TORONTO, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunwing will be expanding its flight services from Kelowna for this coming winter to include a direct flight service to Los Cabos in Pacific Mexico for the first time; departing Saturdays from December 15, 2018 until April 20, 2019. With the addition of this new flight, residents of Kelowna can look forward to three convenient options to escape the cold. The travel company will also be resuming their popular weekly flight services into Cancun, Mexico and Varadero in Cuba.

Known for enjoying up to 360 days of sunshine each year, Los Cabos boasts numerous opportunities for adventure. Travellers can take advantage of numerous Sunwing Experiences such as teeing off at world-class golf courses, snorkelling and scuba diving or explore the beautiful coastal landscape on an ATV. One of the oldest parts of the southern Baja Peninsula, this tropical paradise features famous landmarks such as the Cabo San Lucas Arch and the traditional town of San Jose del Cabo; famed for its art scene.

President of Tour Operations, Andrew Dawson, welcomed the news. “We are delighted to be providing our customers in Kelowna with even more travel options this coming winter. Los Cabos is consistently one of our popular vacation destinations and we’re sure this new service will be well received.”

Sunwing is one of the country’s biggest travel providers to the popular Pacific Mexican destination. With the addition of the new flight service from Kelowna, the travel company will offer direct access to Los Cabos from 11 airports coast to coast.

“We are excited for additional direct service to Los Cabos for YLW passengers,” said Sam Samaddar, Airport Director. “We’ve heard from passengers that they want to see more service to sunny destinations, and this is just one way we’re working to make this a reality.”

Vacationers that take advantage of this new flight service could be among the first guests to experience the highly-anticipated Riu Palace Baja California, an adults only resort slated to open in December. Boasting stunning views of Los Cabos’ coastline, this all inclusive property will offer four sparkling infinity pools that overlook the ocean, five specialty restaurants and a host of premium amenities such as 24-hour room service and free Wi-Fi throughout the resort. What’s more, guests will also enjoy access to facilities at the neighbouring Riu Sante Fe, such as the new Splash Water World water park.  Vacationers who book their RIU vacation package with Sunwing also enjoy exclusive RIU®-topia inclusions such as unlimited à la carte dining, spa discounts, in-room liquor dispensers and much more.

Families will also appreciate the five-star accommodations and extensive activity programs at the recently-enhanced Krystal Grand Los Cabos. While the younger guests are enjoying the supervised activities at the kids and teens clubs, parents can take some time to themselves and relax in the beautiful infinity pool, dine at one of the resort’s five specialty restaurants onsite or sip on their favourite beverage while admiring the views from the resort’s panoramic Sky Bar.

All vacation packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can look forward to starting their vacation off in style with award-winning inflight service that includes a welcome sparkling wine toast, buy on board Sunwing Café menu with selections inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford and backpacks for children filled with games and toys.
