s award-winning Champagne Service.

Sunwing Vacations offers over 130 flights a week from gateways across Canada to many different destinations in Cuba, making it the largest Canadian tour operator to Cuba.

“We are very pleased to be returning to Fredericton next winter,” said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer of the Sunwing Travel Group.  “Fredericton has always been a very successful market for us and that’s why we are adding a second destination for the first time.

“One of our most popular destinations,  Cuba not only offers a year-round mild and sunny climate and spectacular beaches, but Sunwing vacationers this winter will be able to experience some of our newest resorts that have recently opened in Varadero and Holguin,” he added.

“We’re delighted that Sunwing is returning to Fredericton and expanding their service in the 2016 season. Sun destinations—and Cuba especially—have always been popular with our travellers, and we have no doubt that Holguin will be a successful addition to Sunwing’s lineup at the Fredericton International Airport,” commented Johanne Gallant, President and CEO of the Fredericton International Airport Authority.

Among Sunwing’s extensive hotel selection in Cuba, the tour operator offers the Memories chain of hotels exclusively across the island. The company just announced the opening of Grand Memories Varadero, the first property within the popular Memories chain to carry the “Grand” distinction, indicating upgraded level of service, accommodation and amenities. Boasting 1,110 rooms and suites, the resort caters to all vacationers through its three unique sections: Family, Adults Only, and the upgraded Diamond Club section.

Also new and exclusive to Sunwing this spring is the adults only Memories Jibacoa, offering great dive packages and a lush tropical setting away from the crowds. Families will also want to consider Memories Varadero Beach Resort, part of the Sunwing Family Collection™ where there’s a vast array of watersports and daily activities, as well as a supervised Kids and Baby Club and comfortable accommodations.

Sunwing offers another Memories property in Holguin, the Memories Holguin Beach Resort. Located on a pristine beach amidst lush foliage and surrounded by sprawling pools, the hotel offers spacious rooms and a host of all-inclusive amenities and services. There are supervised children’s activities, appearances by famous kids’ characters, and a teen lounge. Capitalizing on its idyllic and romantic beachfront setting, the expansive resort also offers professional wedding planners for brides and grooms-to-be and planning services for honeymoons and other special occasions.

A week staying at the Memories Holguin Beach Resort is available from $995 plus $370 taxes and is based on double occupancy departing from Fredericton on February 09, 2016.
