The Cayman Islands enjoyed a record-breaking year in tourism and that looks likely to be topped in 2020 after Canadian travel giant Sunwing announced it is launching a new route to Grand Cayman.
The tour operator’s new seasonal flight service from Toronto to the Owen Roberts International Airport will launch from Feb. 2 through to May 3, 2020 initially.
A Sunwing spokesman said: “We are excited to be offering travellers departing from Toronto Pearson even more ways to vacation better this winter with the addition of this new destination. With its pristine beaches and picturesque landscapes, we’re sure that Grand Cayman will be a popular choice amongst Torontonian sun-seekers.”
The flights will be operating once-weekly on Sundays, a big boost for Cayman from the important Canadian market.
“We are so pleased to welcome Sunwing in offering Canadians with more opportunities to visit the Cayman Islands,” said Rosa Harris, director of tourism at the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. “We are proud to share our exceptional attractions, from our pristine Seven Mile Beach to the Crystal Caves and, as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean, our diverse and exceptional restaurants.”
Sunwing has a broad footprint across the wider Caribbean region. The company said it would be highlighting Grand Cayman’s Margaritaville Beach Resort on Seven Mile Beach for travellers from Toronto.
