BST Vacations (Blowes & Stewart Travel Group Ltd) has unveiled its 2023 lineup of destinations for their Peterborough Departures program, which operates out of Peterborough, ON.
In 2023 BST Vacations will be travelling to their top four best-selling destinations of all time, and one exciting new destination.
They will fly to New York City; St. John's, Newfoundland; Boston, Massachusetts; Nashville, Tennessee; and now, Austin, Texas.
BST is excited to also announce a new airline partner for the 2023 Season - Nolinor Airlines.
Founded in 1992, Nolinor Aviation is the largest airline carrier offering specialized commercial charter flights in Canada.
The Boeing 737-800 is the largest aircraft in their fleet carrying 189 passengers. This aircraft type is part of the Boeing 737NG (Next Generation) series and is the aircraft that will be used for the 2023 season.
As another first for BST Vacations, this is the largest passenger aircraft to land/take off from the Peterborough Airport.
"2022 was a very exciting and successful return to the program after not being able torun for two years during the pandemic. That success would not have been possible without the support of our past passengers," said Scott Stewart, president of BST Vacations. "At the end of the 2022 season, we asked them for destination suggestions for 2023. Overwhelmingly our passengers asked us to return to cities that we visited previously over the past nine years of the program. We have given the people what they want, added Austin as a new destination, and are able to accommodate more passengers with the larger aircraft. We look forward to an amazing season of travel and exploring."
Food & beverage included
Just because passengers are flying far from home, "doesn’t mean that part of Peterborough won’t be with them," the company says.
The company says this is is "not your run of the mill travel experience" as food and beverage is included and is all locally sourced.
This is part of BST’s community first initiative, where rather than outsourcing the food and beverage to the airline, they bring it on themselves and support local businesses.
Continental breakfast and in-flight meals are hand picked and made to order the morning of the flight by Sobeys Catering department on Lansdowne Street.
Spirits and beer on board are from local distilleries and craft brewers also.
In 2022 BST Vacations served the Publican House Pet Pilsner on board and were able to collect $1500.00 in donations for the Humane Society’s Pet Project on their flights.
Passengers can also expect an enjoyable, hassle-free travel experience without the headache of battling traffic.
