Mexico’s flagship resort area, Riviera Maya, will become a short flight away next winter as Sunwing adds direct flights from Windsor to Cancun, beginning December 21st, 2015.

The new route will be the only option to fly direct to Cancun from Windsor.

“We are delighted to offer this new Sunwing service directly out of Windsor as an extension to our regular program of winter flights that has been in operation here since 2010.” said Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer, Sunwing Travel Group. “This will be the first season that we are able to operate flights to three different destinations from Windsor and we feel that Riviera Maya is a great addition to the flying schedule. We look forward to welcoming vacationers from Southwestern Ontario to our recently opened Sunwing exclusive resorts in the area.”

Drew Dilkens, Mayor of the City of Windsor and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Windsor International Airport added, “The launch of the Cancun service is an important step in the growth of our airport.”

“Windsor Airport currently serves 252,000 passengers per year, and 2014 marked the third straight year in which our airport set a new passenger record. We are committed to continually expanding our range of air service to new destinations.  With a Cancun service added to the mix, Windsor and Essex residents will no longer have to make the long trek to Toronto, or negotiate an extra border-crossing into the U.S. We will be able to fly directly to Cancun from YQG with all the ease, comfort and convenience we have come to appreciate when using Windsor International Airport,” said Dilkens
