Maybe This Could Help Some Canadians??

Recommended Posts

Sunwing Airlines is offering free flights to Canadians unable to get home to Canada from various locations, including Mexico.  Not sure if they operate out of GDL.  




With travel restrictions and border closures, getting back here could be tricky for Canadians. One travel company is going above and beyond to bring people home amind the COVID-19 pandemic. Sunwing free repatriation flights are being offered to stranded Canadians who want to get home from southern destinations.

Everybody, including other airline customers, that is stranded outside of the country can get an available seat on a repatriation flight completely free of charge.

"We understand a lot of Canadians are still stranded outside the country and struggling to get home,” said Stephen Hunter, CEO of Sunwing Travel Group, in a news release. "That's why we want to open up any extra capacity we have. It’s the Canadian thing to do." 

This is part of the travel company's efforts to bring Canadians home from southern destinations after travel advisories were put in place, flights were cancelled and borders were closed.

On March 19, an additional 11,000 people are expected to land here at home thanks to the airline.

That will bring the company's total number of repatriated Canadians to more than 33,000.

Sunwing flies to more than 45 destinations in the U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America and operates out of 33 airports in Canada.

Sounds good at first except having to head to PV to take a chance on a last minute free seat at the counter....???  

Air Canada has non-stop bookings avail on (so far) a continuing basis from PV to Toronto for normal pricing.
