Swoop Launches New Flight Route From Toronto To Cancun

Ultra-low-cost Canadian airline Swoop announced earlier this week that they would be adding a number of new routes from cities across Canada to sun destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean, and one of the new routes includes Toronto to Cancun. 

Starting this month, Torontonians can get daily direct flight services to Cancun through the airline. Base fares are currently starting at $269 for a one-way flight, with 8 flight frequencies per week during the high season.

Vacation Airline Sunwing Relaunches Direct Flight

Another direct flight route to Cancun that was announced recently was by Sunwing, Canada’s main vacation destination airline. While the company typically sells cost-friendly all-inclusive vacation packages to popular winter sun destinations for Canadian travelers, Sunwing also offers flight-only options allowing sun seekers to curate their own trips.

Among the relaunched flight routes added to Sunwing’s winter season itinerary this year are flight services to Cancun and Varadero, Cuba, from Thunder Bay, Ontario. This means that residents in western and northern Ontario won’t have to travel to London or Toronto to get to Cancun for their winter vacation this year.

“We’re excited to return to Thunder Bay this winter season, with direct Sunwing flights to two of our most popular vacation destinations in the tropics,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “As a longstanding partner for us at Sunwing, we’re thrilled to continue working together with Thunder Bay International Airport and help residents travel to paradise with ease from their local airport.”

This weekly light service from Thunder Bay to Cancun began last week on December 12th and will be running until April 10, 2023.
