REGINA – Sunwing says it is cancelling many of its flights out of Regina for the rest of this winter.
The airline says in a statement sent to local media outlets that it will start flying to Puerto Vallarta again on Sundays, starting Feb. 4, and will still fly to Puerto Vallarta, Cancun and Mazatlan on the Family Day weekend.
It says other customers may be able to transfer their Regina reservations to Winnipeg, Saskatoon or other airports, pending availability, or they can cancel their southern vacations for a full refund.
The airline is apologizing to its customers, but says the cancellations were necessary due to “operational and business constraints.”
The Regina International Airport says in a post on social media that it’s disappointed by the news.
Sunwing had earlier announced that it was suspending all flights from the Regina and Saskatoon airports until early February due to extenuating circumstances.
It says it plans to restore flights in Regina for the 2023-24 winter season. (CJME, CTV Regina)
