Sunwing seizes opportunity as Air Transat ditches Saskatoon
Hours after Air Transat confirmed it would scrap flights in and out of Saskatoon this winter, Sunwing unveiled plans to keep flying vacationers to Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.
In a news release issued this week, Sunwing Airlines Inc. said it plans to provide weekly flights out of the city beginning Nov. 5 — leading to praise from the Saskatoon Airport Authority’s chief executive.
“Skyxe Saskatoon Airport appreciates the dedication of our air carrier partner, Sunwing Airlines, who has remained committed to the Saskatchewan market,” Stephen Maybury said in the Sunwing news release.
“Offering our customers the convenience of departing from their local airport is one of our key commitments,” wrote Andrew Dawson, Sunwing’s head of tour operations.
Sunwing issued its news release shortly after Air Transat said it would stop offering service out of the city. Air Transat declined an interview request but spokeswoman Debbie Cabana provided a written statement.
“We are currently in a transition period related to our fleet reconfiguration. This, combined with certain decisions of a commercial nature, has prompted us to make adjustments to our flight programs,” Cabana wrote.
“These include reduced flight frequency in certain markets and, in some cases, complete market withdrawal.”
The situation in Regina is identical to Saskatoon, with Air Transat confirming its plan to exit the market and Sunwing seizing the opportunity to confirm its plan to continue flying out of the Queen City.
“We are delighted to see Sunwing provide our community with so many exciting options to escape the cold weather this winter,” Regina Airport Authority CEO James Bogusz said in a statement.
A spokeswoman for WestJet, which also flies to vacation destinations, said in an email that the Calgary-based airline doesn’t comment on route additions or extra flights for competitive reasons.

Sunwing's fuel bill may be compensated by unruly passenger
A man from Canada has potential to be charged $A22,700 after his drunken and disorderly behaviour caused the Sunwing aeroplane to make an emergency return to the airport while accompanied by two F-15 U.S. Air Force jets. The man has pleaded guilty to various charges of aggressive and disorderly conduct committed during a Cuba-bound Sunwing flight last summer. The 40-year-old man will be sentenced April 18 and prosecutors are requesting Nassios, the man in question, pay damages and serve three years probation, according to court documents, CTV News reported.
The massive fine factors in the carrier's aeroplane fuel, landing fees, overtimes salaries for Sunwing employees and hotel costs for the 170 stranded passengers. The incident happened July 6, 2017, when the Sunwing flight left Pierre Trudeau International Airport in Montreal for Cuba. Nassios allegedly began making threats and acting “aggressively” on board. For the safety of the passengers the flight turned around shortly after takeoff and returned to the airport.
