Sunwing to offer flights from Mont-Joli, Quebec for the first time this coming winter

TORONTO, June 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Sunwing is excited to announce that it will be adding a new Quebec gateway for this coming winter. Beginning Thursday December 21, 2017 and operating weekly until March 22, 2018 travellers will be able to depart from Mont-Joli, in the Bas St-Laurent region, to the popular vacation destination of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  This will be the first time that local residents have ever had the opportunity to travel to a sun destination from their local airport. The addition of the new gateway by Sunwing also means that Quebecers will have six different gateways across the province to choose from when they book their vacation with the #1 to the sun this winter.

Executive Director of Sunwing Vacations Quebec, Sam Char, welcomed the news adding, "Providing our customers with the option to save time and money by departing from their local airport has long been a priority for us at Sunwing and we are delighted to be offering vacation packages from Mont-Joli for the first time. Punta Cana is consistently one of our most popular destinations and we are sure that it will be well received by residents of Mont-Joli seeking a tropical escape this winter."

Mme Lavoie, President of Mont-Joli Regional Airport added, "For several years, the people of Bas St-Laurent /Gaspésie have been asking for flights to sun destinations from Mont-Joli. Today, we are very excited to welcome the arrival of Sunwing, a reputable tour operator offering vacations in beautiful destinations. This new addition will also benefit nearby businesses."
