Direct flights from Toronto will operate on Thursdays starting on December 20, 2018 and will run until April 18, 2019. It's is anticipated to be the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer a direct flight service to Tobago.
With 125 rooms, the family-friendly resort combines an enviable beachfront situation with varied accommodations, complimentary sports, and activities such as sailing, as well two on-site restaurants, one of which specializes in fresh seafood and island cuisine.
“Travelers 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."
“We are excited to be entering into this partnership which reflects our commitment to the CARICOM countries of the Lesser Antilles,” said Stephen Hunter, President & CEO of Sunwing Travel Group. “We look forward to increasing tourism in Grenada, Tobago, and Barbados as we have recently done in St. Lucia and Antigua.”
Secretary for Tourism, Culture and Transportation for Tobago, Nadine Stewart-Phillips, also celebrated the new addition, “The Tobago House of Assembly welcomes Sunwing to Tobago. Sunwing’s flight and hotel package offering will significantly enhance our efforts in tourism at all levels.”
All Sunwing packages to Tobago include return airfare, airport transfers, accommodations and the services of a Sunwing representative. Ten adults travelling together can receive special prices, added values, and reduced deposits.
In-flight, passengers can enjoy award-winning in-flight service, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford.
