TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 02, 2014) - Sunwing Vacations is expanding its Florida program across Canada with the introduction of new flights to Orlando from several additional gateways including Winnipeg, Gander, Deer Lake and Moncton. Sunwing already offers convenient direct service to Orlando with daily flights from Toronto and weekly flights from Halifax. With the launch of these additional flights combined with great introductory rates, more Canadian travellers will have convenient and affordable access to visit this popular vacation hotspot.

The new Winnipeg-to-Orlando flights will operate on Sundays starting December 21, 2014 until April 12, 2015. Travellers from Gander and Deer Lake, Newfoundland can enjoy weekly flights to Orlando on Thursdays between March 19 and May 07, 2015. Passengers from Moncton, New Brunswick can take advantage of weekly Thursday flights starting February 12 until May 07, 2015.

"With the overwhelming success of our Orlando program and feedback received from our customers and travel agent partners, we are pleased to offer this popular destination to more Canadian travellers this winter," says Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer of Sunwing Travel Group. "Orlando is an important part of our vacation offering because it truly does have something for everybody -- families, honeymooners, singles and couples -- and it fits into every budget."

"Canada is our second largest international market and the decision by Sunwing to expand its Canadian service is exceptional news for our community," says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. "Not only will Sunwing add service to its existing gateways, it is also starting service from two new markets that have never had access to the United States, Gander and Deer Lake."

Sunwing Vacations' value-packed Orlando program offers the ultimate family vacation and a great place to take the kids, with guaranteed warm weather, lots of sunshine, and an endless number of things to see and do.

Orlando is home to Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld®, LEGOLAND®, and so many more attractions -- you will keep the kids busy and amused all week. The destination also features great shopping and outlet malls, which is considered the second largest attraction in the area, while also offering every imaginable type of cuisine, some of the best golf courses, activities for all ages and tremendous value.

Sunwing features an infinite variety of accommodation from budget hotels to deluxe properties, including a wonderful selection of hotels within and near major theme parks. Vacation packages to Orlando include roundtrip airfare onboard Sunwing Airlines, hotel accommodation, and a mid-sized car rental to get around. Sunwing's Orlando Holiday Homes are quickly growing in popularity among families, as each holiday home features three to seven bedrooms and a private pool. Every family-style holiday home package of 2 bedrooms or more offers a 7-seater minivan rental included in the vacation price.

Sunwing also sells tickets to all major attractions in conjunction with its packages. Customers can book their tickets and passes ahead of time, so that when they step off their flight and pick up their car, they can get started right away enjoying all Orlando has to offer.
