Sunwing’s 2020 domestic program to kick off June 26

TORONTO — Sunwing’s domestic program will be back for its 15th consecutive season on June 26 with flights from Toronto to Newfoundland as well as Vancouver.

Three gateways in Newfoundland have been announced, starting with St. John’s with Monday-Friday service starting June 26 until Sept. 9. The airline will also offer twice-weekly flights from Toronto to Gander International Airport on Tuesdays and Fridays from June 26 until Sept. 8, and weekly flights to Deer Lake Airport on Wednesdays from July 1 until Sept. 9.

In addition to Toronto-Newfoundland service, Sunwing will be operating weekly flights from Toronto to Vancouver International Airport on Thursdays from July 2 to Oct. 8, as well as flights from Vancouver to Toronto on Sundays from June 28 until Oct. 4.

The launch of its domestic program comes on the heels of Sunwing’s new flexible booking options that give travellers added peace of mind. Among its new options are a complimentary Price Drop Cash Back, $100 reduced deposit and flexible payment options where travellers can book now and pay over time with monthly payments.

Thanks. Very strange announcement given that NL has not yet said when they will reopen their borders and have had one of the tightest covid responses in the country, not allowing any tourists to date, or non-residents at all that aren’t essential workers for that matter. Perhaps it will change by mid June, but I’m not so sure.

If NL opens up, then AC will also fly there. The question would be whether Sunwing's price will be better than AC to draw interest. I still have aeropeso points and can use them, or flying with AC will get ae points, plus if there are flight interruptions AC have more capacity to make adjustments.

If Italy can re-open to all tourists next month after everything they've been through, NL should be open already. Absolute madness.

AC didn’t stop flying to YYT, but only NLers with a local address or essential workers are allowed in for now. With no cases in NL for over a week and so many up this way in ON and QC, I don’t see them easing travel restrictions quickly.

I wasn’t commenting on the policy approach, just that it is a somewhat puzzling business decision to announce your first destination as one that is closed and unlikely to be very open to tourism in the near term. A NS woman is currently suing in order to go deal with the estate of her mother in NL - they are far from open for business/tourism.
