Travellers from Toronto can look forward to Saturday, Sunday and Thursday departures starting Dec. 1, 2018. Montreal residents can take advantage of flights on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday starting Saturday, Dec. 1. Convenient Saturday and Sunday departures will also be available from Quebec City beginning on Saturday, December 8, while weekly flights from Ottawa will depart Saturdays starting Dec. 15. Once the flight program commences, Sunwing is expected to be the only leisure carrier in Canada to offer direct flights to Miami from Ottawa and Quebec City this winter.

Vice President of USA and Cruises, Reg Mendes, explained that the move to add services to Miami this coming winter was a result of consumer demand, “Miami is a hub for beach and city stays and much more. This new flight program will offer our customers more ways to explore Florida together with even more convenient cruise package options.”

Hotels & cruises

Sunwing offers cruise packages with Norwegian Cruise Line and MSC Cruises sailing from Miami (including convenient transfers from the airport to nearby PortMiami) that offer a wide range of Caribbean itineraries. Customers could also choose a cruise & stay package and enjoy a vacation in Miami or Fort Lauderdale before or after they sail.

For customers looking to explore on land, all Miami vacation packages include a car rental. In Miami, travellers can opt to stay at Residence Inn Miami Sunny Isles Beach and Sole on the Ocean.

Canadians who visit Fort Lauderdale, a short drive from Miami, can stay at Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort or Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort which features an ocean view rooftop pool bar and family-friendly amenities including a supervised kids club.
