TORONTO, June 9 /CNW/ - Sunwing Travel Group, one of Canada's largest vertically integrated travel companies, has been listed for the 6th consecutive year as one of "Canada's Fastest Growing Companies" by PROFIT Magazine. The magazine, on newsstands now, ranks the country's most successful companies based on their revenue growth over the past 5 years and is celebrating the achievement and entrepreneurial spirit of businesses which have thrived despite a challenging economic climate.
The only airline and tour operator on the list, the Sunwing Travel Group attributes much success to its continued focus on delivering quality and value to customers combined with having what is arguably the most experienced executive team in the travel industry. Colin Hunter, Chairman of the Board at Sunwing Travel Group, was a co-founder of the national tour operator International Travel Holdings (Adventure Tours, Fiesta Holidays, Sol Vac, P.S. Holidays & Fiesta West).
Over the past year, Sunwing Travel Group has grown again after entering into a strategic venture with travel giants TUI Travel PLC which saw the amalgamation of national tour operator Signature Vacations and travel retailer SellOffVacations.com under the Sunwing Travel Group portfolio.
"Our tremendous growth would not have been possible without the support of our travel partners, who we share this recognition with," said Stephen Hunter, CEO of Sunwing Travel Group, adding "We are happy to be acknowledged for fulfilling a need in the Canadian market for a superior class of charter airline service and quality vacation packages at affordable prices."
Sunwing has recently launched its Winter 2010/11 brochure, offering a record 132 routes across its 29 gateways and 32 destinations, all including 'champagne flights' on Sunwing Airlines. For more information, visit www.sunwing.ca
