Sunwing - Flight to Mazatlán from Montreal

Toronto, ON – December 19, 2018 - The first Sunwing flight from Montreal to Mazatlán departed from Pierre Elliott Trudeau International yesterday. This flight marks the first of this season’s new weekly flight service to this popular Pacific Mexican destination, departing every Tuesday until April 16, 2019, inclusive. With the introduction of this new route, travellers in the Montreal area can now enjoy convenient flight services to 29 of the most popular sunshine destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida this winter.

Sam Char, Executive Vice President for Sunwing Travel Group in Quebec, commented on the news, “We are excited to be offering travellers in Montreal with even more ways to Vacation Better this winter. Known as the Pearl of the Pacific with top-rated resorts in the lively Golden Zone, neoclassical architecture in Old Mazatlán and top-rated beaches along the sparkling coast, we’re sure the addition of Mazatlán to our roster of destinations will be well received.”

“During this cold weather, travellers will appreciate having a new sun destination available to them from Montréal”, said Philippe Rainville, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aéroports de Montréal. “We’d like to thank Sunwing for offering this new destination, which will allow Montréal travellers to enjoy the sun and beach and give them a chance to experience the rich Mexican culture and history of Mazatlàn.”
