Sunwing Airlines Introduces New Direct Flights to Playa Blanca Airport (RIH) in Panama, Now Closer to the Beach

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 08, 2014) - With effect from August 1, 2014, Sunwing Airlines will be offering year-round direct flights from Toronto to the Playa Blanca Airport (also known as Scarlett Martinez International Airport) in Panama. This winter, Sunwing will also introduce flights to Playa Blanca Airport from several Quebec gateways in 2014, including Montreal starting in November, Quebec City starting in December, and Bagotville starting February 2015.

"The Playa Blanca region is a popular destination with Sunwing travellers and these direct flights will dramatically improve our passengers' vacation experience," says Andrew Dawson, COO of Sunwing Travel Group. He continues to say, "There will be no more two-hour transfers from the previously used busy hub airport in Panama City. Now the majority of the resorts will be within a ten minute drive of this brand-new airport, a game changer when making holiday destination choices for our passengers."

Sunwing Vacations is the only Canadian company to have confirmed flights to the Playa Blanca Airport and to celebrate, Sunwing landed its first flight on April 4, 2014 as part of the Playa Blanca Airport Opening Ceremony.

Sunwing Vacations offers several great resort choices in Panama and direct flights with quick transfers, making Panama a convenient vacation destination in Central America. We will be offering flights from Quebec City and Bagotville for the high season for the first time this upcoming year.

The new flights from Toronto to Playa Blanca Airport will operate weekly starting on August 1, 2014, while Montreal flights will begin November 14, 2014. A one-week vacation package to Sheraton Bijao Beach Resort, a Sunwing Smile™ resort featuring many family-friendly perks, starts from just: $595 + $345 taxes per person, based on double occupancy departing from Toronto on September, 5, 2014 thru October, 17, 2015.
