This latest addition to Sunwing’s winter flight schedule (which already includes a number of the region’s most popular vacation hotspots such as Montego Bay, Jamaica and Cancun, Mexico) brings the total number of destinations offered from Calgary to 15.
Sharing coastlines with both the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean and boasting a lush interior carpeted with rainforests, Costa Rica is truly a tropical escape.
Active travelers will appreciate the opportunity to partake in a number of water sports like scuba diving, surfing and parasailing along the 1,200kms of coastline; while nature lovers can explore the trails of the amazing rainforests to spot the thousands of plant and animal species – from bromeliads and tree frogs to yellow orchids and sloths – that call this small nation home.
Andrew Dawson, president of Tour Operations for Sunwing said, “Costa Rica is a wonderfully vibrant destination and offers something for every type of traveler – from eco-adventurers to beach lovers. We are delighted to be able to extend our programming from Calgary Airport to offer a direct connection for the first time this winter.”
“YYC Calgary International Airport is the gateway for Albertans looking to explore destinations around the world, and we are thrilled to see our partners continue to grow their route network out of YYC due to continued demand from our passengers,” said Stephan Poirier, senior vice president & chief commercial officer for The Calgary Airport Authority.
“This latest addition of weekly service from Calgary to Costa Rica with Sunwing will add to our extensive list of leisure destinations available from YYC for Albertans looking to escape the winter months.”
